    Default Nexus 4 not restarting

    HI Sorry if this has already been asked but I have no time to search.

    My wifes Nexus 4 crashed overnight while on charge and now we can't get it restarted. Has anybody got any solutions?

    Something similar happen last week. We woke to her phone off after crashing over night on charge but we got it restarted that time.

    Thanks for the help.

    Have you tried holding down the power button for up to 60 seconds, then plug in and press and release power button?

    +1 for holding the power button.

    What happens is if you hold the power button long enough, the device will be forced to shut down. Hold it longer and it'll boot up again (if the battery charge is sufficient).
