    That to me seem like a hardware issue. If you did not buy used, could it still be under warranty from where you got it. It is worth a try even if the warranty is out they may replace it or fix it for a small fee.

    Ye i got my replacement 2 days ago, and i still have 120 days warranty for it, so i think i might give a call and try to replace that one too.

I have discovered that if I hit my phone against my hand, the screen turns on and I can use the phone without problems. If I use the power button, I can't get further than the lock screen. I have already tried wiping the cache and factory reset, nothing helped. When I get the phone pass the lock screen it works fine. Does anyone know what could the problem be? Hardware or software? Because the button works, but the screen turns off immediately after sliding the lock screen.

    thanks
    The fact that you can make it work when you hit it against your hand, makes it seem like a bad connection, which make it a hardware issue not a software issue. I would take it to where you got it a see what they will do for you.

    Sorry if it has been raised before. I recently factory reset my N5 and every now and again it starts playing random music (which I presume is the default ringtone/alarm) Even though nobody is ringing me and there are no alarms.

    Just me?

    I know that you did a factory reset, however, you may want to try a cache partition wipe, wiping the partition will not cause data loss. When your system reinitialized just one bit/byte could have gotten written incorrectly. Clearing the cache would reinitialized settings. If that does not solve it you could change tone of alarms, to try to determine if it is a alarm or ringtone issue.

    Thanks. I think that it played the ringtone when a notification came through. All good now!

    I have a technical problem. I can't get my Mac command terminal to recognize my N5. Tried adb devices, ./adb devices, etc. Even tried a new data cord, with no luck. Anyone have a clue what's wrong? Thanks.

    I've never rooted or done anything w/ the OS on my phone, so I have several questions....
    1. After updating my N 5 from lollipop 5.0 to lollipop's latest, 5.1, I started getting the attached error every 5-10seconds. Any ideas what could have caused it? I tried closing all apps I had open, clearing the cache in all of my apps (including the playstore), and shutting the phone completely off and turning it back on, nothing changed. Nexus 5: Problems & Issues-2015-03-18.jpg
    2. My next step was to run the phone in recovery mode, so I shut the phone off and did the power+volume down button, selected recovery mode and then power button again. Much to my surprise, my phone simply showed the poor bot on it's back with the red exclamation triangle and "No command." Any clues as to what might have happened?
    (the only solution I found was to factory re-set the phone and just deal w/ doing the re-setting of the apps, no big deal but a pita).
    any insight is greatly appreciated.

    At this point you needed to Power+VolumeUp monetarily then you should get the menu of commands.

    Did you do a factory reset after upgrading to Lollipop? I know that no one wants to do such a thing however, doing so does clear up a lot of issues. It will cause data loss and app loss, so be sure to backup first. What version of Lollipop are you running on now?

    Sound as though this could be a hardware problem with the mic or the connecting cable. Is this under warranty?

    My Brother has the same Problem with his N5. Additional when he make videos, there is no sound. also "Ok Google" does not work.
    yesterday he updated to Android 5.1. He said the next 12 hours everything worked fine. I found that many people have this problem since Android 5.0, but the issue is fixed for them by Android 5.1.

    I already downgraded the phone to 5.0.1 and 4.4.4, but it still doesn't work.

    I considered to buy a new microphone, but it's weird that many people had exactly the same problem with Lollipop and he updated 12 hours before the problem started.

    Do anyone know if there is another way to fix this Problem?

    As to #2
    From what I have encountered, generally that is a recovery error. Your recovery is not properly installed. Try getting your recovery.IMG file off of googles dev site. Generally this will be under the update you have, 5.0, 5.1 etc. Download the entire folder and in there will be a zip. Unzip it, then cmd into that folder (hold shift and right click in windows and select "open command prompt here". Then in the terminal do "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" this should fix that problem. You can also flash a custom recovery such as cwm or twrp this way. I don't think this causes any data loss but backup to just be safe.

    My phone kept playing a random chime like sequence until I ran across a blog that mentioned RFID proximity cards cause this when they come close to this phone. I put my card away from phone and no more random musical chiming.

    I did a quick search and didn't find anything, but today I picked my phone up off a charging mat and the screen was a weird tint. It looks like it is greenish in the middle and then purple for about 1cm on the left and right edge. The purple is more noticeable. The green kind of just looks like a haze. I tried a factory reset and it didn't fix it. When I first tried to just restart it, as it was loading ("Google" launch screen, etc) the screen looked ok, but then before it would finish the problem was back.

    Anyone encounter this before? If so, were you able to fix? I bought my N5 at launch so I'm well past any warranty period.

    Thanks

    Interesting the referred article states this happens within 2 or 3 minutes. However, I let mine stay on for 10 minutes before I turned it off myself. Which was long enough to eat up 4% of battery. So I guess just some devices are having this issue, I am running 5.1. Have you tried clearing the cache and data for the camera App? Perhaps a re-boot.

    It should power off. You need to press the power button as long as it takes to power off, even if that's 30 to 60 seconds or more. Sounds like a problem stemming from the lollipop update. Good luck.
