    Default My Nexus 5 is Dead

    Was on a call and the call just cut out. The display was hung up on the dialer screen. I powered it off to unlock things, now it won't power up!!! ARGHHHHH!!!!!! Battery was at 20% at the time. Its been on the charger since. No Charging Battery Display. No reponse of any kind from any buttons. ARGHHHHHHH!!!! Anyone else see this, or have it happen to them?

    Stock KitKat. Google supports wants it to charge overnight. After 4hrs on the MicroUSB charger, nothing. I got a feeling an RMA is in my future. I have reverted back to my Nexus4. Not bad device wise, I just hate that I am losing data from my Nexus 5.

    Google issued an RMA this morning, and a new phone has been ordered. As long as I return the dead one, the charges for the new phone won't hit the credit card.

    If it's dead, they can't check it

    I believe holding the 'power' button and the 'volume up' button down simultaneously for an few seconds performs a hard reset, for future reference.

    I just received my second unit today. My phone suddenly went from working condition, to a screen full of colored vertical/horizontal lines. No physical damage whatsoever, but I'm still perplexed by the cause. I haven't seen anyone else with this same issue, so I can't determine what did it. I have a suspicion that maybe the wireless charger is a contender. My phone would go up to at least 100 degrees most of the time, which shouldn't be good.

    Kudos to Google support. RMA was authorized and a new phone was ordered on 12/3. New phone arrived today, 12/5. Not bad turn around at all!!!

    Mine just died, I was making a call and beaming some music at the same time, i moved it from my ear (as it went to voicemail) and that was that the screen wouldn't come back on, i do get a screen full of coloure dots when I persist in pressing the power button down to (rebopot?) it. I can locate it with android device manager and I can make it ring but the screen is as dead as a dodo.
