    Damn, I was scared so hard when i switched it off just to check its switch on-time, and it didn't go on anymore... I tried everything and just when I read about the "30 seconds"-solution over here it was on. So just having some patience would help a lot it seems.

    Hello, I am new to this forum, well, because my Nexus 7 16gb purchased online from Sam's Club has 2 issues: 1] sometimes it will not turn on; and 2] the battery indicator shows about 3 hrs of time left when it is charged at 100%. Sam's Club replaced the original one I purchased with this one that is also problematic.

    Xterra, can you give me the Google phone number you used to get a replacement? Thank you in advance.

    Anyone, can you explain what function is performed when holding down the various button combinations? I'm guessing it is some type of reboot, but details on which button or buttons would be appreciated. Thanks again.

    Edited: I now believe the battery time displayed is a history and not an indication of remaining battery life. Is there a function that displays remaining battery life in hrs and min?
    Edited again: I saw a post where someone recommended Battery Widget? Reborn! Pro. I downloaded it from the PlayStore and it is helpful. I also found a post that explained holding down the power and down volume buttons together launches a 'soft reboot'.

    That's what a manufacturer would say, would be my guess. They would rather replace it than have it known as an issue. Too bad we can't get government recalls on these like we get with our Toyotas.

    i wonder why it's doing that all of a sudden. i thought i killed my Nexus 7, but then i thought "hey what if i hold the Power button long enough?" and it did the trick. Still annoying, when i know i was holding the button for about 3 seconds before, and now i have to hold it for like 15 seconds.

    Is there a fix for that? apart of "returning it" i mean.

    edit: now that's weird, when i enable "Debugging" (in developer options). It boot up fine after holding it for 3-4 seconds.

    Thank you for the tip, I'm not the gentleman that posted the first question but I had the same problem this morning when I tried to turn on my Nexus 7.

    Yes, yes. Everyone needs to remember that Nexus 7's are like boats. They're all "shes". If you can't turn on your girl, you just need to hold her tight, for a little longer.

    Works with my wife too!

    Try holding the power button for about 100 seconds until it boots up.

    Hi all,
    I am new to this site. I have read all the posts and I have tried holding the power for 30 seconds, doesn't work. I tried the power and vol down buttons and I get the soft bootloader which tells me I am locked. I have tried the start, recovery mode and shut down but none are working. I have just installed the 4.2 update and it worked for a brief time, but while I was watching a video the screen went black and would not restart. I plugged the device into my pc and it showed that the nexus 7 had 0 objects. I have sent an email to ASUS technical but am waiting to hear back if my tablet is toast or not. Any other ideas I can try?

    For those of you that this may help, I received a reply from ASUS Tech support with the following instructions: (btw, they didn't work for me as all i get is the fastload menu, in locked state)
    Unplug the power cord and shut the unit off.

    2. Press and hold the VOL DOWN and then POWER button at the same time for at least 10-12 seconds until after the start-up screen appears and is joined by some small print at the top of the screen, then let them both go. If the TF booted the way it always does, you have not accomplished the task, try again until you have seen 2 icons (ICS), 4 icons (JB) in the screen.

    3. After a few seconds you should see some icons in the middle of the screen - in ICS they are called "Wipe Data" and "Android". The right "Android" will have a green highlight fading in and out. In JB there are four, the first of which is RCK.

    4. Press the VOL DOWN button to select the "Wipe Data" icon then VOL UP to confirm it.

    5. The system should then Factory Reset as in the "settings" process (method 1). Go through the new install process, adding your account/s & wifi details.

    I hope this helps someone else. Thanks!
