    Hi. It was my bad day. the worst day I ever had in my whole life. In one day, just 2 days ago, and a day before, i charge my lovely nexus 7 to get ready use on the next day. On tomorrow morning, I bring my lovely nexus 7 with me to the school. During the day, I did't use it at all. I swear the battery must be at 100%. After i went home, open its cover, press the power button to use. And guess what, nothing happen. I tried hard reset, already tried push volume+/volume- and the power button for over 60 secs. And nothing happen neither. There are nothing happen on the screen. there are no google logo, or the X logo. Look like the the battery died. How come? I just used it for several months. So, the help in this article would be useless because I can't go to to bootloader. http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...nexus-7-a.html. How can I restore my nexus 7? not possible. It already death for 3 days. Please and please I really want to use it. Are there any other ways to make it turn back on.

    If you haven't already, I would let it charge for at least 30 minutes and try again. The battery will still discharge when not in use and will eventually drain even if turned off, but at a very much slower rate.

    Hmmm. Seems you might have a defective tablet then. You should be under warranty still.

    I have an iPad 3 and it reset itself and deleted all my data. Every manufacturer has a bad product that gets released here and there. You should have a manufacturer warranty with Asus. Try calling Asus and tell them what happened. One time I bricked a Samsung Tab7 by flashing a bad ROM. Even though I was out of warranty, Samsung fixed my tablet at no charge whatsoever. Maybe Asus is as cool as Samsung.

    Any mass produced device can fail, including the iPad.

    Have you tried to connect it to a computer? Does it pick up the device in it's current state?

    Try pressing and holding the power button only. I'm betting if you hold it long enough it will come on.

    So contact Google Play support and let them know your problem. Buying directly from Google is great, because their customer support is genuinely customer-oriented. I mean, their reps don't know crap and the process is inefficient, but they're usually more than willing to you ship a new device.

    Buy directly from Google, and they'll ship you a new device--you can send your old one in as soon as you get the new one.

    Buy from any other source, and ASUS will send you to repair hell. You won't see your device for a month.

    Try pressing and holding the power button for ~20 seconds. My N7 refused to start one time, and this forced it to reset and restart.

    It can't hurt to try right? Like I said, I completely bricked mine and void the warranty and Samsung still fixed mine at no charge. Just call them.

    Send it for warranty repair. If it's as dead as it sounds, they can't tell if it was rooted. Sounds more like a hardware failure, so changes to the software shouldn't void the warranty anyway.

    I had a problem with my Asus Transformer and it did take a bit to find the stupid support line for Asus they did send me a brand new one. They will never know you rooted the device if it won't turn on.

    Since you bought it on the play store, I would try to contact google first.

    Just checking because sometimes even though the power doesn't come on, it can still boot into recovery (usually when there's a software issue causing it to not power on). Sucks because if you can't boot into recovery, it's likely dead and it's probably going to be a hardware fault.

    ok. i have decided. if it possible, i would send my nexus 7 to asus to get fixed or get the replacement. But I never return products that i bought online before. How do I send for them the nexus 7? since I cant go to the office post. are there anyway for me to send it?
