    Default Re: Nexus 7 problem

    +1 on the loose battery cable. Really didn't want to open it up, but sure enough, when I popped off the back I could see the connector was not seated properly.

    I used a plastic knife to start getting the cover off and then ran a credit card around the edge to carefully unseat all the clips.

    Thanks

    Just got home from school, this issue occurs. The screen stopped flashing with random pixels eventually. My battery was on 90% when this happened, so I was getting worried when I saw people saying that the battery had died. I finally found this thread. Since I thought I had to replace my battery, I found a guide on how to open the back of the device, if that helps.



    I was able to pop off the back using a credit card. This was the problem for me, and I was able to get my tablet working again. The battery is placed incorrectly and has enough room to actually slide around, so I had to use two cough drop wrappers to hold the battery up. I have no doubt that it will come unplugged again.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for posting this! i've had my nexus for 2 months and it just started doing this. After trying the other suggestiong about a hard reset, i came across your post about the static issue, and it turns out the battery connection had come loose. After fixing the connection problem my Nexus lives again! Cheers!

    The problem I'm having is slightly different. charging is no problem. However, when I boot the Nexus up it looks fine except once it gets to the home screen it freezes and restarts the boot up process again and again and again until it runs out of power. I have tried restarting it in safe mode but it just power cycles and returns to standard mode. I have also tried the Recovery Mode but it shows a dead android with an exclamation mark in a red triangle and the words 'No command.' underneath. Has my Nexus mad a major failure or is there something else I can do?!

    Thank you for this, it definitely did the trick. Amazing how an important issue like is the battery hooked up was overlooked, amazing. For others wanting to try taking off the back cover is easy. And if you have any questions as to the layout of the innards (it is pretty clear you will see a black plug with multicolored wires. That is what you want to gently pry out and plug back in). Super easy and my nexus is back in service. Thanks again, honestly loose battery wire, would have been the last thing I thought it would have been!

    same thing happens to my tablet, although when it turns back on the date and time are all fudged up.

    Cheers my friend mine also crapped out, but following your steps I have now got it back to the battery icon and it's hopefully charging and going to behave itself.

    2/. Used my HTC Phone charger...check voltage AND polarity...little symbol on charger ..must be same......worked...started charging

    Hope this helps someone...

    This is what you should do if you are experiencing this problem. I believe others have already posted this as well.

    1. Plug your Nexus into a charger. IMMEDIATELY after you plug it in, hold down the "volume down" button and the power button at the same time. If this doens't work, release them and press and hold again. Try unplugging and replugging, or with different chargers, so you can get the timing correct.
    2. You will reach a screen that has a little android guy on it. Press the volume down button to select "power off", and use the power button to select this option. Your device will power down.
    3. Unplug your device. When you plug it back in, a charging icon should appear.

    If this does not happen, then you might have a loose battery cable. Watch this video on how to remove the back cover (it is pretty simple, and will not do significant damage your device)



    Once inside the device, Unplug and replug your battery connection. Make sure it is very secure and feels solid.

    If this does not make your device turn on correctly, send it back to Asus. If you purchased the device within the past 12 months, your warranty will cover it.

    Hey guys so something similar happened to me. My device today wouldnt turn on so i figured it was out of charge. I charged it for a few hours and as it was plugged in I pressed the power button to see the progress of the charge, however the batter icon didnt show up. Instead I got this dim lit dark screen with a static pixels on the screen, some white pixels some rainbow colored. When I disconnect the charger the pixels go away and the screen goes completely dark as if the device is off. Other than that the device wont turn on, and a hard reset hasnt worked. I tried everything. No logos, nothing shows up on the screen. I called asus and they said that it might be the video card and it's probably shot. They offered me a $199 tech support plan to fix it and that this sort of thing is probably not a manufacturer issue and isnt coverend under warranty, my device is in minttttt condition and only 6 months old. Any ideas what the deal is? I'll include a pic of the screen so you can see the pixels, they look like scratches in the pics but they are the static pixels.

    Just encountered this problem. Haven't taken off the back but I did use the boot loader and it is charging now. Thank you so much


    EDIT: BTW Asus' Tech support is Bull****. They wanted me to pay $350 for a services plan to get this exact same information. assholes.

    I actually had an issue where my battery was at 0 percent and charging, but it wouldn't go any higher. Rebooted a few times and it fixed eventually

    Regarding my last post: My Nexus has fully charged, I have no more flying pixels, but I cannot get past the Nexus logo. It will do the logo animation for hours and will only stop when I use the bootloader to shut it off. Help?

    Another one with this issue...
    Tried the bootloader sequence and even opened my Nexus to check the battery plug, still cant continue from the Google logo
    It keeps blinking on and off
    Although my battery indicator says its charged.

    Any clues, on whats happening?

    Thanks!

    Brand new Asus Nexus 7. Wouldn't power on out of the box. Black screen with flying pixels. Add me to the loose battery connector club. Thanks to all who posted here!

    Rather extreme!

    Had my Nexus 7 for 6 months. First 4 months great and then the problems started. Was having so many problems - all of the above mentioned and more - that was on verge of sending it back.

    Was walking down the street with the tablet in my backpack. It was so tightly packed that the zips unzipped and to my horror the tablet flew out and landed hard on the pavement even flying out of it's hard cover. I thought it was game over.

    Tried to turn it on expecting the worst. To my total amazement it has somehow reset itself and it works exactly as it did when i first got it - no more freezing, inability to turn on, battery symbol saying on empty when it is fully charged, turning itself off etc etc.

    I'm not for one minute suggesting you should throw your tablet across the street! Like i said - extreme but it works and that's all that matters!

    Thumbs up Re: Nexus 7 problem; Won't charge, and when it does, screen goes dead and pixels fly across the scre

    Thank you so much! My Son let his nexus 7 die completely and it wouldn't charge. I tried the solution Power + Volume down and it didn't work. I found this post and tried the Power + Vol Up +Vol Dwn and it work perfectly! I'm in the IT industry so my children think I can fix everything computer related... You helped me keep my reputation! :-) Thank you for saving my "rep" and me the money of buying my son a New Tablet for his birthday!

    Signed up because of this same issue. Everything sounds the same (trouble shooting, back story etc)

    1. N7 discharged to 0%
    2. Was charging with wrong charger, so I switched to original
    3. Charged 3 days, still no joy
    4. Googled fixes
    5. Took back cover off, unplugged and replugged battery
    6. Shut down using the root menu (power+volume down, scroll to Power Off)
    7. Charged over night. Turned it on and the battery was up to 44%, but would not charge any further. In fact, it discharges while powered on and plugged in. Let it sit in the office last night, over night, powered down from root menu, and now it reads 33%.

    I'm pretty frustrated at this point...... None of these fixes seem to be working for me....

    Edited to add: Just took unit apart again, unplugged cable, replugged and plugged the charger back in. I'm going to power it up in root menu and leave it like that over night and see what happens.
