    Exclamation Won't turn on and won't charge! [SOLVED]

    Esteemed members of the 2013 Nexus 7 owner's club, greetings!

    I woke up to a bad surprise this morning: my Nexus 7 won't turn on.
    I plugged it in to charge up, I don't think it is doing that either.

    Here's what I've tried so far:
    • Press power button for 15 seconds: Nothing
    • Plug in charger, press power button for 15 seconds: LED flashes 5 times
    • Press power and volume down button for 15 seconds: Nothing
    • Plug in and press power and volume down for 15 seconds: LED flashes 5 times
    • Press power and volume up for 15 seconds: Nothing
    • Plug in and press power and volume up for 15 seconds: depleted battery appears on the screen, but no charging indication


    Any ideas?

    Aaah, the problem went away after I tried this:

    1. Plug in
    2. Press power and volume up until you see the battery icon
    3. Let go and charge for 5 or so minutes
    4. Press power like you would to turn it on normally
    5. Voilà!

    Hi there,

    Having a similar issue. My 2013 N7 has been playing up a few days after I first got it. After picking it up yesterday morning, I took it off charge, and noticed that it said 'Charging', even though it wasn't. I thought nothing of it and continued use per usual. That night, went to charge it again, and it still said charging, but when I plugged it in, it did not recognise that there was a voltage running through it. It still said charging. Now, it is out of battery, and will only flash 5 times when I press the main button. I have tried the above solutions with no avail.

    Any help would be incredibly kind, and I thank you in advance for any ideas. I think it might be time for another trip to ASUS Service centre. Again.

    I had the same issue after the keyboard locked up several times and it wouldn't power up. This finally made it boot. Thanks.

    I replaced the battery of my N7 2013 and charged 2 hours or more.

    1. Plugged in
    2. Hold power and volume up button down more than a min.
    3. I don't see any changes and just 5 times LED blink

    What shall I do?

    This doesn't have a removable battery; how did you replace it?
    Are you sure you bought an OEM battery?
    When you connected the charger did you see the battery graphic showing the current battery level and charging activity?
