    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. Voil!

    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.
