    Default Nexus 7 stuck on dead Android screen

    My Nexus 7 isn't rooted or anything, but after being out for the day and coming back I saw it was on and stuck at the Google screen. After it not doing anything I tried to reset it and I got this dead Android logo. I tried to look up what it means and all of the answers I got were for rooted devices. Does anyone have any suggestions why this happened or how to fix it? Like I said I didn't root it or do anything to it.

    Try holding the power button down for a little while till it reboots.

    That's usually seen when you reboot to the Recovery menu. When you see that screen, press and hold Power, then press the Vol Up button at the same time. If you see the Recovery menu appear (it's in a small system font), use the volume buttons to highlight "reboot system now," and press Power to execute. If your tablet is acting funky, you could try highlighting "wipe cache partition" first, which clears out the system cache partition (only temporary data is erased--no personal data lost).

    When I just hold the power button the Google screen will flash for a second but then go right back to it. It is like it's trying to bypass it but it can't. B. Diddy when I try what you suggested it just goes to the Google screen and stops. I can't pull up the recovery menu. It was acting fine this morning.

    What happens if you press and hold the Power button, even if the Google screen shows up? Usually, if a device is acting up, it will power down if you hold the button down long enough.

    It will go dark for a second and then go right back to the Google screen.

    I was able to get the recovery menu up but even after wiping the cache and factory resetting the data I still can't get past the Google screen.

    It really sounds like somehow you managed to wipe your whole system. Including the stock ROM. Which would mean there's nothing to boot. But I'm not sure how you would have done that.

    How would/could I even do that? The tablet was literally sitting in my hotel room all day. It's the weirdest thing.

    That's what I'm not sure. But you should be able to at least boot into android. And you say it won't even do that right?

    Nope that's all it will let me do unless there are button presses I am not aware of. I am going to call Asus later and see if they can help.

    Sounds like you need a full reinstall of the ROM because it got corrupted somehow :-(
    Try this to install a new rom image?
    Hopefully, Google will give you a better option...smells like a flash write bug somewhere...
