    Default Phone won't turn back on

    Yesterday I was out of town for work and was using my phone a lot. I had a new battery in it and it had drained to about 15-20% by time I got back to my car to charge it. I cut it on and the red exclamation came up on the battery then went into a reboot, though it never came back on. It would not recognize the car charger.

    I had this happen to me a few weeks ago when I got it as a replacement for a broken phone. Again with a new battery. I called to get the replacement but as a last ditch effort, I plugged in the broken phone and it booted right up and was running perfectly since (which was about four days since I had last tried to boot it. I am rooted and running the 8-12 or 8-13 bugless beast.

    I have tried all the tricks submitted in the forums: taking out battery and sim, holding button while plugged into usb as well as wall charger, none of them seem to work. I left the battery out last night. When I plug the phone into the computer, it makes the connected usb device sound and immediately plays the disconnected over and over until it is unplugged. It keeps flashing a new device as the chip of OMAP 4460 (or whatever the number is).

    Any other suggestions?

    It can't turn on at all? It might be dead dead.

    My first Nexus did this and I got a replacement. When my second one did it I found the suggestion of taking out the sim and battery, holding down the power and volume, then putting them both back in and it mysteriously worked then.

    What jamontoast1291 said. I can't believe that worked. I was freaking out!!! Dropped my phone from a countertop and it wouldn't boot back up. no charging light, no response, no anything. Found this post, and it worked!!!

    Thanks a million times.

    -1st things first learn how to use spell check. If English is your second language then keep practicing if it's your first language please take a refresher course in English 101

    -2nd thing have you tried taking the battery out for atleast 10 minutes? Make sure the battery is charged that your using if you have a bad charging port on your phone the battery will not charge. Another thing I have heard is after the battery/sim has been taken out is to hold down the power button and volume down button for atleast 30 seconds to release the residual charge in the phones capictors.
