    Thanks a lot. This is the best help I could have got. I was almost taking my phone to the Warranty Center.

    First, Thank you a milion times.

    I registered so I could reply.

    I have not read all 10 pages of comments, but once I read the first few posts, I was quite scared that I had lost all my souvenirs in that phone because after doing the procedures, the red led was solid red, and nothing would happen.

    Was my phone bricked or dead?

    So I re-read the suggestions and I made sure to do 3 things that I was not doing :

    1: I made sure to hold power+volume down for 15 seconds BEFORE putting the charger in.

    2 : Instead of connecting the phone to an external power outlet (extension), I plugged it right in the wall.

    3 : I found my original USB cable, that I plugged into a different wall charger adaptor.

    I'm not sure which of these made a difference, but after applying those three, then the charger plugged in WHILE HOLDING down the buttons, it took a few seconds (5 or so) and the red light, blinking this time, changed into the Android screen!!

    Thanks so much !!! It works again !!!

    Thanks so much! It worked! Although my phone does this a lot. Have had it for about 2 years now. I was seriously considering getting a new phone... but I guess I can hold off for some more time while still having a phone that works!
    Thanks again!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!! My Nexus 7 was low on power so I plugged it in to charge. When I got home I found there had between a power outage & my tablet wouldn't respond. I tried other chargers & outlets w/no luck & finally Googled the problem on my phone. I found this page. Wasn't sure it'd work since this was for Nexus phones, but tried it anyway. It's back up & charging normally. Thanks again! I was so afraid it was bricked (& out of warranty, of course).

    I have read on the forum that I can get my nexus 4 to work again....but I have tried a few times now, still in vain. My mobile will go back to the 'swirling colourful balls' mode after rebooting - I cannot do anything further up to this step, except to switch the mobile off again, before I try (again). This is now like the 8th or more times ....doing it and still same thing!
    Can anyone please guide me from here or share some tips?! Thank You!!

    Thank you sooooo much.
    I had this problem months ago when I was visiting my son in Chicago. The battery was completely empty and wouldn't charge. I was sure I had to buy a new phone, but my son found your post and solved my problem. Then today it happened again, with my phone fully charged this time. I live alone, and my phone is my connection with everybody. I felt so lost... I remembered what my son had told me and tried, but nothing happened. I was desperate. Then I went on the internet and read your post, removed the case and tried again. That did it!
    Thanks, thanks, thanks, Anna Maria in Colorado

    Thanks for this thread, I was finally able to get my phone charged after a couple dozen tries.

    I had no luck at all with the volume down+power trick, unfortunately, because it wouldn't charge. Eventually, after (IIRC) doing the volume up and power to have it turn on, I plugged in the cable and I finally got the charging icon!! A couple hours later, and it is back to 100%. Sorry I wish I could remember exactly what I did to make it finally start charging.

    My Nexus 4 has the same red light issue.
    Tried the button pressing technique the boot menu opened. But suddenly it popped up that restart booter. Than the google sign came on and the phone switched off. Tried taking out the battery and inserting it again. Still did not work.

    I just went through the process. It did work, but not without some extra steps.

    - After holding power + vol down, I had to wait for a number (5 or 6 ) blinking pattern to stop before the bootloader menu appeared.
    The pattern goes like this :

    1) 11 regular, slow blinks
    2) fast on-off-on
    3) a long off

    After the bootloader appeared, I did "START" immediately, the phone showed a google logo for few seconds, shut off and started blinking again.

    I repeated the whole sequence. That time, the cycle happened only once and I was back to the bootloader menu.
    I left the phone in boot menu screen for 1/2 hour, and then the START finally worked.

    Maybe this can help some people for who the method doesn't work immediately.

    I forgot to specify that the power + vol down must be be help during the pattern cycles, otherwise they stop and the process needs to be restarted.

    You should read my post just a little below your post in the thread. I had the same issue. I let the phone stay in boot menu for some time to allow the battery to recharge before hitting the START button.

    I also got a blinking red light. If you try again and hold the power button and volume button even after it flashes the android guy should eventually show up. It did for me anyway.
