    My phone gets to boot menu and then crashes to the white Google logo. When charging red light blinks, but otherwise it shows nothing.

    Would replacing the battery help?

    Hi !

    Thanks a lot for your solution. It works, but there is a 2nd problem that I don't know if you have come across.

    After bringing it back to 'charging', it's been charging for 40min now, but it is still only 1% charged! It was turned off when it was first retrieved and charging, then I turned it on for viewing how much it has charged. It normally takes 20-30min to be 20% charged, fairly efficient. But now, it is still 1% charged, which simply means not charging. I can imagine it will die straight the way once I unplugged it.

    Have you / any of you experience this? Does it mean the battery is dead?

    Thanks so much for this.
    I just managed to restart my phone by following the instructions you posted.
    FYI, you can keep the phone on charge even before you press the power and vol down keys.

    Thanks again,

    When I woke this morning, my N7 was working and showing full battery. About an hour later I noticed it was powered off. Pressing the power button the Google logo appears and then the four dancing circles do their thing. But it will go no further. I have tried all the combinations I can find and nothing changes it. Phone is not rooted and in service for just 8 days.

    Any ideas? Any updates being pushed on Sprint?

    After I talked to my mom over the phone she noticed that her N4 was shut down. She has tried to turn it on and nothing happened. I was looking at all of the comments and I have tried everything. Her phone was not short of battery or anything, but a week ago her N4's sound system did not work. We have no idea if there is a relation between that and the phone not turning on. Please is there anyone who can help? We would be so grateful! :-)

    I tried every solution in this thread and I still couldn't get my device to turn on. I couldn't even get the led to blink. I called the Play store to get help and they pretty much told me the same thing in this thread and to try charging it for 24 hours. My warranty was up so I couldn't get it replaced. I finally was able to get my phone to turn on by opening it up and disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. Just wanted to put this out here in case anybody was in the same boat as me.

    Thank you so much for this post. I was already planning to bring my phone to the bestbuy outlet to have it check. I was searching on my Nexus about recipes and put it on the table coz I need to do something when I came back and press the power botton it wont turn on just blank screen. I never drop it, so I was so worried. I try to search some info about nexus 4 and I came across your post..I tried your advice and after a few seconds my phone came to life......Thank you, thank you so much.

    Hi Scott , thanks for the procedure ... i tried as suggested by you and other folks ... alas ! i was not able to switch on my Phone but landed up with a blown battery ... i ordered for one from ebay and fixed the battery hoping my phone would be fixed ! but the condition is the same ...
    1.i hold power+volume down ...
    2.i get options for start ...
    3.i select start
    4.I get google logo with charging symbol and that is it ... the whole process loops again

    since i opened the case i don't think google would appreciate my warranty ... could you assist me on this ?
