    The tablet in question is a stock, locked, unrooted 2012 Nexus 7.
    On turn on I get "Google" then continuous tiddily winks.
    if I press power, vol up and vol down together, I get to the unlock page and it will open and run normally, except I am unable to turn on wifi. No matter what I do I cannot get wifi to turn on. It says Turning Wi-Fi on And that's it until it goes to sleep.

    If I hold power, vol up, vol down for 10/15 seconds, I get the robot on it's back (No triangle or exclamation mark).
    It tells me: (In red)
    Fastboot Mode
    (In white)
    Product Name - grouper
    Varient - grouper
    HW Version - ER3
    Bootloader Version - N / A
    Serial Number - 015d2109cc401613
    Signing - not defined yet
    (In red) Lock State - Locked

    If I go to Restart Bootloader It returns to the previously described screen (Reclining robot)
    Recovery Mode gives me the reclining robot with a red triangle with an exclamation mark, and in white "No command" under it. after about a minute it goes back to tiddily winks.

    In settings, About tablet, it reports:
    Android Version 4.4
    Kernel Version 3.1.10 - gee1a0b2

    Welcome to Android Central! Check out this guide: http://forums.androidcentral.com/goo...tion-wipe.html. When you see the Android on its back with the No Command message, press and hold the Power button and Volume Up button at the same time, then release. That should bring up the Recovery Menu.

    Ok, tried that. No luck. Someone suggested that if that didn't work to grit my teeth and do a factory reset.
    So I went ahead with the factory reset. It starts the setup wizzard at US English then changes to WiFi setup and hangs there.

    I guess refreshing the ROM is next?

    Should I go back to 4.3 or say "what the hell" and go for 4.4?

    I've seen something about 4.4.1 and 4.4.2 What's up with that.

    Maybe I should just ask Santa for a N-10!

    Hmm, I'm out of ideas. Is this a new tablet, or did you get it used or refurbished?
