My Nexus 7 won’t turn on
This is more of a Pro Tip than a complaint post, some of the most read articles on Halfninja are purely based on something f’ed up happening to me or some problem I’ve had that other people have too. You’d be surprised how many people google particular issues just to know that they are not alone.
If you own a Nexus tablet and that son-of-a-bitch will not turn on, and you’ve plugged it in to charge, and it still won’t turn on, and you know it was working, and you know it’s brand new, and you know it’s charged, and it just won’t turn on.
HOLD THE POWER BUTTON DOWN. Just hold it down, not for 2 seconds or 5, or 10, hold that sumbitch down for 30-60 seconds. It will boot up, but it is ridiculously slow at turning on sometimes. Like call tech support slow.
So if you experience this problem, hold the power button down for as long as you can manage. If you hold it down for more than 4 hours, seek medical advice.
