Customer Question

My NExus 7 will not take a charge and I have been advised that there appears to be something loose inside. I need to send it back to be looked at - where would you suggest?

Hello! My name is Thomas and I'm happy to help!

1. Make sure there isn't lint or other foreign objects in the port, which can cause the cable to feel lose, as described in THIS VIDEO. I would try and use canned air to dislodge any foreign material.

2. Connect the charger and hold down the power for 30 seconds. This can sometimes 'force' the device to boot and clear up any battery lock ups.

If this isn't the case, please reply with the approximate day of purchase.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.

I have done as you suggested. Is there any light that should come on when it is charging or any way of telling that it is.


My husband purchased the NEXUS for me for my birthday in April, but we cannot trace where he got it from. It was certainly new and cost approx £245

Expert:  Thomas replied 11 months ago.
Zee,

The warranty on the device would have been expired. Still, contact Google at 1-855-836-3987 and ask about repair services or trading your Nexus for a discount towards a new one.

I would go straight to Google for help before consulting third party repair services.

Thank you for your advice. You will appreciate that it does not solve the problem, so although I am willing to pay a fee, I feel £22 is too much. What do you suggest?

Web sites like Justanswer/legal...leave nothing to chance.

As-a-doc Web sites: if you've got a quick question, you can try to get an answer from sites that say they have various specialists on hand to give quick answers....JustAnswer.
JustAnswer... Has seen a spike since October in legal questions from readers about layoffs, unemployment and severance.
Mr Pole-Carew contacted Value and was told that the £820 taken was the company’s ‘estimate’ of the cost to repair the clutch. He said he had contacted a Ford adviser on JustAnswer who told him ‘a perfectly good clutch is highly unlikely to fail from four to five hours of good, or even very bad, driving'.
