Nexus5 stuck at start
I went to start my spare nexus 5 the other day. Nothing happened so connected the charger. Keeps booting to Google lock screen buzzes and goes off and repeats. Diconnect from power and nothing, cennect back and same as before. Can briefly get boot loader menu ( power and sound ) up but not long enough to do anything.
Any ideas that work, think is power related but cant get past this. Leaving on charge does nothingcharge. Its on15.04.
@lakotaubp you can try to hold the power button around 20 seconds and see if that fixes the problem.
If that doesn't work, Nexus 5 has a notorious power button because it's pretty crappy, so probably it's stuck or making a bad contact. Try to (gently but firmly) bang the power button on something. Yep, I'm not kidding [*], I swear it works.
Of course you can open the phone and clean the power button too, but the bang method is proven.
@advocatux Thanks will give it a bash later. How's your head today.
@lakotaubp still on my shoulders... I think... but I can't really confirm that :D
Thank you for asking!
@advocatux It's had a couple of bashes but not working yet, but showing signs. Will have another look soon, does look like power button issue though.
@lakotaubp good luck !!
