View Full Version : Nexus S Won't Turn On

09-07-2012, 02:44 AM
I updated to Jelly Bean 4.1 a few weeks ago. The phone was a little laggy, there was a lot of stuff on there and the battery was draining quickly. After doing a search on the internet, lots of people suggested I do a hard reset. I did a soft reset first. Then when that was done, I rebooted the phone to do a hard reset, but didn't press the right key combination, so the phone booted as normal. I decided I didn't want to wait for it to load up, so I took the battery out to restart. When I put it back in, the phone wouldn't turn on. I tried my second battery, I tried charging it, I tried taking it out and waiting a few hours, nothing would work. After leaving the battery in the phone for a couple hours, I noticed the phone was getting pretty hot and it still wouldn't trun on. What is up with that, anyone has any ideas?

If you know how to boot into recovery, do that. Scroll down to "wipe data/factory reset" and press power button. I had this problem once on my Nexus One, worked like a charm.

Well, if it's moisture, the forum can't really help you much. I suggest upgrading to a newer nexus or buy a nexus one from Ebay (really cheap).
