Nexus 7 Help / Authentication Problem?
« on: July 19, 2017, 01:16:14 PM »
Until last week my 2nd Gen. Nexus 7 has been running well.
Unable now to get past "Select Wi-Fi network"
Screen shows my Router name which continues to hum along nicely with two different Mac laptops and 2 smart phones.
With the Nexus I now get "Saved, then "authenticating, and finally "authentication problem.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Rabbit

Carl,
Sorry I missed you question back in May.  Problem somehow
"self corrected", i.e.  not sure what I did but it's been fine until just recently.  Hope yours is running well now.

New Nexus 7 General Discussion Topics (2nd Gen) / Accessing YouTube
« on: December 28, 2016, 02:44:17 PM »
When I try to open YouTube I now get a "Problem with network" message.  Before a week or so ago, access has been no problem for the past couple of years.
I can still reach YouTube on my Android cell phone as well as on my MacBook Air, so my home router seems to fine.
Also, everything else on my Tablet seems to be fine; i.e.  email, searches, etc. etc.  Wondering if perhaps re-installing YouTube might be the answer but I don't how to go about that.
Any help?
Thanks,
Rabbit

Seems like my battery is getting "tired" but I hesitate to order a new one if I'm just "mis-remembering" the good ol' days.
Currenty at 24% capacity.  Says it should be fully charged in 5 hours.  Is this normal?  Seems awfully long.  Also seems to run down pretty fast, but I'll be doing some tests to attach some numbers to that issue.
What do you think?
And if I opt for a new battery; any suggestions on best source?  Places to avoid, etc.
Thanks,
Rob ;D

New Nexus 7 Help (2nd Gen) / USB-C and Nexus 7k
« on: April 07, 2016, 12:49:13 PM »
My Nexus 7 battery runs down fairly fast (normally a couple of hours of constant use) and takes forever to fully charge.
Wondering if a USB-C cable might help, or is my battery just telling me it's near life's end?
Have read some horror stories about USB-C's and don't want to risk killing my machine.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Rob

Nexus 7 Help / Re: Battery Life Indicator
« on: August 21, 2015, 01:37:24 PM »
Seemed to work for short period of time after charging even though battery life indicator showed 0%.
Decided to try a new battery, which arrived today.
Problem solved.
New battery arrived with 76% charge showing.  Plugged in now and I'm expecting it to climb to 100%.
Sure is nice to find an inexpensive fix.  Gen 1 batteries are cheap enough.  New tablets;  not so much!

Don't think it's the cable, only because it is charging, but will try some others and report back.
Thanks for taking the time to respond!

Nexus 7 Help / Battery Life Indicator
« on: August 10, 2015, 09:52:19 AM »
I have an older (I believe 2nd Gen.) Nexus 7.
Seems to be charging and function fine except that the battery life indicator shows "0" charge even when it's been charging all night and operating fine; i.e. no "you are running low, turn on battery saver, etc."
Is there an easy fix for this, or do I just learn to live with it?
Thanks,
Rabbit

Nexus 7 Help / Re: Deleting Pics and Videos from Gallery
« on: October 10, 2014, 05:29:47 PM »
Thanks to all who responded.  Discovered that pictures were on Picasa as well as the Gallery so I just wiped the Gallery clean and am working from Picasa.  Probably a better way to have done it, but that worked for now.

First thing I tried.  No, long press doesn't do it, but thanks for taking the time to write.

Nexus 7 Help / Deleting Pics and Videos from Gallery
« on: October 09, 2014, 09:37:29 AM »
Asked this question a while back and got one response that addressed the issue IF Kitkat had been installed, which it hasn't.
Still trying to figure out how to delete pics and video's from Gallery on my Gen.1 Nexus 7.
Anyone?

Nexus 7 General Discussion / Deleting From "Photos" and "Gallery"
« on: July 31, 2014, 12:52:24 PM »
I'd like to delete some pictures from my Gallery and Photos but can't figure out how.  Seems like occasionally I'll be able to access a "delete" option, but not usually.
Guessing it's something simple that I'm missing, or do I have to live with things forever once they in my library?
Thanks,
Rob

Nexus 7 Help / Re: Really Dead Nexus 7

End of story.  Tried new battery.  Still nothing.  Screen Surgeons giving full refund on the $50. I shelled out for the battery.  Another $50. for a used mother board that might or might not fix the problem would have brought me up to $100 plus.  Best Buy had a new 2013 version for $160.
Brought that one home.  Thanks all for the advice and attempts to help me solve the problem.  Let me know if you're interested in making me an offer on a "parts Nexus 7".  Battery was definitely toast.  Beyond that, I have no idea why it doesn't work.

"No cigar."
Not recognized.
Have to wait and see if the new battery does anything.

Didn't realize motherboards were only $50.   If battery doesn't do it, I'll try that.  Hadn't, only because I lacked the usb/usb cable to (wait a minute, light just came on.  )  For some reason I let the OTG cable connector get in the way.
Will check that out NOW, and get back to you. 
Thanks for sticking with me.
Rob :D
