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.

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.

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.

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.
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!

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 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.

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.

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?

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.

Have to wait and see if the new battery does anything.
« on: June 25, 2014, 11:18:57 AM »
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.

I still don't have a tablet, but I do have a plan. Techies at BestBuy checked battery and declared it DEAD, though they suspect maybe something more. Have ordered a new ASUS battery for $50. from an outfit that will give full refund, no restocking fee, if it doesn't solve the problem. Plan B. is to pick-up a new Gen. 1 Nexus 7 for $170.00. Makes more sense than ASUS offer of $100 to $200 (plus?) to repair. Either way I guess I'll be giving the "7" another chance and ask forgiveness of both the whales and the loyal followers of the Nexus 7.

Yeah, I may have been a bit harsh and too unkind to the whales. ;-)
The "7" was great while it was working. Guess I've just been spoiled by great service from any number of vendors and manufacturers. I may mellow with time, but at the moment the options of a $200 repair bill or buying a new machine every 18 months don't seem acceptable.
I do sure appreciate all of the time, expertise and kindness that Forum members have shown me though. Who knows, I may be back?
