Nexus 7 help - screen flickers
« on: January 24, 2013, 05:51:29 PM »
Hi, bought a nexus7 about a week ago and everything was fine at first - didn't use it for a day or two..and had left it on my desk unpligged-as such it ran down..plugged the charger in and it was giving white lines up and down the display

i left it for 3-4hours and it eventually turned on..my question is now..my nexus is now currently plugged into the charger and the screen backlight is flashing on and off..will it still be charging>!?

Go ahead and seek a replacement, since with a week old tablet, you should be in a replacement window. You risk exhausting your replacement window by waiting too long trying for a solution.

I had this happen once when my battery ran all the way down. I plugged it into my computer USB and let it charge for a little bit, held the power button down and it started right up.
Like Prime said don't hold on to it too long if still having problems cause it will be harder to get replaced.

Try the app Screen Filter. When mine flickers I just adjust it there and it goes away. I use either 90% or 75% unless the lignts are off then more like 25%. This is all with stock brightness at lowest setting.
