HELP! Dropped my Nexus
« on: February 26, 2013, 07:12:08 PM »
I dropped my Nexus and now it won't turn on.  What can I do?  Is it dead?

Did you really drop it or was Android frustrating you so much you through it?

Joking... :-X

Did you insure it? I would pop the back off and see if the battery is disconnected...

No, I didn't get the extra insurance.  I've never needed it in the past.  I just dropped it from waist level, onto the kitchen floor.  I'm afraid to take the back off.  I've had it for less than a month.  I should've sold it to the guy who offered me $150 the other day and just taken the loss.

OMG, I fixed it!  I carefully pried the back off, and checked the battery connection.  It HAD comes lose, so I plugged it back in.  Ta-da!

It never would've occurred to me to check the battery connection. Thanks for the suggestion.

Glad you go it working. 

It's weird how we all think differently.  I would have automatically opened the back and checked the connections and it probably wouldn't occur to me to post on a forum about it!

Normally I wouldn't either.  It has never occurred to me to open the back of my iPad.  But, I was desperate and it came off quite easily.  The battery connector thingie was loose, so I pushed it back in and the N7 fired right back up. 

It was a little scary, though.
