I bought my Nexus 7 one or two years ago. It was my first (and only) tablet. The price was right and it was highly rated. I was very excited to get it. For one reason or another I migrated to my Galaxy Note II smartphone which was easier to carry and did everything I used my Nexus 7 for and more (like making phone calls and having 4G). This isn't about which is better though. I liked my Nexus 7, but found I could do with carrying one less device. The only problem (and till now not a big one) was that the power button seemed faulty. I found I had to hold it 5 or 10 seconds (or more) and make two or three tries to get it to power on. This wasn't that much of a problem as I left it on most of the time. It was more of an annoyance, but lately I have left my Nexus off for a month or more at a time. I simply had too many alternatives to get online, my old DroidX2 which I use as a wifi media center and clock radio, my Chromebook for browsing and Netflix, my Note II for on the go FaceBooking, email etc, and my desktop, which I use for serious work and composing. After I left my Nexus of for the last 6 weeks I have found I can't power it on. I've tried several different charging stations which work on my phone and get no reaction. I can't tell whether it is the battery or the power switch, but right now it is dead as a brick. I was hoping to sell it to a friend for $100 bucks which seemed a fair price. Other than the occasional trouble of powering it on I never had a single problem with it. I'm afraid repairs will wipe out and profit I can make from this and may not truly fix the problem.
Any advice on how I should proceed?
