Screen Flickering/Interfering/Mirroring?
« on: January 21, 2015, 07:10:21 PM »
Hi Guys
So I just bought myself a 2013 Nexus 7 32GB WiFi, and I'm having some issues with the screen.
For no reason it will just start flickering on the bottom half (see the attached video to see exactly what i mean).
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/YahZKKFY7ys&fs=1" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/YahZKKFY7ys&fs=1</a>
If i turn the tablet on and off again it just comes straight back.
Has anybody seen this before and has any tips on what to do about it that'd be a great help!
Thanks,
Dan

Try a factory reset, if that fails, return for a replacement, since you just bought it.

I have tried a factory reset and it still appears to be the same, guess I'm taking it back!

The embedded link doesn't work for me. If this happens only while charging it could be dirty power from the charger or a bad USB cord. Otherwise, return it.

In lollypop, swipe down from the top with two fingers, or twice with one. Tap the gear icon up top. Scroll down to backup and reset.

I'll try it! Should I reintent install again the OS 5.0.2 or leave it in the old one?

I'd do a reset without backup and restore. Then add programs one at a time to see what is churning up resources. You could try uninstalling Facebook first, it seems a likely culprit. Oh, do you have google play set to auto update? That can tie things up as well.

Thanks! I'll try that options, but I think that the actualization of the android OS mess up everything, It was OK before, but yes it had the automatic actualization of almost all app, thank you!
