    Won't turn on or charge.

    My Galaxy Nexus GSM (Australia on Optus) won't turn on at all. I haven't had this problem before and i've had the phone for 3 months, so it's obviously something that i've done. The only thing I can remember doing which may have made my phone screw up is when I last went in to Bootloader, using Clockwork Recovery I mounted "system" on to my device. I can't even get in to bootloader, so I'm out of ideas. I will make a checklist of things I have tried underneath this text.
    • Pulled Battery out for 5 minutes - DOESN'T WORK
    • Tried getting in Bootloader and hold buttons for at least 10 seconds - DOESN'T WORK
    • Tried different power sources (wall, PC) -DOESN'T WORK
    • Charging whilst off - DOESN'T WORK
    Kind regards and thank you for assessing this,
    Meowthekoolkat.

    Does the charging cable give any indication that the phone is charging, if not, have you tried using a different cable or charging source (different USB port or wall outlet)? There have been a lot of reports of the charging port failing, so maybe your battery died and if you can't charge it via the charging port you will not be able to get it to turn on. Do you have access to another battery or an external charger to try to see if this may be your issue.

    Thanks bdnyy23, I've tried different sources but haven't tried a different cable yet. In the next couple of days I will buy a cable to try out

    I do not get any indication of my phone charging at all.
    I'm still very much open to suggestions.

    Kind regards and thanks for the help!

    Try charging it while is off, if it does you will have to take it for service.

    Then calling Samsung is your best option.

    I'm not too sure that will be covered under the warranty as I have messed around with it.

    I have also bought another charger and it turns out that wasn't the issue.
    I think it may still have something to do with how I mounted "system" in Bootloader.

    I can't get in to my phone any way possible, however if any of you know a way to reset my phone without having to actually go in to it, it would be greatly appreciated as I don't think Samsung will cover a phone that has been tampered with, and I can't afford to pay the expense for a new phone.

    Kind regards

    I would definitely try a different battery or an external charger to charge your battery. As I mentioned, there are a lot of issues where the charging system has failed, so if you cannot recharge the battery your phone will not turn on, and if you cannot turn it on I don't think you can make any modifications. Best bet may be to go into a store and tell them you are looking for a battery and that you are having issues, they should let you try the battery which should have a partial charge. If you can get the phone to boot with the new battery then you know what the issue is. You will then have the option of sending back your phone for repair, or getting an external charger. Good luck

    My galaxy nexus was having the same issue. I found this link and it fixed it immediately. Hope this helps:

    Power Button stopped responding. Phone will not turn on. - Samsung Galaxy Nexus - iFixit.


    If you would rather not click the link the instructions go as follows:

    1. take the battery out of your galaxy nexus
    2. connect your galaxy nexus to your computer
    3. when you hear your computer beep or after waiting 5-10 seconds place your battery back into your phone.

    You should now be seeing a picture of a battery on your phone's screen. Try turning it on - it should work now.
