Why won't my nexus 4 turn on?
Hello, I just bought a used Nexus 4, apparently just had a dead battery. Put in a new battery that came with the Nexus and charged it for over 2 hours, nothing turns on. Tried the hold volume up + power for 60 sec, and also hold volume down + power for 90 sec, neither worked. I opened the Nexus 4 up and saw that the charging port was missing the gold foil.
Would that be the problem? Or should I just buy another battery and see if that works? I can't tell if the battery is getting charged or not, but the phone is slightly warm after a few hours.
Got a new charging port, it didn't come with the gold foil I mentioned. Put it in anyway, and now I get a solid green notification light, so at least I got some progress. I'm trying a bunch of different things, looked online and read a bunch of forum posts about red blinking lights or red solids, but very, very few solid greens. Anyone have any experience with that?
Got a new battery, replaced it, and it works just fine! Not sure if it was the combination of replacing the charging port and the battery or simply the battery itself. Glad it works though.
