Hi,

I was recording my training video and all of a sudden now when I turn on my Google Nexus 5, it powers on and it quickly shuts down. All I see is the powering off text on the screen and the phone completely shuts down. I have searched online and tried to clear the web cache etc hasn't worked so far.

I have tried Wipe cache partition so far no luck.



Any other ideas?

Thank you.

Peace,
Andrew

I found a fix - the issue was the power button!

Power buttons on the Nexus 5 are a massive cause of failure. I had mine die last year and Google didn't even have replacement warranty stock, they just gave me a full refund.

I bought mine from online..so I am presuming no refund regarding that. I just had to take the back cover and give a little shake. Today, it turned off again! A little annoying actually.

Once it's broken it's broken. It won't magically repair itself.

 

Where did you buy it from? If it's not under warranty you'll need to get it repaired or start shopping for a new phone.

Similar issue here. Ordered 5 power buttons in China. Should be here in a week or two. Happy to share one if it works.

All good - mine seems to work so far! It hasn't shut down as of yet.
