Won't turn on but says fully charged.

So my tablet died one night while using. I plugged it in over night and charged it. The next morning the battery icon indicated it was charged so i unplugged it. The tablet never turned on and when i plugged it back in the icon never showed up. I sent it in for RMA and they said now there is water damage. SERIOUSLY! they wanted 265$ to repair it i mean come on. SO they sent it back not repaired. When i got it back i plugged the tablet in and the battery icon came on and said charging?!? So now my battery is fully charged but i still cannot get it to turn on.. I have tried power button and volume with power for 1 min each time plugged in and not plugged in and still nothing. it just seems wierd that the screen still works and they battery says its charged but it wont turn on. so i dont know what to do!

Hi, Cored. My mom's nexus just crapped out like yours. I tried literally everything to get it to work, but nothing seemed to be working. Then, here's what I did:

I let it sit on top of our tea canister, plugged into the wall socket with the Nexus power adapter. I let it sit there for about an hour (maybe 5 or six minutes over-- I wasn't timing it). Then I held the power button and the volume button closest to the power button down for 30 seconds. The Google logo appeared on the screen, then a little green android icon replaced it. There was a red ! icon above the Android's abdomen and the chest panel was popped off...anyway, I digress. I held the power button and volume button down for a few more seconds and a little menu popped up. Some people on the internet said to clear the cache, whatever, at this stage. I just hit the reboot option (you scroll options with the volume keys and select with the power button). A few seconds later, the Nexus came back on as normal. Hope that helped!
