Tablet shut off one night and wouldnt turn on with button. Screen came on and said charging when I plugged it in though. I sent it in for RMA and they wanted to replace almost everything inside. I saw on the checklist they wanted to replace the power button. So i figured 10 bucks to try and see if that works and it worked!
Took apart the tablet. Super easy. Put the new button in and it turned on right away. The Volume down doesnt work but im not sure if it came like that or another reason. Im just happy it turned back on! 10 bucks for a power button vs 269 is what asus wanted to replace almost everything.
Don't fall for RMA right away do a little research first! the fix might be easier than you think.
2nd Gen Nexus 7 2013 touchscreen did not work
After viewing videos and your tear down info, I replaced both motherboard and port charger board. Hooray! Works like new! Took about 2 hours of viewing videos and work.
Watch out when you take out the connectors. I damaged them on both boards.
The device was stuck at google logo start screen and kept restarting until the battery was totally dead.
Since I can just hold the volume down button to go to debug menu, I suspect that the power button is stuck, I cracked it open and checked to see that the button seemed to be fine, so I bought exchange power volume module for replacement. Crack the back open, carefully remove the original one (some back glue) and put it the new one. Problem fixed!
The Nexus 7 2013`s back plate is super easy to crack open, just use your fingernail and not anything too sharp to damage the plastic. Bed careful when removing the pin connector for the power volume module, use a tweezer and be gentle, don`t force anything.
Seems like the Nexus 7 power button has a reputation of wearing out after normal use. I wasn't able to turn my Nexus 7 off and on using the power button.
The repair was rather easy. Pry open the back cover, remove the battery, find the power/volume strip, remove it and attach the new one using adhesive (I used a drop of krazy glue).
Not much advice needed. If lost, plenty of videos on YouTube that can guide you. It's been my experience that some Nexus 7 backcovers are easier to remove than others.
