My LG Nexus5X has randomly died this morning(it had ~70% battery). I have tried to leave it on charging for 1 hour straight and then tried to turn it back on. It worked. But then it randomly died again while being fully charged. It hasn't turned on ever since.
After shutting down for the second time I have also managed to enter the
Fastboot menu (clicking Power Button+Volume Down button), although I get the menu to show and I can scroll through the options, when I click
Recovery mode or
Start, I get a screen with just saying
'Google' on it and then dies again. For Start my understanding is that it should turn on and as for the Recovery Mode this is not a normal behaviour as I should be seeing an Android Robot as described here. I also tried the
Power Off option, left it there for an hour charging and then tried to turn it back on, this time it went past the
'Google' page to the
colorful spinning/loading circles page but the animation stuck and it turned off again.
After the above failure, my goal was to enter the Recovery Mode through my PC(I use Windows10): I have attempted to set up the drivers for
fastboot like described in this guide. The only time I get my Android to show up in the Device Manager so I could setup the drivers is when the phone itself is in the fastboot mode and it shows up as
Kedacom USB Device->Android Bootloader Interface. Since I could not see my Android under
Other Devices like the guide says I tried to setup
adb/fastboot one at a time for the
Kedacom USB Device->Android Bootloader Interface entry. In the command line when I type
adb devices my device is not showing up
fastboot devices this shows up:
0167ca36eedbc1ef fastboot. Also, when I type
adb reboot recovery I get
error: no devices/emulators found .
I have ran out of options and everything I tried does not seem to work. What is the solution to bring my Nexus5X back to life?
