When plugged in, it kept repeating the Google logo, shutting off, and repeating. I unplugged, and now it won't turn on at all, no matter what combination of power and volume buttons I try (even recovery mode-- trust me, I've tried it all). I've been running Lollipop for over a week now with no hitches, and this came out of nowhere. Any suggestions to get me out of this?

  • Check the battery connection to make sure it's secure. Movement and jostling can sometimes can loosen the connection.

  • My nexus 7 did the same thing 2 days ago. I opened the case and the connection was partially separated. Plugged it back correctly and bootloop is gone. Working perfect now.

It's probably soft-bricked. Use a program called Nexus Root Toolkit to reinstall the stock ROM: http://www.wugfresh.com/nrt/
