Default Nexus 4 does not turn on

Hello,

I got my new Google Nexus 4 today and it does not turn on for the first time.

After pressing the power button, the system does not boot.

Im immediately getting message Power off Shutting down and its shutting down in a couple of seconds.

Tried:

- Rebooting the system by pressing simultaneously volume down + power buttons

- Reset to factory settings

Also, battery has been charged for almost 10 hours, but without any success. Its still at ~50%.

Would like to know is this a hardware failure or software issue.

Thanks.

If you've managed to factory reset and it's still doing it, it's most likely hardware unfortunately.

I'm guessing it won't make a difference, but will it charge when plugged in to the PC?

Thanks for your reply.

No, it doesn't charge when connected to the PC. It shows the battery animation, but it is not charging for real.

Today tried to revive it a dozen times and still nothing; I'll just return the phone.

Does it power on when plugged in? Could be the battery/connection...
