[Fixed] Tablet constantly reboots, even after factory reset
I recently got a Nexus 7 2nd gen to repair and it is constantly rebooting and the power button wasn't working. I changed the power and volume buttons strip, and now the button does work, but the tablet still reboots. Here is the troubleshooting I did so far:
- Looked for any damage or dirt on the motherboard (there isn't)
- Unplugged and plugged back the battery
- Tried a factory reset via unlocking
- Re-flashed the boot loader
The tablet reboots about every 8 seconds, so it looks like the power button is stuck, but physically, it isn't. If I press repeatedly on the button, the tablet boots all the way to Android. If I stop, the tablet reboots after 8 seconds.
I need to know if I'm missing something before looking for a replacement motherboard.
Thank you in advance
EDIT: I finally went and bought a replacement motherboard (It is quite cheap and fits within the repair budget), and everything is running smoothly.
