I have a Nexus 6P that I purchased via RW about 2 yrs.
I’m on the 4GB plan $45 monthly.
I’m not a high volume cell phone user - I don’t live on my phone or do everything with my phone.
I know there are battery issues with some of these phones but I’ve never had any issues with this phone until today. It powered off and won’t power back on no matter what I try.
I put my phone on the charger at night, this morning it was 100% charged. The charge is the one that came with the phone.
About an hour later I noticed the Google logo, I figured it did an update and was rebooting, however, it never powered back on.
I pressed the power button and held it in - nothing happened.
Tried again and held it in longer - nothing happened.
I tried the power button + vol down button - nothing happened.
I tried the power button + vol up button - nothing happened.
I took it to work and put it on the cradle charger there, I thought maybe my charging cable died.
Left in on the cradle for several hours - no signs of life.
Did research on the issue, had my techie friend try everything I tried - nothing happened.
Came home, attached it to my laptop via different cable - nothing happened.
Laptop doesn’t even recognize there’s a device attached no matter how many times you plug/unplug
Device manager doesn’t see it even if you rescan for new hardware.
So at this point my real questions are:
Is there any way to retrieve the data from the 6P if I can’t get it to power on long enough to do a transfer to my laptop or another phone? Direct transfer from the sim card via a card reader?
Other than the possibility of salvaging pics, transferring data, etc - Is trying a replacement battery even worth the expense if I have to buy a new phone anyway?
