So yesterday i turned off my nexus s to make it charge better and well let it breath! (I almost never turn it off so...) i thought it was a good thing to do. When turning it on this morning, it didn't even complete the operation of turning it on and turned off automatically and turned on again... and turned off and turned on..etc. i know i have to buy a new battery 'cause i have to charge my phone like 3 times a day but i am wondering if that's what causing the problem or it won't even make a change.. i really like this phone i hope its not dead forever...

Need help please!

Does the screen light up with the battery symbol while it's charging?

Yes the screen light up and it is not the LG nexus but the samsung google nexus s. I went to see someone at the store and they told me to recovery boot my phone, but the problem is my phone is not turned on long enough to do back ups on my computer. . It might be a dead end for my nexus s...

Do this

Remove the battery

Reinstall the battery

Press power and volume up and hold them

If you're able to get into fast boot mode, select recovery

If you're not able to then you may need to have the phone serviced.
