To get the best support with this, you need to contact the Google Nest support team directly for next steps.

  1. Go to Contact Us - Google Nest Help
  2. Select an appropriate product or category, type a brief description of the issue, then click Next.
  3. Click Other, then click Next step.
  4. In the Resources section, click Next step.
  5. Choose to get a phone call, call or chat with the team, depending on availability in your country.

Have your thermostat’s serial number ready to give to the support agent before you call. To find your thermostat’s serial number, pull the display off the base and flip it over. The serial number is above the QR code on the back of the display. When you reach an agent, let them know that you’re seeing the W5 error and that you've already tried restarting the thermostat.

can not access resources or any other info.  the site won't let me get in.

Would you be able to share a photo or screenshot of what you're seeing? 

You don't need to login with an account to access the contact link I shared.

I don't know how to attach screenshot.  Thermostat says w5 error and nest app says off line.

Not a screenshot of your thermostat. You mentioned you weren't able to access the contact link I shared for the support team?
