Question about ASUS Google Nexus 7 8GB Tablet Unlocked Black
I turned my nexus 7 off 2 hrs ago properly and then just tried to turn it back on and it won't do anything. I tried charging it thinking that might be the problem but it won't charge either
You can try a hard reset. Hold down the power button and the volume buttons at the same time. The device should then power on and you can follow the on-screen prompts.
Hope that helps!

The battery connector in the Nexus 7 (2012 model) is notoriously problematic. Sometimes dropping the device can cause issues that prevent the Nexus 7 from charging altogether. A hard reset may not work. Fortunately, it is quite easy to fix.
However this will void your warranty.
Pop the back of the Nexus 7 case open by pushing a credit card or guitar pick or small screwdriver under the edge of the black plastic case. Start from the top and gently pry the case open, working your way around. The back of the case will come off quite easily. The battery occupies the bulk of the left-hand side of the unit, and a group of six wires come out of the top of the battery to a connector on the circuit board. Gently push the plug out of the socket connector, wait 15 seconds, and push it back in. Snap the case back on and plug in your charger. You should now see the battery charge image appear.

Remove the rear cover...use your fingernails, or something thin and plastic (like a guitar pick) to get it started, then work your way around unsnapping it until it is off. Now unplug the battery, the battery connector pulls up towards you to unplug, it snaps in. Now, you have to put the rear cover back on..because as you will notice there is foil on it, and pins on the board that ground through that foil. After the cover is back on...press and hold the power button for 30 seconds or so to completely discharge the energy from the board. pop the back cover off, plug the battery back in, put the cover back on...and plug the tablet in. Now when you push the power button you should see a battery charging icon...let the tablet charge for an hour or so...then boot it up if you would like, but let it charge to 100% before unplugging. Good luck!!
