    1. Plug-in your dead N7 to a wall charger. (Jump immediately to step 2.)
    2. Immediately after plugging it in, press Volume Down and Power at the same time.
    3. Once in the bootloader menu, use Volume Down until you see “Power Off Device.”
    4. Choose that option with the Power button.
    5. Once your device is off, unplug the charger and then plug it back into the device.

    Thank you for the suggestion !!
    I opened the back cover, and pushed the battery lead (around 5-6 multi-coloured wires coming out of the battery) into its socket until it clicked into place.
    I wasn't looking forward to the whole process of returning the tablet and waiting for a replacement.

    Hi all - I popped open the back cover but I am not sure which plug you guys are referring to. Is it the multicolored one? It seems to be securely locked in I guess. Please Help!

    Pry open the back of the Nexus 7 (be careful - Google instructions on how to do this). Press down on the battery on all corners and in the middle, making sure the battery is firmly in place. Put the back cover back onto the Nexus 7. Turn on the Nexus 7, and voila, problem is solved. Nexus 7 is now fully charged!

    Also had this problem.
    Removed back, easy to do, no loose wires to worry about.
    Battery was disconnected.
    You need to lift battery out, as it is slightly sticky (so it won't move) and then replug it in.
    Press battery back into place and replace cover.
    Bingo, will now charge.

    Thumbs up Re: My new Nexus 7 not charging

    Hello I had an issue with my NEXUS which wasn't charging in fact. I tried everything, plugged it on the computer but nothing. Then I read in a forum to open the back and check if the battery was correctly plugged. I did it unplugged the battery first and re-plugged it carefully and properly. Result: my NEXUS 7 is working perfectly.
    I hope you'll solve your problem.

    I bought a Nexus 7 yesterday and out of the box it would not power up or charge. Tried all the hacks, nothing worked. Took it back. Went to another store and had them open another one and try to power it before buying, same thing. Sucks cause I really wanted a N7. Bought a Galaxy 2 7 inch instead.

    How about the 2nd Gen of Nexus 7?

    Mine took 7 hours to charge 20%. This is ridiculous, and definitely not okay.

    I have tried multiple outlets, multiple chargers, multiple cords, and still doesnt charge.

    I have turned it off and charged it, that didnt work.

    I have put it in the fastboot mode thing, that didnt work.

    Can't think of anything else to do other than replace the battery or charging dock inside the N7 tablet./
