Any suggestions are appreciated.

My nexus 7 2012 completely died one night and can never get it to turn back on even holding the power down 30 seconds, trying to boot into bootloader. Previous to that I was running into freezing problem so I had to factory flash through the bootloader/comouter back to stock 3 times, so I know it's not something as easy as holding the power button.

I went out and purchased a replacement battery, but no luck there. Computer doesn't recognize it. It won't charge through the micro USB or though the side via a dock either. Any other suggestions on what it might be, I've reseated the ribbon cables for the charging circuit with no luck. My guess is a board got fried. Was a good little tablet while it lasted less than 2 years.

I am wondering if it is a damaged motherboard. Would explain the inability to both power on and the PC not connecting to it.
