I've had the same.
Nexus 7 simply wouldn't charge anymore.
Do a reset (= pressing power button for ca. 30 seconds).
Voila. It (most likely) will be back on and charge again.
Only found this in the web myself.
Who would press power for 30 seconds, if not knowing about this?
No, as I said, I tried the various tips of holding down the power button, holding down the power and volume up/down buttons again and again. I may get static snowflakes on the screen, or nothing, or flashing, but it is not turning on any more.
