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?
Thanks for this info. I have a Nexus 7 myself and it has never done this, however long experience with computers prepares me for possible disasters! We are about to head into a week long heatwave and I can guarantee at least one device will have a hissy fit as it overheats. Always good to know the quick fixes.
