Removed the back cover. Did it with my finger nail. I was looking for some place to insert my nail in and the cover actually popped out a bit. Form there onward, it was a piece of cake.
Disconnected the battery (checked ifixit website for that).
Pushed the power button and it turned on.
Battery is at 100% coz it remained on charge overnight.
So that was all about resetting the battery.
Thanks a million to everyone who helped.
You rule! Sure enough the battery cable was loose.
Just got my Nexus 7 a couple days ago. It would not power on. I was able to power it on using the USB cable and it showed charging 0% I tried everything to charge it and it continued to stay at 0%.
When I first opened the back I noticed that the battery was not straight in its compartment. After I pushed the battery cable in to the connector the battery sat square. Powered on. Battery at 34%. Charged for an hour now at 80%
Thanks a million to everyone who helped
