Hi Everyone,
 
I have a new Nexus 7. As soon as I brought it home, I checked it:to make sure it started charging and also boot-up.

Now 3-4 weeks later, its been lying idle inside the packaging/box. I hooked it up for charging and nothing came on !on! No charging message, no Nexus Logo. Just Blankblank.

I tried everything, holding the power button for 30 secs, 60 secs, forever ... nothing. All I get is the back-light. If I hold the volume+power button for some time, I get some flickering/snow on the screen. I even left it in the socket for 2 days, still the same thing. StrangelyStrangely, if I take it off charging; it becomes a 7" brick, with even the flicker orand back-light not coming.failing.
