Here are a few things to try. Make sure you are using the cable and the charging device that came with the Nexus 7, let it charge for an hour or two on the charger. Then attempt to turn the tablet on. If that does not work let me know. I had the same issue with my tablet I know how frustrating this can be.

It has been charging over night. I have been using the cord and plug that came with my device.

Next thing to do is to open up the case. If you look at the back of the nexus 7, you will see a seam around the edges of the device. You should be able to use your finger nails to open that up. It comes off easy. Then take a look at the image below.

The red box is the battery; the green box is the cable that plugs into the connector in the orange box. Sometimes on the Nexus 7 the battery can move around and the connector becomes loose.
