Hi again try these steps:

  1. Plug-in your dead Nexus 7 to a wall charger. (Jump immediately to step 2.)
  2. Immediately after plugging it in, press Volume Down and Power at the same time.

*This should get you into the bootloader menu. You may have to try this with different chargers or test out the timing in order to get it to work.

  1. Once in the bootloader menu, use Volume Down until you see “Power Off Device.”
  2. Choose that option with the Power button.
  3. Once your device is off, unplug the charger and then plug it back into the device.
  4. You should now see the battery meter (pictured above) with your device returning to life.

Let me know if this resolves the issue.

I hope the information given helps. If the answer to your question was informative and helpful, please show your appreciation for my efforts by clicking the green Accept Answer button right below my first response. Thank you.
