I have a 2012 version Nexus 7 that I let my grandkids play with. It's subject to the bumps and bruises a 5 year old can give it, and recently it fell (in its case) off the couch onto a carpeted floor. Hardly a life ending knock.
After this I found I couldn't charge the beast though - even after a shutdown at the bootloader level. After 14 hours on the charger it was still showing 0% charge.
I popped the back off, unplugged the battery and plugged it in firmly. The charge level immediately jumped up to 94% and all seems back to normal. So when all else fails, plug in the battery.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984
