    Brett,

    I am not sure what is causing the issue. I am sure you have tried rebooting as well with no luck.

    I would suggest taking the back off (it just snaps off) and disconnect the battery, wait about 10-20 seconds, reconnect and pop the back on again. Boot up again and see if it is any better.

    Beyond that, the only other suggestion I have is to do a factory reset (Settings - Backup & Reset - Factory Data Reset). This will wipe all data from your tablet, so you will want to back anything up (files, apps, etc) before trying this if at all possible.

    I do not have a N7 to know much more about it, but you can always stop in to NexusTablets.net and ask the guys there, there are a lot more N7 users over at that forum.

    Moved to the Nexus 7 forum.

    Had some problems when Nexus 7 updated. Held the on/off switch and volume switch down till it restarted that seemed to get it running OK. My Norton antivirus has stopped working. Looking on the Norton website it is a problem Norton knows about and they are working on a fix. The screen kept shutting down after a few seconds so changed the screen shutdown time to 30 mins though every now and again the screen darkens a little and then goes back to normal so I think there may be a few bugs that need fixing.

    Did Google hire any of those laid-off Motorola/Verizon Android people to work on this JB 4.2 OTA update?
