@ramon - if you know the battery is good, the only other possibilities are your charger and the logic board.

I have a 1st Gen Nexus 7 32GB with a dead board, but can't find a replacement 32GB anywhere. Will an 8gb or 16gb board fit, or do the 32gb have a different chassis?

@Clint - they mostly just act as a ground and to secure it.

the motherboard has 8 little flexible metal tabs that seem to meet up with metal plates on the back cover. Do you know what these are for? i noticed two were bent out and broke them off while trying to bend them back so they come into contact with their matching plates on the back case. (was hoping this had something to do with my nexus not functioning after replacing the lcd)

I replaced my cracked screen/digitizer with a brand new one. Now I have no picture whatsoever, but I can still access the files when plugged into a computer. Do you think I might need a new LCD ribbon cable?
