Common Problems On Nexus 7 And Their Solutions
Nexus 7 Rapid battery drain
Rapid battery drain is one of the most common problems on Nexus 7 that many users are facing. The battery is draining much faster than expected, and some users have reported that the tablet won’t charge up at all when they plug it.
The battery draining issue may occur because of a specific app which is not optimized for android 4.3. Many users have reported that Netflix app is the main culprit. So you can stop using this app until the update is available.
If you find that the tablet is not charging when plugged in, test the charger on other devices, and if you find that the charger is ok, then contact with the retailer and ask for a replacement.

Nexus 7 Screen flickering
Few Nexus 7 users have noticed that the screen of the tablet is prone to flickering. It is specifically noticeable on lower brightness settings.
Pull the notification shade down from top right and select Brightness to turn off the auto brightness option and make sure that the screen brightness is set to more than 40 percent brightness.
However, if you see that the screen turns off completely if you set the screen brightness too low, it might be a hardware fault. In such case, contact with the retailer or Google and exchange the device.

Another problem that Nexus 7 users have complained about is speaker buzzing. They have complained that a static sound at low volume is coming from the tablet. For some people, the sound is coming even if they mute the speaker.
You can use headphones instead speaker, and it should solve the problem. You can also plug the headphones when the speaker is muted. You can also use a portable speaker.
The speaker problem seems to be related with Brightness settings. So drag down the notification shade and tap the Brightness to decrease it and see if it makes any changes.
Google released a fix as well for this problem. So check that you have the latest update by going to Settings > About Tablet > System updates.
