Anyone experienced this? What steps did you do to fix this issue.

Not with the N7, but with other devices. I had eventually read in a few thread that the issue was sometimes fixed by removing the back panel, disconnecting the battery terminal clip & leaving it unplugged for an hour or so & then reconnecting the battery, replacing the back & charging (without turning it on or pressing buttons).
From experience with the N7, I can tell you the back is easy to remove & really requires no tool, as long as you can slide a thumbnail between the screen & the back body bezel. Just take caution, like rubber gloves (non-powdered) to avoid static discharge (risk is minimal anyway for most) & to also avoid getting oils on the copper sheeting used in the device for heat dissipation. I had touch screen issues that ended up being caused by a loose ribbon cable, so I have opened mine & I did it without tools & there were no seals I had to break. Take a look at the ifixit teardown for a better idea of how simple removing the back is & for the location of the battery terminal block, which really is right there once the N7 is open.
