Hi, I just recently bought my nexus 7 about 2-3 weeks ago and suddenly the screen has become unresponsive. The lock button works and will lock and unlock and rotating the screen still works but I cannot unlock it or do anything involving touch. I've reboot at least 10 times and it doesn't do anything. I've never dropped it and I baby it. Is there anything I can do? Has this happened to anyone else?

It's past the 15 day return date so that isn't an option so I'm going to need an attempt to fix sadly

I have read over the forum and it seems like a lot of people have some kind of touchscreen problems.

Yes, this is a VERY common problem (I went thru 3 before i gave up all with the same screen issues). I don't know why so many people are saying the screen issues are normal (my original Nexus 7 doesn't have any issues). The problem is apparently a grounding issue since it is completely eliminated when the USB cable is plugged in.

I'm sort of confused. I purchased my nexus 7 2013 in November and I've only had screen issues a few times but nothing too annoying (maybe it did not respond while selecting something). How do I know if my nexus has or will have the same issue? Is there any way to see when it was manufactured? Does it affect if I have installed a custom rom? Thanks in advance

This is the problem, people are OK with the screen not being responsive (that is a major problem) the original 7 has no issues with this, so obviously they know how to make a responsive screen.
To answer your question, If you plug your 2013 Nexus 7 in and it corrects the issue your tablet is in fact defective.

Over the last couple of days I'm having a lot of trouble with touch. If I lock and then unlock it it fixes it for a while.
