I have some really weird issue, basically after playing a game for like 15-20min top part of the tablet close to the camera gets really warm.
Well that's not that weird, but then my speakers randomly just stop working and there is no way to get them to work again without restarting the device, homever when i plug a headphones there is a sound. (after restarting speakers work again until it gets hot again...)
Im on stock right now, but it was happening on SlimKat aswell.
You think it's hardware failure? Is there any logical explanation to this, why would speakers stop working due to cpu/gpu heat?

Just to update, it seems my N7 is regaining sound without restarting the device.

After i lost sound from speakers, i left my tab without restarting - after about 20-30min's idling the sound is back again..

Sounds like a hardware issue. Could be an audio chip overheating or short circuiting perhaps. Has it always happened since you bought it?

Not always, anyway short after making this thread i RMA'd my n7.
Ended up it was a hardware issue and they have replaced motherboard, actually waiting to pick it up from UPS..
