Default Nexus 7 2013 Black Screen

Hi guys. Great forum

I tried to use my device today and it was unresponsive. The device was previously left on with full charge but when i came to use it the screen would not activate as normal. I tried turning the tablet on/off but still the screen was blank. I tried charging it but there was no charge icon.

I assumed a battery issue or some sort of bootloop. I followed the instructions on here to enter the bootloader menu but despite multiple power/volume button combos, nothing happened.

Then (stupidly) I realised the device was still switched on! I only realised this as i received an email and the notification light lit up! I am also able to contact and locate the device using Google Device Manager. So the device is switched on but the screen is dead

The device has not sufferred any physical damage. It was in a bag inside a case for a few hours with the screen locked.

Is there any way round this that you guys know of?

Many thanks in advance.
