Failed autofocus - am I missing something?

Hi, recently I have shot about and hour of video with my 1 month old D7100 and after I got back to shooting pictures I found out that autofocus doesn't work anymore. I went through the settings, tested on three lenses (with and without internal motor) - same thing.

When I half-press shutter button, focus does not engage (illuminator does not engage too despite being set to "on"), I have a blinking "> <" in the viewfinder and if I wait a couple of seconds, lens goes to infinity and back, still no confirmed focus.

Am I missing anything, maybe I forgot some setting, or do I have a broken camera? I hope they will honor US warranty in Canada - Nikon website says they should if I have a US receipt, which I do.

I even tried to reflash recent firmware and that didn't help. I don't thing there is a full factory settings reset, is there?

Any advice?

Thanks
