Nexus 7 not booting up

Few days back I observed that when I plugged my Nexus 7 for charging it did not show me the white battery icon which denotes that it is charging. Even after disconnecting and connecting the charger multiple times to the tablet, it was not showing any sign of life. Obviously I was a little worried and googled for any solution. I found that I am not alone and lots of other Nexus 7 users have faced similar issue.

There are various blogs, sites on which you can find solution. Google also acknowledged and posted the solution on its support site:
Nexus 7 faces this problem if the battery is fully drained and also remains in that state for quite some time (not always the case though). I followed these steps and brought my Nexus 7 back to life:
1.    plugged the tablet to its charger
2.    pressed and held the power button for more than 15 seconds and booting process started
There is one more solution documented on the Google support site (above link) for this problem if these steps do not work.
