Great device - no faults
This is a discussion on IPad hardware failures within the Apple iPad Polls forums, part of the Apple iPad Forums category; Great device - no faults...
No problems except that I have NO SOUND. It seems that my IPad thinks it is docked. Sometimes I get a small sound but usually there is nothing. Can anyone help???
My iPad just had the strange behaviour.
Was working fine when I just went to use it in the other room. No drop or anything nothing, was working 2 seconds before and suddenly it would come on again
Pressing home button or switch would just give nothing. The battery was at 56% and I hade a couple of apps loaded, IMO and safari
I plugged the iPad to the power thinking that maybe the battery was flat but nothing was happening. Left it for few minutes but nothing.
Then wile with power connected I pressed home and switch together for few seconds. After that the apple came up and after a bit it came back alive. However since this incident that I can't justify in any way the response doesn't seems the same.
Some field don't work anymore and selecting a text seems to be very fiddling now. sometimes doesn't even respond to the touch in some areas.
I will try to talk to apple see what they say about it.
I had this for just 2 weeks. Doesn't look very good to me. Im very careful and case is always on.
Had very high latency on my wifi with my first iPad. Slow speeds, slow downloading. Exchanged it and my second iPad is fine.
iPad 16GB 3G
iPhone 4 16GB
2010 MBP 13"
My previous ipad would not charge, even with the supplied wall charger.
I took it to the apple store and they replaced it; no hassle.
The new one is working great so far.
I'm a few days late it looks like. My first iPad I had to return because the volume up button was not working. At that time Apple told me I would either have to go to an iPhone store or mail it in and they would ship it to me once they received my old unit. I didn't know of any iPhone stores so I paid for their extended warranty so they would ship it out to me immediately and give me a return label to ship it back. All went well but I should have just gone to an iPhone store.
According to the Apple Store CS, the iPads 3G antenna broke, so the iPad got replaced. But after installing the backup on the replacement, 3G in the new model stopped working as well. Downloading&installing the firmware again worked as a work-a-round, but I lost all data, since the backup is broken.
Other than that, it is working the way it should.
Since you say that after reinstalling the factory setup it worked I would conclude that the problem was related to some application that you have installed. If you didn't give up you should restore again your backup and uninstall one by one your apps trying to understand which is creating the problem. If you are lucky you might be able to save all your data. Good luck!
My iPad stopped charging one night. I tried to sync, but the iPad was not recognized by my MacBook. Eventually the iPad was locked on the apple logo. Genius bar replaced the iPad when they could not rercover.
