    Charging problems.

    Any one having problems when plugging in cable to charge iPad via electric socket charger.
    I keep having to unplug and plug in USB end till it eventually starts charging.
    I have bought a new cable from apple but still the same.
    Cheers

    Using the same cable, does it connect to the pc/mac fine? If so, then the socket plug, or whatever they call it is faulty, a connection inside has probably come loose.

    I would guess therefore that the charger piece has a faulty connector...
    You shouldn't' have any problems like this if everything is OK.

    Mmmmm. My charger was new so I did not think that would be the problem. Just had a closer look at the charger.
    I may need to speak to my son very soon. Mine looks not very new.
    Thanks for you replies.

    Mine just started saying "not charging" when I plug it in. I unplug and plug a couple of times and it will charge. Weird.

    IPAD stopped charging when plugged in to the IMAC

    I know this is an old thread....but my latest glitch seems related....in the past few weeks, I have been having trouble with my IPAD charging when connected to the Apple Desk Top. If I dont watch it...it bleeds what little charge is left...down to zero. I am able to use the same charging/connecting cord to the AC plug and charge fully....and the cord is syncing and updating programs properly when connected to the computer.

    Could perhaps this be a software glitch in IPAD 4.3.5 update? I also have no problem charging the iPAD using the car charger.

    My IPAD is a year old and performs beautifully otherwise.

    My understanding that it doesn't work well to charge an Ipad on pc or mac.

    The newer macs will charge iPad. Older macs and pcs will charge iPad through USB but it is VERY slow and still shows the "not charging" in the top.

    Thanks for the responses. Appreciated. The problem persists however. I have used my fairly new IMAC OS X ver 10.5.8--2GHz Intel with 3GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM to charge the IPAD since purchased a year ago and it has worked perfectly albeit slow to charge (up to 10 hours for a low battery state)...but that worked well overnight....and now the IPAD starts to charge then stops charging at about 24% (while I am sleeping of course). In the morning, I have to use the wall socket charging adapter to fully charge it. Yes, I know the answer........so, plug it in to the wall socket charger. I still would like to know why the USB connect has stopped working as designed. I really don't feel it is worth a shop visit if that is all that is wrong. Any other ideas, let me know. Again, thanks.
