Please come back to say whether a member's assistance solved a problem. Others may be helped by that.
Everybody please read the forum rules--->http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html
iPad3 64gig black, PC Windows 8 Pro, Samsung Galaxy mobile phone, Electrolux refrigerator (cool version)
My IPad 3 will not charge all I get is the battery symbol red the charge symbol under it but battery does not move showing that it is not
charging when that disappears the apple symbol appears then that closes and I get my password screen but that goes in about 2 seconds
those 3 screens continue to appear and disappear for the time that the iPad is plugged into the charger but it does not charge
We don't have an apple store here nearest one is about 700kms away I have tried the hard reset but did not work I don't mind replacing
parts but my problem is what do I replace? Is there a way to find out what is broken even though I have a dead flat battery
Does replacing the charge point fix the problem? Or is there another part that solves my problem
I await the knowledge from those that hold it
Hi Neil - first, are you using a 10W or 12W Apple charger which should have come w/ the iPad; if not, how are you trying to charge the iPad? Second, if the iPad's battery is fully depleted then a prolonged charge may be needed, i.e. you might want to plug it in using the appropriate charger, shut down, and just wait a number of hours.
Now if you are using the right charger & try the prolong charging time and still have no results, do you have access to another charger & cable, i.e. that may be the problem; and be sure to try charging in different electrical outlets. For more information, CHECK HERE - good luck!
Hi Neil and welcome to the Forum!
As you have opened 2 threads on this same issue and both posts hold differing information, I have merged the 2. It is best to keep all information on a problem together to make it easier for members to be able to help you, it is also against forum Rules to post more than once on an issue for the above reasons also.
You have a difficult issue here which will be very hard for anyone to guess what would be a possible solution. It appears that your iPad has been dropped which then makes a solution even harder to find as something inside your iPad may have been jarred lose or broken.
If your iPad is still under warranty, if you were to go to an Apple store they may very well offer you a new iPad but with a cost, which is normally around half the price you paid for it. This is their normal procedure in these cases.
You may try to fix it yourself but as you can see this could cost you quite a bit trying the differing avenues of what can be replaced and then there is no guarantee that you would end up with a working iPad. So I'm thinking the best scenario is to get in touch with Apple directly and tell them what has happened to your iPad and find out what they can do for you.
In the meantime, I've moved your thread to our Help Section where you will receive a better response.
Hi giradman I am using the original charger that came with the iPad and I have had it on charge for days at a time with no movement on battery still as flat as a tack
Hi leelai thank you for the move just one thing I actually posted in the help first off but Andrew aka OB moved it too the D.I.Y. but now you have moved it back I think perhaps the admins need to workout what should go where and stick to it because in two days I have been moved twice hard to get help when I
keep posting in one forum and the disapear into another
