    Well you have it connected to the charger, can you see the lightning bolt across the battery symbol?

    Go to your local apple store and have them exchange your charger.

    You definitely have a bad charger.

    I think it would be easier to buy one online, which I'll do just to have a spare. I left it charging all morning and even though it said not charging, it did. Now it seems to be back to normal!!! I just hope it stays that way....

    Try a reset first...

    Press and hold the Power and Home buttons until the slider control appears and then accept the offer to power down.

    It might be trickle charging via your PC. That would mean it's charging at a lower rate than the iPad charger's usual 10w, but it's charging. Some PC and laptop USB ports offer 5w charging. That prompts the iPad to indicate that it's not charging.

    You can easily test by using the original charger and plugging into a wall outlet. If your iPad starts charging, then your PC USB port is charging at lower than 10w.

    Yes Thomas that is what I did, as I said it was charging but still said it wasn't... And at a slower pace.... Now all seems ok.
    I am using using the original charger and didn't know I could charge through my PC. Whenever I have the iPad connected to PC it has never charged....

    Tim---- thanks for the assistance. I had a Gen 2 that was just showing me the little rotating clock icon while it was charging and I couldn't get it to turn on. With your tip on the Reset, all is well with the world... I think what must have happened was I let the power get down below 2% and it shifted into some kind of sleep mode or something...make sense??
