    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Try a reset of your iPad, this reset will not change anything on your iPad and is akin to rebooting a pc.
    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know if this makes a difference here.

    Do you allow your battery to run down totally occasionally? It's a good idea to do this as this will recalibrate it.

    I have seen reports of problems with the port, have a look to see if anything has lodged there.

    I've moved your thread to our Help Section where you will receive a better response

    have you tried to do a software up date on the machine - more often than not this is something that apple & many other manufactures recommend is to regularly update the software for the product other than that i'm not too sure myself

    What happens if you start charging with the IPad off then turn it on? Will it keep charging?
