    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Try a reset of your iPad here.

    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you may see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. This may take 20 to 30 seconds to accomplish so be patient and let us know if this fixes the issue.

    Thanks for your reply. I have tried that already and its still the same. I can't even see the swipe on and off button just a vague light to show that it had power. I had this problem about a month ago and done what you suggested. It seemed to work. But now I have repeated this exercise but doesn't seem to want to respond. :-( it's very puzzling hope it's not broken.

    I would try it again but with your iPad off and see if this does make a difference.

    Which iPad do you have and do you know if it has a good charge?

    I have tried it again sadly nothing.


    I have the original 32g. Before it went like this there was 34% power to it.

    I have also noticed that when plugged in I read and hold the two keys down it does appear to go off. But when I press the home screen I can see the vague light again. However, when its not plugged in the mains it will remain switched off unless I switch it on again.

    Not sure of this gives u anymore indication of what it could be. :-(

    Gosh I'm not sure what is happening here at all.

    I do vaguely remember reading something like this which turned out to be the Brightness Control setting......have you checked that?

    I've moving your thread to our Help Section where I hope others will have some more info on this. Good luck!

    It could be worth connecting it to your PC/Mac, sync it (to get a back up of your data) and then restoring it from the backup.

    A suggestion.
    From what I've read you've got an original first generation iPad. If your budget can accommodate it, a latest generation 32G wifi is 479. That's a reasonable price bump for what you're getting.

    However if you're sticking to a budget do what's right for you.
