    Hi

    I have a ipad 1 gene, now I have had problems with it for long. When I try to charge it (with the original charger) I just get the plug connector by the battery, and it will not charge. When connected to the charger, turn it on and off by themselves, have tried to restore it, but did not work either. thought it was a thing with the update to ios 5.0. Now that I have innsatalert 5.1 does not comply with this error. Hope someone can help me with it.

    Thank you

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :)

    Please take a look at this Apple support article on Battery Management - an Apple recommendation is to allow the battery to fully discharge about once a month which re-calibrates charge monitoring of the battery.

    Also, if available (friend or Apple store?), try another iPad charger (you'll need one that outputs 10 W like the original); if you do visit an Apple store (or another place that can test your battery/charger) further in depth testing can be done.

    Finally, if the battery might need to be replaced, review this other Apple support article on Battery Replacement - the 'new' iPad might be another consideration, if you do need the battery replaced? Good luck and please post back your results - :thumbs:

    Check your cord, is it kinked at the place where you plug it in? I have had to replace mine three times (FREE from the store).
