    It does sound like a hardware failure but, just in case, try a reboot.

    Turn the iPad off and then press and hold the Power and Home buttons for about 6-9 seconds until the white Apple logo appears (if it does). The iPad will reboot.

    If that fails, then take it to an Apple Store. You'll see many threads - some this morning even - from Members who have returned dropped iPads to an Apple Store and have received a new one in return at no cost as a 'goodwill' once-in-a-lifetime gesture from Apple.

    I think if you took it in and explained what happened they would react kindly. Remember, you have no rights here, so you need to be humble and polite. Even if it doesn't work out at the first Apple Store, we've not yet had a Member who has not had their iPad replaced.

    If it's a first generation iPad then, yes, they'd replace it with a first generation model of the same specification.
