    I own an 1 1/2 year old IPad 4
    Since 2 days my iPad is totally dead
    It's not charging at all
    Thought it would be problem with 5w charger, now tried with original iPad charger

    As soon as I connect to AC power, RED empty battery logo ~> then the apple logo for few seconds ~>restarts and red battery ~> apple logo

    So the iPad keeps restarting
    Not charging
    Tried putting in recovery mode, but once I try to check to restart -iPad is totally dead
    Again switching to AC power it goes on restarting
    And iPad is not even turning on without switching to AC POWER !!!
    So I am helpless, connecting to iTunes is useless until computer at least detects it in recovery mode

    Please help
    It's already out of warranty

    When it's battery is completely empty, it'll need at least 20 minutes until you'll notice a difference. If you haven't tried charging it for a longer period, do so.

    Inspect your lightning connector for debris or damage. Then plug the iPad in with a known working charger and cable and leave it for 24 hours. Afterwards try booting it up again.
