    I just went to put it on the charger and usually it says "charging" but it didn't ~ then I tried to turn it on and nothing!

    Please tell me that warranty is not only 30 days? I thought I read that here.

    How can it just die like that? I just tried it again. Nothing. Nada. ZIP. It is so cold too.:(

    It was working fine last night.....

    Still dead. I just can't believe it. What the hell happened to it? I only have had it for not even two months and I was so careful.

    Wanna know where I am going the minute Apple opens today? If they don't get me a new one ~ you just might hear one crazy lady from Cali.:(

    I have to go to work now ~ without my ipad ~

    So not cool.:(

    "If iPad won't turn on, or the display stops responding
    Follow these steps, testing after each:"


    "Turn the iPad off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPad for a few seconds, until a red slider appears. Then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
    Reset iPad. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears"


    I googled this just now. My ipad won't turn on so to assist in this problem, turn on your ipad.....


    Makes sense to me.:(


    NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh dear. It's sulking.
    That will teach you to post rude things about your iPad yesterday.

    Try connecting with iTunes in case your charger has died.
    If that and the other instructions have failed, that a walk to the store sounds wise to me :(
    Good Luck.

    Try another charger, another plug, another wire?

    My screen went black once and I though it was dead - couldn't turn it on (because it actually was on with a black screen). I think if you hold down both buttons for like 10 sec, it will force power down. Then you should be able to power it back on normally by holding the top button for a few seconds.

    If your battery is actually completely dead and your charger isnt working, you'll have to try and charge it with your computer through the USB cable. If its off, it should charge slowly on any computer.

    Try a hard reset: hold the Sleep and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears. Should be about 5 seconds until that happens. If no Apple appears, sadly something is broken.

    Don't worry, a hard reset will not delete anything from the iPad. Hope everything turns out okay!
