    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.

    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!

    I did this right before I left at 2:30AM, and it worked!! I just got home and it has charged 100% and all seems fine.

    Why did this happen? Would you guys still take it back and get a new one?

    Thank you everyone!!


    About time ya all woke up!:D

    Your desktop computer doesn't have enough juice going through your USB port to charge the iPad. The iPad is a thirsty one. Just use the wall charger to charge, and desktop to sync.

    Glad everything is okay. Sometimes something crashes (more than just an app) and it causes the iPad to go comatose. A hard reset usually does the trick. I wouldn't feel the need to exchange the iPad unless you can reproduce it consistently.

    Posting at 2:30am AND 7am? Did you even sleep yet??

    Thank You! Shitums, I was trippin.


    My day starts at 2AM with my second job ~ I am our janitor for our building/offices. I actually clean my own office! I don't sleep well, so I just go in at that time, as it has to be done before we open at 8AM.

    Now I must shower and go to work. For real. Thank you so much for always being around to help me!:)

    Wow. Do you work around the corner from where you live? Getting ready for work at 7:41am for an office that opens at 8am? Surely you must start after 8 or else it's the shortest commute I've heard of (other than working in your home where the commute consists of walking from one room to another).

    When I had the black screen, I could see, in a dark room that the backlight to the screen was still on - there was a little light around the edges. Plus, after rebooting I saw that there was an update for the BBC News app that fixes "black screen" problems. I had been using that app when I turned off my iPad last.

    When you are connected to your computer, your ipad will say that it isnt charging because it only charges when the screen is off. If you can see the screen its not charging. If you turn it off and plug it in, it will charge slowly.

    Glad you got it working. I wouldnt take it back unless you start having the problem more frequently. Chances are its an app causing the problem.

    Well shitums!! I work the "graveyard" shift and usually the first thing I do when I get home is check in here to see what kind of trouble Ms SP has gotten herself into over night. So last night was pretty long and grueling (the A/C went out) so I came home and went to bed... and now this!

    Sorry Sweet... forgive me???

    Well ~ there are 30 of us and we work out in the field. We don't really go into the offices much ~ We have our own case load as counselors, so we don't have to be at work, in the office, at 8.:D, like management or the day program.
