    I bought an iPad 2 second hand recently. I am having an issue where it won't charge unless I restart it. However when I do this it continues to restart itself over and over. I contacted the seller and they said they never had the issue. So, it started when I Updated to ios 8. It eventually stops restarting itself but once again I cannot charge it until I restart it, starting the process all over again. Can anyone help?

    First of all, try resetting it: press Home and Power button until the Apple logo appears. Let go of both, the iPad will power up on it's own.

    If this doesn't help:
    Use iTunes to restore it. Here's a link with the instructions: http://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201252
    After restoring, reset your device again.

    Great suggestion? I would want to do the above for security reasons alone! You never know what is stored on it or apps running on auto start.

    Doesn't sound logical, but helps sometimes.

    Don't mean to offend.

    Have you tried to restore your iPad?
