    you'll have to be more specific. How are you trying to charge your iPad? Are you using the supplied charger plugged into a wall socket or are you connecting the cable to the USB port on a computer? Some USB ports do not supply enough power to properly charge an iPad. It will show as not charging, when in fact it is trickle charging at a very slow rate.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Try a reset of your iPad and see if this fixes the issue. Let us know how you go.
    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you may see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.

    Thank you-- I did this and am hopeful that it will work. On a good note-- for the first time I heard the charging sound/beep. Will let you know i. A few hours if this fixes the problem.
    Thank you again for your helpful hints!

    You're welcome! It's a good idea to do a reset after any update to your iPad as it just helps everything to settle in nicely.

    I hope this has fixed your issue now but let us know if it hasn't.

    It finally charged to 100%, but it's very hard to get it to charge -- had to play with the plug in into the iPad for quite a whole and just hope I can get it to charge again when it needs it

    Well that is good you did get it up to charge. Have a look at your charging port, any debris at all? A quick vacuum can work wonders or a shot of canned air to dislodge anything stuck in there.

    Do you know if it's a genuine Apple charger or not? Some of the cheaper ones have been known to fail.

    Thank you for all the tips-- I used the vacuum on it and it seems to work much better. One more question, the ad I bought as an ipad 2 seems to really be a 3 because with the update to ios7 it has siri and my other ipad did not get siri

    Is this a true assumption?

    Well aren't you the lucky one......Siri is only available on the iPad 3 and above and the mini.

    Have a look in settings - General - About and look for model......then google that number.

    That certainly is a bonus to have the 3!!
