    I went to charge my iPad 3 earlier on this morning, to be greeted with nothing, so I try another wire, nothing, and another one and you get my point. (I then thought to try my iPhone, still nothing, and did with the other wires and nothing), I asked brothers for iPod Touch, so I can check to see if its the charger plugs thats the problem, it works fine, so I know the plug and the wire arent the problem.

    So now, I am left without an iPad and an iPhone. Is there a simple fix? do I need to take it to the Apple store to be looked at? should I send it back to where I got it from to be looked at? Can I do the problem at home? could it be dirty connections? or something more sinister?

    iPad is under warrenty with some people, cant think of there name, sorry. [iPhone isnt insured (well it is if it gets stolen/damaged), but not under warrenty]
    So for all the questions, the iPad 3 is my baby (next to my parrot) lol.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Your iPad 3 is still under warranty from Apple. Take it to the nearest Apple store for a Genius appointment. Any warranty from a reseller supplements, not replaces the Apple warranty.

    Yes, absolutely, it could be the fault of a non Apple charger not communicating properly.

    It does not matter where you bought your iPad, Apple provide the warranty, and is the best place for any issues that may arise.

    Just though to let you know, it was the wire that was a problem, 3rd party wires are useless, so need to keep this wire out of the way of parrot or else shell be costing me a lot more then she does. Lol.

    Thanks for the help :).

    Do not use third party wire as that will cause short circuit in charging socket on you ipad and iPhone. We have many people coming in for repairs of charging sockets due to use of third party cables. Short Circuit can also damage your board if u r too unlucky.
