    Hi l'm no expert but until they wake up, l guess you know that the idea would have been to return your iPad to Apple for help.
    Anyway job done, if you had it connected to the wall socket is it possible that the plug or cable are damaged?
    Maybe you have another you can try or clean any fluff from the cable

    When the iPad got very hot after the fall, it could have been the result of some internal damage. Normally I'd recommend a Genius Bar appointment at an Apple Store but since you've already attempted a repair, Apple will no longer diagnose or service it. Are there any third party repair shops in your area where you can get a diagnostic done? This would save wasting money on unnecessary parts.

    I know this doesn't really help but did the iPad in question have a case on it to protect it from falls? I'm not a expert but judging from the fact that the iPad got hot hot I'm guessing it overheated and that might have damaged the battery.

    It will depend, but you could try connecting it to your Mac or PC and see if it appears in iTunes.

    You will need a screen to connect with iTunes.

    I thought iPad batteries are not replaceable looking at iPads in general it would be hard to get to the battery.

    They can be replaced, but it's not easy and 95% of the time it is not the problem and is replaced in vain. Usual power issues are the cause of charge ports or board level damage/failure.
