    Make sure it's been plugged into the charger it came wiht for few hours first, just to make sure it has plenty of battery. Then give the soft reset described in the link.

    If that does not work you'll probably have to do a full reset via iTunes, but I recommend calling Apple's Tech Support first.

    The apple logo is blinking on and off on my Ipad too.

    It is new and has never been turned on. I charged it for 2 hours. It only blinks with the power cord plugged into the electric socket. It doesn't blink when plugged into usb.

    While plugged into the wall and then holding down the home and sleep button for 10 seconds the picture telling you to plug it into your usb appears, but as soon as I unplug it from the wall the screen goes blank.

    I have tried every reset. I think the battery doesn't work. I think it's a lemon. It's a good thing it's probably too late to call apple tech right now because I wouldn't be very nice.

    Ok, if I'm repeating what you already know, just ignore me.

    In order to activate your iPad you need to first downlaod and install the latest version of iTunes from Apple's web site. Then with iTunes running plug your iPad into the computer and follow the instructions in iTunes.

    If that does not work, then yes you need to call Apple Support.
