    If the touch screen on the iPad is not accepting any inputs, there is no way to access the info on the iPad. Being as the iPad 1 is getting old in computer terms, it may be time to think about upgrading. You can back up your iPad 1 in iTunes on your computer and use that backup to set up a replacement iPad.

    You could use the cable set to connect your iPad to your TV and mirror the screen image on the TV. If the touchscreen still works,you can still access the content on your iPad.
