    Don't think you've missed anything, but I'm no expert. Hopefully someone will come along who can shed some light on this.

    Sounds like a hardware problem, when you say you replaced the battery , was this done by an Apple technician?
    I ask because a decent techie would have checked the charging circuit and the old battery.

    Got the same issue.. not sure about 3 percent as it never gets enough power to turn on. It does say its charging when I plug it in. Its definitely not the charger as the other 2 iPads are charging off same thing. Hope someone has a suggestion...

    Check to see if it's still under warrantee, and contact Apple. If it is under warrantee, they should replace it for free. If not, I believe a battery replacement costs about $100.
