    I had my IPad on, then turned it off. A minute later, I went to turn it on again and it wouldn't turn on. I plugged it in thinking it might have a low battery and it a) won't turn on even though plugged in and b) didn't make the little noise that it usually does when it is plugged in and charging. It is the original IPad and about 4 months old. Help???!!!

    Have you tried resetting by holding the down home and power button for a few seconds?

    Takes more than a few seconds. Hold them down until the Apple Logo appears. This usually takes about 15 - 20 seconds, though I've heard others suggest up to 60.

    Thanks

    I did see that in another thread and tried it. It did work, though I'm still a bit worried about why it just kind of died in the first place. Thanks for the feedback. For my instance, it took about 15 seconds. :)

    Don't worry about it. It happens to all iPads occasionally and isn't an indication that there's anything seriously wrong. Only start to worry if it becomes a frequent problem.

    Have you tried a reset?


    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.
