I have a 3rd Gen iPad that is having problems turning on. When attempting to turn it on it shows the apple symbol for a while as if it were turning on, however the screen goes black and is presumably off again. Continued attempts yield the same result. When trying the hard reset via the home/power buttons, the apple symbol appears for about three seconds and then goes black again. Still does not turn on. When plugged in, the iPad has the same result from trying to be turned on normally. Does not register on the computer as being plugged in. These are the only fixes I've been able to find and they do not appear to work. I haven't been able to find a similar problem either. Any help would be appreciated.
