    Hi !
    I got the new ipad 2 and it was great , until now. After several weeks using it, I had problems getting the mail. It did not run, even the contacts application did not open.

    Following the troubleshooting instructions, I resetted it. I did hold the power buttom down for a few seconds and up, but the Apple icon never appeared. I reapeated the process saveral times, but the Ipad is black-out- dead. Iam worried, seriously and need help.

    You did hold down the power button and the home button until the Apple Logo appears?

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Minimum holding time should be 7seconds. If that doesn't help, the battery might be dead, otherwise the iPad needs a replacement.

    Plug it into a wall outlet. If you here the "beedeep" you should be okay as the battery died. Otherwise the device is bricked and you'll need to return it.
