    I bought a 64 gig +3g iPad today and I suspect it is doa. When I try and setup by connecting to the PC, it is not being recognised by iTunes 10.1 and it simply won't power up. When I try and charge it using the power adapter, the Apple logo briefly appears (for a few seconds), the screen blanks out and then the logo reappears and so the cycle continues. I've tried to reset, but there's just no life.

    I have a second iPad that works perfectly with the PC in question, so I therefore suspect it can't be related to the USB port on the PC or the version of iTunes. What could be worng?

    Or stop by an Apple Store.

    If you aren't near either, call 1-800-APL-CARE for Apple tech support
