    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Give this a try, the iPad doesn't have to be on for it to work
    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset, let us know how it goes.

    I did it once when my iPad wouldn't turn on and it took about 25 seconds for the Apple logo to appear.
    What do you mean by the iPad is blinking?

    Are you sure it's charging at all, do you have another cable? If you cant do a reset, I think a trip to the Apple
    Store may be in order. Hopefully someone else will chime in with some other thoughts here.
