    Get a charger that works with the device. The one you have is not supported by the iOS version you have, there is nothing you can change on the iPad side.

    No, it wouldn't be OS6. Is this the charger that came with your iPad? If it is check the docking points on the charger and iPad and make sure they are free of debris of any kind. Also make sure the cable is fully into the plug.

    If still not working...may just be your charger is broken. Try a reset of your iPad and see if it makes a difference.

    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.

    Let us know how you go.
