Well, guess I now have an official paperweight or something to use as a door jam. Damn thing went blank on me and won't come back up. iPad original. I was downloading some free apps from the app store. Walked into the kitchen and came back. Damn screen was blank. Plenty of power on battery. Was at 75%. Can't get it to come back on. Ideas other than using as the paperweight or doorjam? Never mind. Found solution in another thread after it showed up as a similar post having posted mine. GB.
