Wifi Does Not Detect Any Access Points
Got an iPad 1 3G Wifi from a friend but it won't hold a charge and can't detect any wifi access points, but I can see that the 3G is working as it is showing AT&T.
Here's what I've done so far:
1. Replaced Battery
2. Complete reset to factory settings, as in purged from scratch.
The battery now charges but drains out fast, and still no Wifi detected. I thought about replacing the wifi chip but not sure if this would fix it. Any direction will be much appreciated.
If you replaced the battery with a brand new one, then it seems a little abnormal that it is still loosing charge fast. I wonder if there is a sort of short in the device. Are there any dents on the back or side that could have moved something around inside the device. There is a similar problem I have found on iPhones. If you put a longer screw where one of the grounding screws goes the battery drains quickly and you have no sound, WiFi, or 3G. I wonder if you may have a similar issue. I would check to make sure that everything inside is firmly seated. Did the previous owner tell you when this problem started happening, after a drop, exposure to water?
