What are the possible causes for this hardware failure?
My ipad isn't recognized by any PC, it's just shown up as an Unknown Device in the device manager ...
I did all the possible solutions either from google or apple support .
so I went to apple store and they said it's a hardware failure, and my warranty was expired so they did nothing.
So my question is:
- Can anyone tell me what hardware failure can do this problem ? (is it the dock connector or the logic board or what ????)
Thanks any way.
I would certainly try a replacement dock connector. If you have tried different cords and different computers and none will recognize it correctly then my next guess would be the dock. I fix iPhones and other apple products for a living and we do see a lot of problems caused by dock connectors going bad. Should be a cheap part. Only difficult part is the labor. There are guides here that will show you how to open it up.
Hope this helps!
