Title:

Why won't my iPad turn on?

Text:

Since my iPad turned itself off, while I was using it, I’ve tried resetting it and connecting to computer- neither have helped. When I hold in power and home button the logo screen flickers on, for varying amounts of time and sometimes with part of the screen darker then the rest, and then turns off again before the lock screen.

Update: I managed to turn it on for a few moments, the screen was very dark except around the home button where it was lit up more- it then switched itself off again.
