My iPad 2 16gb wifi will not turn on

I used it on 2/24 with no problems, plugged it in to charge, on 2/25 the ipad will not even power on. I've called apple care, did all the home+power button 'quick fixes' and still nothing works. When I plug my ipad into my macbook, the computer will not even recognize the device.

The iPad was jailbroken and not updated from iOS 5.whatever, I don't know if that has anything to do with the problem.

Is this a good question?

You don't state if the charger did recharge the unit ok. Low power/dead battery is a cause for no starting (I do not think the fact that it is jailboke does). . . Apple should have told you that. At this point you have nothing to lose by a DIY battery swap (if that's too advanced for you find a shop or someone who will do this for you).

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Adam, see if this will help:"

1. Check the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons. Are they damaged, preventing the device from powering up?

2. Visually inspect iPad for any damage.

3. Check the 30-pin port for debris or corrosion.

4. Check 10W USB power adapter. If you see the “not charging” text next to the battery icon, the 10W USB adapter or connection is not providing enough power to

charge the iPad. Test with a known good 10W USB power adapter.

5. Check USB cable. Remove USB hubs. Plug iPad directly into computer’s USB port. Test with known good cable. Note: The iPad 30-pin USB cable is interchangeable with

the iPod/iPhone 30-pin USB cable.

6. Make sure the iPad has the latest software updates -- Use iTunes to check for the latest version of the iOS

7. Charge iPad battery

• Connect to a power outlet and charge with known good iPad 10W USB Power Adapter for 10 minutes

8. Reset:

• Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

9. Restore:

• Restore iPad with iTunes. (This restores the iOS)

• Click on Restore in the Summary tab

• If you can’t Restore, go to Recovery Mode

• If you can’t Recover the iPad go to next step" (from the manual) which points to a possibly faulty battery or other logic board issues.

I am having similar issues.... i accidently did 8 but wasn't able to go further as the screen went black again but did see it was 100% charged

What spacificly is my issue is the screen shows NO Response to Pushing the Home button or touching the screen. Or it's not consistent no signs of damage I can hear the ping sound when I plug it in and sometimes it will show a flash of blueish screen instead of the usual black when it's off.... is this like a game system 3 Blue rings?
