iPad does not turn on, rapidly disconnects, and does not charge?
I have a first generation iPad mini I got broken from a friend, and it has a multitude of problems. At first, I thought it was just a dead flat battery, that's what the symptoms pointed to, so I replaced the battery. Once I did this, I discovered some more problems:
The ipad does not seem to charge. For the first few days it did, but got very hot while plugged in and eventually stopped altogether.
The ipad does not turn on at all, no "dead battery" screen, can't do recovery mode, nothing.
The ipad, during those first days when the new battery would charge, it would detect as in recovery mode whenever plugged into itunes, and prompt a reset.
And now whenever I plug it into the computer, it just keeps connecting and disconnecting, showing up in itunes as in recovery mode for a split second before disconnecting and connecting again, all the while making that annoying USB connected jingle in windows.
I'm assuming the board is fried in some fashion, but I'm no expert and I figure somebody here probably is, I hope I've given enough information, if anybody has any ideas they'd be much appreciated.
Is this a good question?
