Screen flickers when plugged into AC power, no boot.

Whenever I plug in the AC Adapter into my customers iPad, the screen flickers once every 3 seconds or so. I've tried doing a hard reset with it and nothing. I've opened her up and see no noticeable damage whatsoever. I've tried another adapter known good and the same problem happens. Any troubleshooting i'm missing? I still have the ipad open currently. I wonder if reseating the dock port will fix something.. Any help would be mucho appreciated!

I would however it seems to be the dock connector possibly. I don't have an option to turn it off and on. It automatically turns on once AC power is plugged into it. Holding the power button down does nothing with the ipad. However, if I hold the power button AND home button, the flickers stop until i release one or both of the buttons.
