Why won't my iPad mini turn on?

I was on an app and it crashed. The screen went grey, so I tried to restart my iPad by holding down the power button and the home button simultaneously. My iPad turned off, but it never turned on again.

My iPad mini is new, I bought it less than six months ago and it is in perfect condition. I have had no previous problems, and haven't dropped it or anything.

I tried holding the power and home button simultaneously for 30+ seconds and still nothing has happened. I have charged it, held just the power button down, just the home button, the volume buttons, holding the power button for five seconds, and the home button as well for 15 more but still nothing. I have also tried to connect it to my laptop, but the screen is still just black.

I don't know what to do. Please help.

Could you try and put it into DFU mode at all in your computer? Keep in mind you'll lose everything if you do this. Hold power and home button while its connected and after 10-15 seconds let go of the power but keep holding the home button. Otherwise you could try and connect it to a program called iReboot and see if that works, either that or 3uTools

I tried, but it doesn't detect it when I plug my iPad into my laptop. It wont connect to iTunes, or detect its plugged in on iReboot

Have you tried keeping it plugged into a wall charger to see if it will power on with apple logo again?

Make sure that the wall charger is an iPad charger (5V 2.0A or higher rated) and you are using a good quality charging cable (basically original).
