Completely Dead Ipad Air 2

Hello everybody,

so I have an Ipad Air 2 wifi that suddenly stopped working. The device didn't fall or get damaged with water. The only problem it had was not charging when using other cables than the one that came with it(I have 2 original lightning cabels and a hdmi adapter, I have no problem using them on my IPhone 6 however with the Ipad they do their connecting function but the battery doesn't get charged). So the device does not show any reaction to charging and doesn't connect to any Pc/Mac. It also refuse the reset. The only thing that happens is the right side gets warm when I connect it with the charger. Apple's employees were not helpful and only suggested to replace the Ipad with a new one for 340€.

My question is did this problem happen to any one before? What can be the cause and is there any solution.

Exactly the same issue with me. Also only charged with certain chargers. I have just taken mine to the iPad repair store, who have come back with: they don't open factory sealed devices so they can't open to tell me what the problem is, which I knew already, that the ipad wont power on and wont charge. Mine is only 16 months old. Apple doesn't recommend any other repair centre that will open and look, so I'm quite stuck.

If the Lightning cables work on other devices but not your iPad, then it's safe to say that you have a problem within your iPad. It could be just the Lightning port or it could be the charge circuit on the logic board. You could follow this guide to open your device a take a look-see but both of these potential repairs will require micro-soldering so it's not a DIY repair.

Is it safe to open the device? Many people says that it is very risky and can damage the screen.

Well, that's partly true. If you're not careful you can do a lot of damage very quickly and the cost of Air 2 replacement screens is quite high. That said, look at the this guide (iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi Display Assembly Replacement) to see if you are comfortable doing this. Once you open, you will need new adhesive to seal it back properly.

That was realy helpful. I think I'll try it. Thank you very much.
