Then, try and charge your iPad—make sure you connect to a wall outlet—not a USB port on a computer or other device. And if possible, use the original charger that came with your iPad. Let your iPad charge overnight or at least 10 hours when connected to the wall outlet. If your iPad continues not to charge, try another charger and cable.

Once your Home Screen appears, press the power button and slide to power off. Now, leave the iPad on the charger for at least 12 hours or more, without using it or powering it on. If it turns on by itself, press the power button again to power and slide off.

It sounds like you need to recalibrate your battery. That means leaving it on and unplugged until it automatically shuts itself down. Before you do anything, back up your data via iCloud, iTunes, or whatever you use to back up.

Then, drain your battery entirely. Make sure you have auto-play ON in your video streaming app, so it plays continuously. After it shuts down, try starting it up. Once it reaches this point, wait another hours and then plug it into the wall outlet for charging. If it turns on, turn it off by pressing the power button and sliding off. If you ever see it on, turn it off again. After all that charging, leave the iPad plugged in and power up. Keep holding these two buttons until you see the Apple Logo on screen, then release.

I had little hope in this fix, but it indeed gave the battery enough juice to start taking a charge. I am convinced that no other troubleshooting method would have resulted in my iPad battery being jump-started into taking a charge and powering the device on because I tried them all.

It must feel very frustrating to be unable to charge your iPad mini. Since you mention that the cable you are using came with your iPad mini, it should be certified—provided you purchased this new and not pre-owned. So our first thoughts are to see if your iPad mini charges when using another charger. Do you have a friend or relative that has an older iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone so you can check if your device charges?

They also sell adapters from pin to lightning. A lot of products out there also have the older pin connectors, including alarm clocks, car adapters, and other things so ask around—even if folks have newer iDevices, they may have older accessories that use the pin connectors.

Try charging on another charger for at least 30 minutes. Apple Stores will definitely allow and Apple retailers, like Best Buy, often allow you to check and charge. Another thought is to check is the power port is dirty or filled with dust etc. We have a recent article on how to clean lightning ports —the same principals hold true with the older pin connectors.

So give your iPad 2 port a good cleaning—this might just be the issue. Tried doing the 2 button reset but nothing happens. No apple logo, nothing. What do I do now? Ipad is in good shape and i have a good working charger but when i charge it it never shows the apple sign what shall i do. My iPad Air 2 just died. Last night it needed charged. I put it on the charger all night nothing. Changed chargers and plugs all day still nothing. What is the problem?!! Lithium batteries have protection against over-discharging, they do this by breaking the circuit if the voltage drops too low to prevent further drain.

Unfortunately, once this has triggered, you can no longer put charge back into the battery because the battery is disconnected internally, so no matter how long you leave the phone on charge, it remains disconnected and flat. You only need to get the voltage in the battery to raise a percent or two to reconnect the protection circuit so that it will charge again and you can do that by warming up the battery.

Heat it for a good mins so that the hear soaks right through the battery and it feels hot to the touch, this will raise the internal voltage enough to reconnect the protection circuit. Immediately reconnect the battery into the phone and put it on charge. Hope it helps you. This is what I found on the net and it worked for me and several others that posted their results.
