This is not about the iPad not charging over a USB connection. My device refuses to charge both over USB and the charger that came with it.
I got my iPad 2 with iOS 4.3.5 just about 10 days ago. It has had 2 recharge cycles without problems, now on the third it refuses to charge. Connecting it to a USB port on a PC it shows "Not Charging" as it always did, but syncs fine. Connecting it with the charger, the battery icon shows the lightning symbol, indicating that the device thinks it's charging, but even after 10+ hours the battery status never increases by even 1%.
Researching on other sites and asking friends who own iPads, it seems most people who are having charging problems report that their iPad never even shows the lightning bolt. Mine, however, definitely thinks it's charging, it just doesn't. I tried the following:
- Tried charging with a different cable and charger pack from a friend's iPad.
- Did a soft reset
- Did a hard reset
- Did a complete restore back to factory settings (which updated to iOS 5.0.1)
However, I still cannot charge the battery. Is there anything I can still try, short from bringing the device in?
