Three days ago when I tried to use my iPad it did not turn on (black screen). I fixed it to the charger and nothing happened. After one day of trying I decided to search online. And yes, there is a very popular solution, intact a whole Apple page dedicated to how to fix it (https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT201412)

Holding the Sleep/Wake button along with the Home button for 10 seconds fixes this.

However the thing is, my home button is broken. Even though I still tried, knowing its broken for the past few days it gave me the expected result which is - didn't turn on.

Tried fixing to the laptop/iTunes. Nothing happens.

How can I fix this? Without the home button working

I do not have Apple care for this product as it is an old iPad (iPad 2)

  • You can still have Apple fix an iPad if it doesn't have AppleCare...
