iPad suddenly shut down and will not turn on!
Hi! I made an account just to find some help for this.
I was using my iPad, everything was completely fine until I pressed an app to open a game, and the screen suddenly went black. at first I thought the app had just crashed, which does happens from time to time, but it has not turned on ever since.
I have tried holding down both the power + home button for over a minute; nothing. not even the apple logo or charging symbol… :C
- the battery was at least over 60% when it shut down, there hasn’t been any previous issues with battery or anything else if I can recall… but I’ve probably overcharged it a few times in the past.
- nothing pops up if I connect it to a laptop, I cannot put it in recovery mode or backup the device through iTunes…
- when charging, the device still produces heat… I can also hear white noise coming from it, as if it’s still running.
- I have charged it for well over 24 hours, still nothing. (is it possible I’m just preserving its dead corpse…) i’ve unplugged it as of now.
why has this happened? This iPad has been functioning perfectly fine for the past 2 years until this. I don’t recall ever dropping it. is it a problem with the screen or software? have I lost everything? D: i want to do everything short of taking it to the store to get it repaired.
please, please help. thank you.
