Even if it does not look like it is charging and even though it may be fully charged charge it using a different wall outlet than you normally do (a different room is best) for at least 10 minutes.
Do not skip that even if it is fully charged from you already plugging it in, it is important to do it.
It sounds like the firmware may be frozen try this and let me know the results hold the power switch for at least 60 seconds.
Try this at least 6 times.
The firmware can sometimes get frozen the same way that a computer will occasionally.
It worked ! I put it on in another room and for the first time it showed up a picture of the battery, with it very low. I left it on for several hours and it showed the battery as full, and it is going well.
Thanks a lot.
Are you any good with iPads?
