    only had ipad2 for a year & 2 months it has died so i sent it for service via ups back to apple they told me it sounded like problems with hardware as the back light still came on but nothing on screen done all the resets, wiped it clean started again nothin!!!
    apple sent me mail to say they will not service it because it has non apple parts in it when i asked what the parts were they told me antenna so they washed there hands of me funny that its not left me all year and someone has sneaked a hooky antenna in there wtf!!!!

    On a serious note are there any apple store around you? I would take it there ask to speak to a manager, show them your work order, hopefully if you plead you case they will swap it.

    If there are non-Apple parts in the iPad, it's possible the shop that sold you the products cheated you by not providing a brand new device. Sounds like it was refurbished by the shop or a third-party. You could take that letter from Apple to the shop that sold you the iPad and demand your money back or a replacement.
