It seems my trusty iPad 2 has sudddenly died. At first I thought it was my charging cable which was in a bit rough shape so I went ahead and bought a new one, but my iPad continues to refuse to charge or turn on. I gently cleaned the charging port and did multiple hard resets to no avail. I get the flashing red battery screen along with the lightning bolt/30 pin connector icon and nothing happens. This remains the case whether I have the connector plugged in to the iPad or not. So I wonder what I should do now. I am suspecting my iPad could have some water damage after some recent exposure to water but it certainly was not anything major so nothing is certain. Any suggestions what I can do with my now dead iPad or ways to get it to work again would be appreciated. It seems I will be definitely buying the iPad Air 2 now.
