any idea what's wrong with my ipad: i haven't used my ipad (I) for more than a year, now when it is connected to wall charger, it flashes the apple logo when you press the home button. if you keep pressing the" connect to tunes' screen appears. once you remove it from the wall charger to connect it the mac USB it goes blank "black screen". while connected to the USB (i ve left it over night) no apple logo appears when you press the home button, just black screen. (i ve noticed infrequent flickering on the screen but that is all) of course itunes doesn't recognize it. Is it the battery or sofware issue that needs restore in recovery mode. the problem i cannot get in the recovery mode as it goes dead once you remove it from the charger. I just want to make sure it is not software issue before sending it for battery replacement.
