    I charged it to 100% two nights ago on the same charger I've been using since I bought it. The charger being a 30pin connecter with a lighting bolt adapter. Always has worked fine for my iPad, and even for my iPhone 4s without the adapter.

    I tried to wake the iPad from sleep only for it to show the dead battery sign. I thought all was fine so I plugged it into the same charger.

    It notices the cord but doesn't show it being charged. It also flashes white before going black.

    I thought maybe the charger wasn't plugged in but it actually is because my iPhone was recognized and charged immediately.

    Then I thought it was the adapter, so I tried it with the lighting cable it, no luck.

    Plugged it into my Mac, it won't even recognize it.

    I'm starting to worry that there is nothing I can do. I don't live anywhere close to an Apple store, closest one is over 5 hours away so that's no help.

    I would appreciate any advise, thanks in advance.

    Plug it in to what you believe is a good charging setup and wait about fifteen minutes, then hold the home and sleep/wake button both down for about fifteen seconds and see if that revives it.
