New to the forums, very limited Apple user, but I like DIY repairs. I have an old ipad 2 I don't want to get rid of (I have kids) that's been a paper weight for a while, but would like to get it back up and running. At the time it died, battery was running low, but not critical. It basically glitched, froze up with pixelated lines across the screen, and then immediately powered off. Since then it won't "charge" (or at least indicate its charging), can't be reset, and cannot be recognized by iTunes. So it's not powering at all. Tried a hard reset, charged overnight, and tried recovery mode through iTunes, but no response at all from the device or itunes. No response from the screen via hard reset or recovery mode and no repose from iTunes after attempted power on, so that rules out the lcd. Used different chargers for multiple charge attempts, so that rules out cables. iPad had no problem charging prior, so I'm down to a bunk battery or possibly a fried logic board(?). Question is, between those two parts, is there anything I'm missing? I plan to start with a battery replacement and test, then move to replace the logic board if that fails. Logic board looks almost too small, so it feels like there's something else I'm missing. Any direction from repair experts is greatly appreciated!
