Ipad mini won't turn on? Tried everything?

Hiya,

So, I have an ipad mini. I've had it for six months and it was working fine twelve hours ago. I fell asleep, and when I woke up and tried to turn it on, it didn't. It was plugged in all night because it was on 4% the last time I saw it was working.

I tried replugging it, it didn't work.

I tried using the iphone 5 cord, it didn't work.

I tried pressing the home button and the power button simutaneously, it was still unresponsive.

I tried plugging it into my computer and trying to restore it.. but there's another problem. It won't sync to my computer, so itunes isn't able to read it at all.

Yes, I tried reinstalling itunes and it still remained unresponsive.

Any idea how it can be fixed? If at all?

Thanks,

Shiori

I have a first generation iPad which is indestructible and too an iPad mini which I have had for approx 14 months. Yesterday the mini died. I have tried all the recommendations with no resolution. It appears that from the 392 posting s on IFIXIT that surely this has to be a known issue by Apple. I am disappointed that no announcement has been made by Apple to my knowledge . I'll be taking the mini critter into Apple to hear my verdict! Long live the First Generation!

I have the same problem. I went and put my ipad mini in my room and after one minute I went back in and tried to turn it on but it wouldn't turn on so I put it on charge but it would work and I have tried the power and home button so. What do I do?

Looks like this is a common thing. Here are my recommendations to troubleshoot this:

1. Do a hard reset. Hold power and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears. If this fixes it, great!

2. Put the iPad in DFU mode. Connect it to your computer, hold down the power button for 5 seconds. While still holding power, hold down the home button for 15 seconds. Once the apple logo appears, release the power button while still holding down the home button. The "Connect to iTunes" screen should appear. iTunes should prompt you to restore, which you should do.

3. If those options do not work, its going to be an internal issue. I would never recommend going to Geek Squad. They don't know anything. Apple will only swap out your device or "upgrade" it for a fee. A good repair shop will be able to fix this. Apple and Best Buy have great stores. They just are not professional repair shops.

4. This one is for repair shops. This is either going to be a bad charging port (likely), a bad battery (not likely if this was abrupt and not a process), or a bad power IC. Connecting the iPad to power and running through the power schematic shouldn't take long at all. There should be an obvious failure at some point. Unless its water damage, in which case you have yourself a nice rabbit hole.

#2 above, Great tip ! It has worked for me on 2 occasions. For me the computer was on (Siri kept randomly asking me what I said), but the screen was dark.

Thanks,

I have had the same problem. #2 fixed mine. I noticed that my iPad mini only has this problem when I have a magnetic case on it while charging. Not sure if it is related but I won't be using that case anymore.

mine would not turn on or do anything; I found this answer and it worked for me. "There are a couple of possible causes for this kind of behavior, but in the majority of cases you can solve it by doing a reset. Just hold down the Power button and the Home button simultaneously for 10 seconds. You’ll know it worked when you see the Apple logo." http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/ipad...

The battery almost never fails in iPad mini. The Power ic fails commonly for no reason--not feasible to repair. But also the charging logic ic, U2 chip, fails---this means the iPad will power on with a new battery, but can't charge. That chip can be replaced.

I have the same issue with my iPad Air. It stopped respond to the charger. Then, I changed the charging port, and the device started to respond to the charger but it won't start charging. It started to show a flashing (Connect to charger screen) each 2-3 seconds. After that, I tried to press the Home with Power buttons to make a hard reset without luck but after keep pressing the both buttons for about a minute, it stopped showing anything at the screen. It like a dead iPad Air. Yesterday, I charged the battery externally fro about an hour then I tried to turn it on. It turned with 3% battery charging, but it is still doesn't respond to any charger (PC, Wall, itunes). Any suggestion please?

por

This is starting to be really common in the iPad Air. I don't think it is a simple as changing the U2 chip. I have a stack of Air's just like that here and I'm knee deep in the schematics trying to figure it out. Post back if you make any progress on this :)

@jessabethany Have you figured anything out? i bought an iPad air gen 1 that didn't power on thinking i could fix it.

Did you pay for the unit they exchanged?

That’s what I might do because my IPad isn’t that old. So I’m kinda worried.☹️

It's an issue with the battery being too cold. Warm ur iPad up and try again. Fixes mine every morning and it's not even that cold. Mine only acts up on a full charge or if it gets extremely cold

Thank you!! This works for me. I just put my ipad mini under my arm to warm it and in less than a minute I can turn it on again. I'd like to know why it happens though!

First have a look inside the dock connector and check for any dirt or other objects and clean them out if there is any

Second I would recommend leaving the iPad mini on a AC wall charger for a few hours and then have another look to see if the iPad is working

Failing all that, its time to send your iPad back to Apple as it will still be covered by the warranty and since you have not damaged it, you will not want to pay out for any repairs

Let me know how you get on and which method leads to success, if you need any more help please ask

Cheers

I'm currently having the same issue. It worked fine this morning, and when I tried rebooting it (internet problems), it wouldn't restart. The apple screen keeps coming up, and nothing. We went to Best Buy (Geek Squad) and they couldn't figure it out, but told us to take it home and plug it into our computer and do a restore. Well, iTunes won't recognize my iPad mini, because of 'trust' issues. We're taking to Apple store tomorrow.

My iPad Mini 2 has a weird charging bug. If it hits 100% on the charger, it sometimes won't start, showing a dead battery. I've tried all of these solutions. Getting it to restart is very difficult, and seems only to work when the battery is actually depleted. I can only assume it has something to do with the firmware that prevents overcharging.

@kamaldrawil , I have one in front of me now I am working on. If it will power on with a charged battery, you will need to have the charging Port (Make sure you clean yours out to see if it is clogged) or IC replaced. If it does not power on with a charged battery (as in my case) it is the PMIC most likely. It will require Micro Soldering which is not a DIY repair.

what happens if you try to connect it to iTunes? if nothing happens when you connect it to your computer it is most likely going to be that the battery is dead and needs to be replaced.

I have the same issue on my mini iPad. Charged it up overnight but zero yesterday. Reboot not making any difference, and trying to charge from computer isn't working either, my mac is not seeing that anything is plugged in. It isn't the charger as both my leads and chargers are working fine on my iPhone. I took it to local Apple store who could test the iPad to see if it was receiving any charge. It wasn't. Also nothing on the iPad can be retrieved (unlike a computer) other than what has already been backed up to your computer. They did say however that even if my warranty has expired I may be entitled to a replacement. This adds to some other comments on the internet which refer to it being a design fault. I will be taking my receipt in on Monday and see what happens...

I bought my ipad mini end of 2013, and i used it less than month, cause it suddenly turned off and didn't charge. Now it completely dead, and it cannot recovered, neither get in DFU mode. I think it probably caused by CPU defect, if it is, it might be a manufacture defect. Last time it showed error messages in black screen,

panic (cpu 0 caller 0x<ptr>): underfined kernel instruction

r0: 0x00000006 r1: 0x81232d1c r:0x01233444 r3: 0xeeba8d9d...

problem: ipad mini 4 not charging or booting up. red lines with battery symbol and apple symbol would cycle over and over again and nothing would happen. Ipad was plugged in.

I tried holding the sleep and home buttons for long period and nothing happened and then holding the same buttons and then releasing them over and over again but nothing happened.

I tried restore and update in recovery mode and dfu mode in itunes but neither worked, just errors every time.

I even tried putting the ipad in the freezer for an hour.

(By the way... if you are stuck in itunes connect mode after a failed install or restore, u can download fonelab which will take u out of itune or recovery mode)

I tried different chargers and cords and leaving the ipad plugged in over night.

Nothing worked so i decided i would get some revenge and beat the $@$* out of it. I put the ipad on the floor so i could hit the screen with my heel. just kind of fooling around but a bit annoyed too. So i hit the thing on the screen while it was plugged in and i kid you not... it paused for a moment on the apple logo screen and then booted up.

so, clearly the problem is a hardware issue. I updated the operating system after that which didn't help anything. And now the ipad will turn on and i can use it but it doesnt charge and i have to use it in the same position and not move it too much or it powers off.

Im going to look for solution for it not charging now that it turns on.

The problem is obviously and most likely the charge port or some other hardware issue.
