The battery meter is stuck at 100% but the battery is pretty much 0% and it won't charge.

I thought at first it was an issue with the cable itself as nothing happens when I plug the USB into the computer but when I plug it into the mains it starts up but then turns itself off a minute later. I can get my head around what the problem is.

I don't really want to think about a third option but I have the feeling I may have to fork out for a new battery or new iPad altogether.

Can anyone help?

I had a similar issue with an iPod and I ended up charging it for 4 hours and then forced a restore by holding the home button and power button, it took 4 hours of charging before the device would stay on long enough. If you are that worried try talking to apple about it

Tried that and it doesn't work. I think the battery has gone dead which is sad :cry:

As a last option I will try taking it to my local apple store sometime this week to get their opinion but at this point I may have say farewell to it as I can't really fork out the money for it.

Replacement batteries aren't cheap for iDevices either. It's £85 through Apple although I'd warrant you can find it a lot cheaper somewhere else

Ok I tried holding the buttons for 30 secs instead of 15 it responded like it was going to reset but when I unplugged from the mains to switch it over to my laptop through itunes it went blank.

I will leave it in for a bit if it needs a charge but I'm unsure if its charging it.

I have the feeling I might have to buy an adaptor that allows me to charge through mains and plug in USB like my old mp3 player.
