    If there is a forum on this I'm sorry. My wife's iPad sometimes will show the iPad dead and won't take charge. Even when it has a full battery. It won't reset and if you try I get the same thing.. Then all of sudden it turns on and runs fine and shows a full charge. Could this be hard ware or soft ware?

    I guess it might be a battery problem!
    Have you tried considering another charger or another charging point as such?

    It could be either. If you can, try putting it into recovery mode and running an iTunes restore. This will force a fresh copy of iOS to be installed and weed out a software issue. Set it up as a new device and use it for a bit to see if the problem stops. If the issue persists it's hardware.

    What model of iPad are you using? How long have you had it? Apple's iPad batteries are designed to retain 80% of their original capacity for 1,000 full charge cycles. After that you're on borrowed time. 100% battery level doesn't say much when the battery doesn't have any capacity left.

    Yes I have, that is one of the first things I tried was different chargers. Thanks sometimes the obvious is the easiest to over look.
