How to Fix iPad Black Screen Issue?

by Alessia Martine

What will you do if your iPad gets attached on a “black screen” and it gives you no response? This will be a nightmare. Users can apply many fixes for making your iPad work again. Start with the most straightforward solutions and then we will move towards the tougher ones.


  1. Begin with the “power button”

You might have tried this already. Now try to press and hold Sleep/Wake button. Press it for a minimum of “30 seconds”. At least till you see the logo of Apple. Follow the given steps if it is  not working well.

  1. Consider changing the battery

Your iPad got a black screen issue? The most prominent issue can be depletion of battery. iPad has no power for displaying the symbol of lightning charging. Allow your iPad to charge for a minimum of 20 minutes or overnight. It is ok to use iPad during open charge, but as you encountered any issue, avoid using it while on charge.

  1. How to fix this battery issue?

If the issue is drained battery, then it is a recurring issue. Maybe the culprit is your battery. Just head over to Settings>Battery and go down for seeing the usage. Applications that consume battery will be at the top. The percentage will be written at side. If you notice that an app is draining more battery, then uninstall the app.

  1. Look for the Charging Port

You might haven’t noticed it yet, but this can be an issue. It is possible that the charging point is dirty and your equipment isn’t getting proper charging. Maybe dirt is accumulated inside the port. Whenever you push charging port to the device, you compress dirt. Take help of a wooden toothpick, non-metal tool etc. for dislodging the dust.

  1. Adjust screen brightness

Maybe iPad is on, but you are unable to see the display because the brightness is set too dim. Ask Siri to enhance the brightness of the screen by pulling up the bottom menu. Increase the intensity by moving the slider. On the uppermost right-hand list, swipe down for accessing the brightness of the screen.

  1. Go for a system restart

Restart your system, and you will get out of this issue quickly. Restarting will not erase data, but it will force a reboot. Just hold both Sleep/Wake buttons and Home button for 15 seconds at least. You will see the logo of Apple to see the iPad coming back to life.

  1. Burping the iPad

Sounding funny? But it is not, many of the iPad users have forums that burping helps in making connections. Ensure that the iPad is off before you try burping. Safely coat the back and front of your iPad by a towel. Pat the spine of iPad like a baby. Do this for a minute when you start unbundling iPad. Attempt to turn it on repeatedly. If your issue is fixed by now, then you might be having a hardware issue.

  1. System Update

Tried all the fixes above? iPad screen is still black, go for a system update. You just need to have a PC, Mac or computer including the freshest version if iTunes. Join the “iPad charger” to Computer and iPad. Go to iTunes and tap and continue both the Sleep/Wake and Home button. Don’t move till you start seeing recovery mode screen. Choose the update right when you look at the option to Update or Restore.

  1. System Restore

The last left resort is system restore. Doing this will leave you with no data on “your iPad”. Have a backup of everything on the cloud, then recover all data. Learn to recover all of your data by online sources else your data will be lost.
