How to Fix iPad Not Turning On Issue?

by Olivia Jones

What will you do if you see the black screen on your iPad Mini? Don’t worry as you can get your iPad back in no time. There is a straightforward fix if your iPad mini isn’t turning on after pressing the Home button. Bring it back to life in no time just by following these steps:


Is it even turned on?

Your iPad mini could be off if the home switch isn’t responding well.  Tap the Wake/Sleep button at iPad top and wait till you see the iPad Logo.

Is the display too dark?

Sometimes the iPad may be on, but you can’t see anything because of the dim light. Consider taking your iPad to some dark room for adjusting brightness. If in  case you have updated to iOS 12, then wipe downwards from the top right hand edge. If you are having iOS 11 or the earlier model, then swipe upwards from the bottom.

The battery

When you place your “iPad mini” below, then the apps in the background have still been draining the battery. You can do one thing that you can delete the entire battery without even using the device. Wait for sometime till you fill your “iPad” to the charger. See at upper right-hand corner when you see the battery icon. Users can see what has been occurring earlier and later you fill the charger to the socket. What you need to look for is given below:

The battery is really low if the battery symbol appears red at the place of green. Allow it to charge without using the iPad until the charger turns green. iPad will recover the strength of the battery.

If the display is black and the users can’t see the red array, then iPad mini could not hold sufficient power for exposing the state of the battery. Let it charge for some more time to allow the battery to recover.

If there is a flash before the screen turns out to be dark, then the iPad mini doesn’t have sufficient power for charging. Ensure that you have been using a USB power adapter of at least 5W. If you have taken your iPad Mini to some heated car or down in some cold temperature, then iPad may close down or decline to charge. Get your iPad mini to room temperature before charging or starting repeatedly.

Look for the charging port.

You saw any dust or the dirt that has been blocking your charging port then the connection can restrict the charger from securing the attachment so that iPad may charge well. Use a wood toothpick for washing out charging pot.
