The iPad has gone through several generations thanks to Apple. Some of the most recent gadgets include a ton of high-end features and specifications, which instantly makes them a fan favorite. However, occasionally iPad users voice a few complaints about their particular gadgets. For instance, the iPad won't turn on, an issue is a frequent one that many users encounter.

There are a few methods I use to fix this problem whenever my iPad won't switch on. We will show you five simple solutions if it wont turn on.

  • Check the device hardware and accessories

  • check to see if your iPad has any hardware issues. Since it won't supply enough power to turn your iPad on, using a counterfeit cable could result in charging or battery problems with your device. You must simultaneously make sure that the battery in your iPad is in perfect working order. The charging port occasionally seems to be broken as well. I check to see whether my iPad can charge without issue whenever it won't turn on. You can also charge your device somewhere else if there is a socket issue. Before trying any additional fixes, make sure the charging port is clean and there is no physical damage.

  • You will need to take a few extra steps to reset your iPad if it is fully charged but still won't turn on. Restarting the iPad is one of the simplest ways to solve the problem of it not turning on. By pressing the appropriate key combinations, you can restart your iPad forcibly. Press the Power button, which is typically found in the upper right corner of devices, and the Home button simultaneously to restart your iPad. Make careful you simultaneously push both buttons. Hold them down for at least 10 seconds, or until your iPad vibrates and the Apple logo appears on the screen. Your iPad will be forced to reset, which will fix the power cycle issue you were experiencing.

  • Start the iPad in recovery mode

    • It's likely that you'll need to go the extra mile if you can't get your iPad to switch on by forcing a reset. Using iTunes to help you put your iPad into recovery mode is one of the more practical solutions. You could resolve this issue with your iPad by doing this.

You can connect your iPad to iTunes to restore or upgrade it after placing it in recovery mode. You could address this problem by selecting either of these choices. By doing the following, I was able to remedy the problem where my iPad wouldn't power on:

  1. Launch iTunes on your computer first, then attach a USB or lightning cable to it. Leave the cable's opposite end unplugged for the time being. Make certain that iTunes is up to date before beginning.

  2. Next, connect your iPad to your system by hitting and holding the Home button on it. Press the Home button repeatedly until iTunes starts to identify your device. Your iPad will also display a connect to iTunes screen.

  3. After identifying your iPad, iTunes will examine the fault and display the message below. To resolve this problem, you only need to upgrade or restore your device.

  • Set the iPad to DFU Mode

    • You can put your iPad into DFU Mode in addition to Recovery Mode to fix the problem where it won't switch on. Device Firmware Updates, or DFUs, are often performed by a device when it updates to a new version of iOS. However, to fix a persistent problem like this, one can put the iPad into DFU Mode. Follow these steps to accomplish this:

      1. First, attach a lightning/USB cable to your iPad; do not yet attach the other end to your machine. Hold the Home and Power (wake/sleep) buttons on your iPad simultaneously.

      2. Ensure you press and hold both buttons simultaneously for at least 10 seconds, or until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

      3. Press and hold the Home button for an additional 10 to 15 seconds after releasing the Power button.

Your device will enter DFU mode after doing this. It can now be turned on by connecting it to iTunes and updating its firmware.

  • Use iTunes to restore an iPad

    • You may already be familiar with iTunes' many applications. iTunes can be used to backup or restore an iOS device in addition to managing your music. If you have already backed up your iPad using iTunes, you can restore it using the same procedure. This will assist you in resolving a number of iPad-related problems.

Follow these instructions if it won't turn and if you want to use iTunes.

  1. Launch iTunes on your computer after connecting your iPad. Verify that iTunes is running the most recent version. Wait a moment before iTunes detects your device on its own.

  2. Go to your device's "Summary" page after choosing it. Choose "Restore Backup" from the Backup section's menu.

  3. This will cause a new pop-up window to appear. Simply accept it by clicking the "Restore" option, then wait while iTunes restores your iPad.

The data on your device would be lost if you used this method, but your iPad would switch on immediately.
