Result:why is my ipad 2 not holding a charge

We have an ipad 2 32GB and lately it hasn't been holding a charge or charging nearly as fast as it has in the past. We've disable location services on everything with the exception of ipad Finder app. and disabled bluetooth and notifications. We always close out apps hen w're done using them. Does anyone have any idea why this may be happening or any suggestions on how to make it better?  We'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks!...|battery-holding-charge.

Having an ipad 2.States that ipad is disabled - connect to iTunes. The original computer with which the ipad 2 was syncronized has crashed. iCloud has not been used for backup or syncing. Starting up the ipad 2 by holding the Home button down and connecting USB cable to the device and also to a computer (new). It never goes into the recovery mode. What shall I do? Thank you in advance! //Andreas...|ipad-enter-recovery-mode-holding-home-button

Why does the ipad make the same noise when it connects to a charger that doesn't charge it as one that will charge it???I would expect that it would make an unusual noise if plugged into a generic USB charger that does not have enough oomph to charge a pad to alert you - otherwise, you might think the noise is reassuring that you are actually charging it....|ipad-noise-connects-charger-charge-charge

I have just got a new ipad with retina display and I have let the battery fully drain but now it is charging again, it seems to be taking a while to charge, but how long do I charge it for? Do I just charge it until t is full or for longer? I have been told that you are meant to leave it to charge for between 12 and 24 hours the first couple of times you charge it to increase the length of the battery life. Is this correct? ...|charge-ipad-time-charge-18-hours-improve-battery-life-fully

After several days of inactivity ipad won't display main screen. When I first turned in on, it asked for a four digit passcode. I never had a four digit passcode. After entering "incorrect" passcode, it told me I could try again in 60 minutes. That was day one. Since then, it displays "connect to iTunes" which I can't do. I've tried holding on/off and homebuttons simultaneously. "connect to iTunes" keeps coming up.

My ipad (3rd Gen) seems to stop charging if it is plugged into my MBP if either the ipad is closed or if the MBP goes to sleep. My iPhone charges whether the MBP is awake or asleep or even if the MBP is closed. There is a screen display that shows the iPhone is charging. The ipad only has the tiny icon at the top of the screen that show it is charging. However, the battery's % charged does not increase if the lid is closed when I am charging the ipad if the lid is closed on the ipad or if the ipad off after pressing the on off button. Is this normal?...|ipad-charge-plugged-macbook-pro-mbp-sleep-iphone-continues-charge
