iPad Mini 1st Gen

Doesn't seem to recognize when the lightning cable is plugged in. Just refuses to charge.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried another cable? This is what happened to a friends Ipad mini (1 g); I just tried my cable and it charged.

Give the port a good cleaning. Dust bunnies could prevent charging even if the cable is perfectly fine.

Are you plugging into a computer or a wall socket with the USB power plug that came with the iPad?

1 - I've tried numerous cords with no differing effects.

2 - I'll try to clean it and see what happens.

3 - I've only tried with a wall outlet. I'll see if a direct to mac connection will be any different.

Well I dunno how but I left it hooked up to my Mac mini all night and this morning it works. Did a full reset and everything seems alright.

Good job everyone.

Out of interest, I would love to know what you are using it for?
I have a 1st Gen Mini sitting at home doing practically nothing.
Half the games my son used to play won't run on it anymore.. I had a short lived dream of turning it into a HomeKit control panel but not dice with on the OS on it. I have a few movies on it for the kids but seeing as it's only 16GB its limited for what it can hold there too.

We basically use it to stream childrens shows for our toddler. She likes to use our iPads so I wanted to use something that I wouldn't be too much of a loss if she happened to bump or crack it.


It's a bit on the slow side for even that so I might just convert it to a nice little family photo frame.
