May I ask what was wrong with it?
I am experiencing the same issue. I took it back to apple and they replaced it.
Mine just did the same thing. One minute it is fine. The next it is dead. Off to the Apple store I go.
Google "how to fix a dead ipad". There is a discussion on apple's site on how to fix dead ipads (various solutions dealing with power off, charging, etc.).
I took mine to the Apple store and they replaced it. I had apple care. Lucky me.
My son left my iPad sitting on top of his PS3 and now the display screen is messed up from the heat of the game. Well it's now his iPad ( he just works around the display issue) and I got a new one. I thought it was time anyway.
