How to Fix iPad Problems

Many iPad problems can be fixed by resetting your device. This nuclear option clears everything on your iPad and restores it to factory defaults. Be sure to back up any data you want to keep before trying this fix.

If the problem persists, check your charging cable. Make sure it is not frayed or blocked by grime.

Black Screen

If you’re unable to use your iPad because the screen has gone black, there are a few different things that could be causing this issue. It may be because the screen brightness is too low, or it might be a software glitch that you can’t fix on your own. If this is the case, you can try to reset your device or use a recovery tool.

If the problem persists, you can try to put your iPad into recovery mode. This can help you resolve a software issue, but it will erase your data. If none of these methods work, you can also send your iPad to Schmitt Happens CPR they are reachable through this website at and let the experts check it carefully.

Another thing you can do to fix this issue is to check the USB cable and charger you’re using. Many non-certified cables don’t work properly and can cause this problem. Make sure you’re using a genuine iPad charger and cable.

If the black screen on your iPad isn’t a result of a hardware problem, you can try to restart it by pressing the power button and the home button simultaneously. This is called “burping” your iPad and it’s a simple trick that can often fix the problem. Just be careful not to press too hard, as this can damage the internal connections on your device. 

Stuck Pixels

If you discover a darkened spot on your iPad screen it could be a stuck or dead pixel. A dead pixel will never light up again but a stuck one can sometimes be reactivated. A simple test is to use an app  and open an empty page. Then, rotate the iPad to see if the pixel is affected. Stuck pixels show up as black dots, while dead ones don’t change to any color.

To fix a stuck pixel, you can use software or another third-party tool that lets you flash the picture element with multiple colors. Typically, white pixels respond to this method but colored pixels might require a third-party application or manual methods.

A lint-free cloth wrapped around your finger or the eraser end of a pencil can be used to apply pressure on the area of the dead pixel. Make gentle taps to remove any dust or physical particle that could be hampering the performance of the pixel. This won’t be a sure-fire fix and it may take several attempts to get a stubborn pixel to work. If the first attempt doesn’t work, you can try to re-do the process or visit an iPad Store for help. If your iPad is still under warranty your screen will likely be replaced without paying anything extra.

A slew of apps exist to check for and fix dead pixels on a flat screen monitor. These tools often have a built-in feature that lets you flash the display with different colors to try to activate it. While a lot of these tools are gimmicks, they can be useful to determine whether or not a pixel is dead or simply stuck.

Random Crashes

Random app crashes are a common issue with iPads that can be very frustrating. The most likely cause is a software bug. You can check for updates on the  App Store, but if that doesn’t work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app to fix it. This will help get rid of corrupted data that may be causing the problem.

If the problem persists, try factory resetting your device. This will remove all potential malware, malfunctioning apps, and bugs on your device. However, this will erase all of your data, so it’s a good idea to back up your data before doing this.

Another possible solution is to clean the memory on your iPad. This will free up space and allow essential system processes to run smoothly. You can use a software iPad Cleaner to do this.

Finally, if the issue isn’t fixed after trying all of these solutions, you can visit Schmitt Happens CPR for professional assistance. They can diagnose and solve any problems with your iPad.

If you’re using an older model of the iPad, it may not meet the hardware requirements for some of the latest apps. You can check the requirements for the apps you’re using on your iPad in Settings. If you find that your iPad keeps crashing while charging or playing games, you may need to upgrade to a newer model. This will prevent the battery from getting overheated and will ensure that the apps are running properly. You can also try setting the auto-lock to “Never,” which will prevent your iPad from locking when it’s being charged or used for long periods of time.


While the iPad is a technical marvel, it isn’t immune to slow downs. It’s especially common to see older models start to chug along at a snail’s pace, but even the latest iPads can run slowly from time to time. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to help speed up your iPad and get it back on the fast track.

One of the most common causes of an iPad running slow is having too many apps open at once. Each app uses up processing power and memory, which can cause your tablet to slow down. If you have multiple apps open, try closing them to free up some space. You can also try installing an ad blocker on your iPad, which can help speed up web browsing by blocking ads from loading.

Another common reason why an iPad may be running slowly is that it doesn’t have enough storage space. iOS and apps require a certain amount of free space to run properly. To check how much space your iPad has, go to Settings > General > Storage. It will display the space used by each app. You can also delete apps from your iPad to free up storage space.

If you have tried these tips and your iPad is still running slow, it may be time to reset it. Resetting your iPad will wipe all of its data and settings, so it’s important to back up anything you want to save before resetting it. You can do this by connecting your iPad to a computer and using iTunes to back up your device. After backing up your iPad, you can reset it by holding the power/lock button down until a screen appears with the option to slide the switch to shut off the device.

Slow Charging

The iPad can take a while to charge up because of background apps that consume a decent amount of battery power. This is not uncommon and you can resolve it by closing unnecessary apps or by reducing app consumption. Another common cause of slow charging is a defective lithium-ion battery that has reached its maximum cycle count and isn’t as effective as it used to be. If you suspect this is the case, your best bet is to get it fixed at an authorized store or at Schmitt Happens CPR.

Check the adapter and cable for visible damage. Make sure that the cable’s housing fits firmly in the iPad charging port and that there are no signs of tears or burn marks. Try a different known good cable and adapter to see if this fixes the issue.

Look at your iPad’s charging port and see if there’s any gunk clogging it. This can be food crumbs, dust, or other grime that may have collected in the port. Try using a can of compressed air or a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol to blow out any buildup and clean the charging port.

Make sure that your wireless connections are turned off while the iPad is charging. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Cellular are all energy consuming features that can interfere with the charging process. Alternatively, you can enable Airplane Mode to keep these features from draining your battery while charging. This will also help speed up the charging process.
