I couldn't get my ipad to connect to my computer - wasn't being recognized by itunes.  When I plugged it in to the wall charger, nothing happened.  There was no indication that the battery was charging - it just continued to discharge until it was eventually dead.  I tried both the original charger and cord, as well as a car charger and neither worked.  Now when I plug it in it shows the battery with a thin red line and a bolt below it.  If I unplug it, the same shows up along with a plug and arrow pointing to the bolt, and the red line flashes.


Any ideas what to do, or what the problem is?
