My iPad was taken away by my parents for a few months because of my little brother's excessive playing. When I got it returned, it was on low batteries and I used it for a bit before it ran out. Then, my mom took it away again for a few weeks, and when I got it back, it won't turn on even after charging. I tried 3 different working chargers, none of them worked. I tried reseting (10 seconds of home button and turn off button), but no luck. The iPad will not connect with iTunes and doesn't show up on the devices. When I try to turn it on, it flashes for 1/4 a second then it's pitch black again. Help? What do I do? Any help will be appreciated.


I have an iPad (1). Not the new one. Its iOS is not updated to the most current, but is still not too old.
