I got this problem too.
The screen is totally black. You can see it " black-dim " when you turn it Off & On.
You can ear the email tones when I receive an email.
So it's definitvly working ... just show's a balck screen.
So here's what I did (don't get your hope's up .. I'm still stuck).
1- I tried to put it on recovery mode. It does ... but I can't see the usuall iTunes and connector image, I still get a black screen.
2- Rebooted it from recovery, still black
3- Did a full Restore, still black
Now it's totally empty and still the same black screen.
Any ideas ?
OMG Riley you just saved my Ipad!! I had the same propblem with my Ipad and I could hear notifications coming in, but my screen was black. I thought it was going to be insane to knee my Ipad, but it really worked!! You saved my life... the nearest Apple store to me is 4 hours away!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!
