How to fix iPad charger not plugged in or flickering error

Hardware Restart

One of the basic ways to improve the situation of not charging on iPad is to hard restart the device. To Reset iOS devices, you need to do the following:

Step 1: Hold down the On/Off button (power button) on the top of the device.

Step 2: Continuing to hold the On/Off button, press and hold the Home button on the front of the iPad.

Step 3: Hold both of these buttons until the screen turns off, keep holding until the screen restarts and shows the Apple logo.​

Check the charger, charging cable

To check if the error is caused by the charger, the charging cable, use another iPad to charge it.

If the device does not enter the battery, you should replace the charger, the new charging cable. If the battery is in, check your iPad again.

Check the power supply

– You are plugging in the charger and receive an error message that the iPad is not charging, and there is an abnormal heat in the device or the charger, the cause may be from an unstable power source.

– At this point you should find another more stable power source or try using other devices connected to it to see if the cause is from the electrical outlet. Because using an unsafe power source can cause the charger and the iPad’s microchips to short.

-If you have a habit of using a power bank or laptop’s USB port to charge, you should immediately switch to a more stable power source because the iPad needs a fairly large power source to charge.

Check iPad pins and ports

In case your power supply is still stable, and the charger and charging cable can connect to another iPad, the problem may come from your iPad. Sometimes when using the charger, you shake it back and forth to make the charging port loose, now you should try to plug it back gently, if not, you should bring it in for warranty.

Clean the connection port

During the use of iPad, it is possible for dirt or lint to be attached and sometimes oxidized to the connection port, preventing power supply. At this point, you can use a small object such as a cotton swab or sim card to clean the charging port to help the current flow better.
