iPad 3 cycles apple logo when on charger, shuts off when disconnected.

Hope someone can help, I am working on an iPad 3 Wifi (A1416). When I received it, the battery would never charge no matter how long it was plugged into the ipad charger. When the ipad was disconnected it would immediately shut off. I could not connect it to iTunes since it would not turn on with USB power. I replaced the battery, which was definitely bad upon inspection (one battery section puffy), but the ipad is doing the same thing with the new battery. Would this be a motherboard issue? Since the ipad has the cycling issue, do I need to get it to boot up before it begins to charge the new battery?

This is a common issue with iPad 2's and iPad 3's. Your battery no longer hold a charge and the iPad will not boot up without a working battery. The constant reboots are what causes the "Connect to iTunes" screen. You will need to replace the battery.

Before you replace the component loading , I would try another charging jack ( if Restore does not help )
