Just like any other electronic device, the very first thing you want to do is to not try to restart/sync the iPad. This may further damage your iPad. The next thing to do is to clean it.

Clean everything with +90% (no less than 90%) isopropyl alcohol. Follow this guide, and even so it was written for an Apple iPhone 3G all the points are still pertinent to your phone. Pay particular attention to the SMD components, check for charred missing or broken missing. You can then dry the board in an oven or equivalent at 220deg F (not higher;-) for a few hours. Best way to clean it would of course be through an ultrasonic cleaner. Consider professional help with that When it is properly cleaned, you must replace the battery. All these steps are to avoid delayed failure caused by corrosion. Once all this is done, repalce the LCD and reassemble your iPad to reevaluate for any further damage.
