Do you have any idea what caused this problem?

Are you sure the battery is full? Try recharging it for a night.

1. I changed the boot loader
2.battery OK(on a full charge can't be turned off. on the black screen lit backlight to complete discharge.)
he is not seen as a device on a full charge, disable it. visible only when discharged.

Did you update the bootloader to a newer version or did you replaced your bootloader by another one (not Xiaomi MiPad)?
If the last one is the case there won't be no way to restore your MiPad without a JTAG.

If you get any connection with your device dd could be working.
JTAG is a device that can flash your device without a bootloader.
The thing is that getting a JTAG is not easy, Xiaomi will probably use it if you send it for repair.

Where is the closest repair center Xiaomi that can unbrick? I live in Moscow, Russia. I can't find (who can unbrick)

Or another option, which need JTAG?
On eBay you can buy?

Help please.

I installed WSM Tools. it was possible to leave everything as usual(/system)...about you cwm something like this, I chose. it was a warning brick, after a reboot it stopped...to enter fastboot, recovery and invisible in the system until charged the battery, if you disable the battery it is seen as NVIDIA USB Boot-recovery driver for Mobile devices(a few seconds) miflash it sees and all 0000000.

Hurm, maybe similar to me. I tried the Miphone software. It did not recognise my mipad until i change to generic android driver and then it recognised by it cannot flash the rom to the mipad.

What did i do is that boot to fastboot, extract all the fastboot version of the rom, and double click the flash.bat, and the rest..my mipad boot again.

Try to change to generic usb driver if it help...

try a samsung driver, they worked for my gaining fastboot acces to the oneplus one when going from coloros to cm11s! its not only compatible with samsungdevices!

please uninstall old drivers first then reboot!im working on multiple phone flashes sometimes and every now and then my pc start to be unable to communicate to those! normally after a reboot needed drivers picks up and aprroch the phone as expected..it might be placebo effect!

Im in the same boat as the op. I tried installing Xposed (Now i know that isnt such a smart thing to do) and used the zip through recovery option. When it rebooted it to get into recovery, it got stuck on the XI logo and i had to force reboot it (Xposed didnt even get installed yet), but it only gave me a white screen afterwards (only backlight). Every button combination i tried resulted in a white screen without any response watsoever. I couldnt even put my mipad out, it just kept going to a white screen. So i waited until it was empty and then connected it to my pc. It saw my mipad as APX in my device manager and after installing it it is recognized as nvidia usb boot-recovery driver for mobile devices. The miphone flash tool can see the device, but the device is always busy. I can still recharge my mipad, however without access it is no use to waste charges and the only way to see my mipad is it being empty and connected.

I use Xposed on another android device for a few adjustments.
I tried every combination, they all lead to the same result. For now im going to leave it uncharged and charge it again tomorrow and try if i can somehow get into fastboot, but seeing that i only get the white screen, i am afraid that it wont really have any effect to wait.
