Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your questions.



Have you tried resetting it yet? Let me know what you've tried so I don't ask you to try stuff you already have.




Sincerely,
David.

I have tried that all that comes up is that iTunes symbol I cannot get away from that

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

Try these steps:
1. Connect the iPad to your computer and open iTunes.
2. Reset the iPad by pressing and holding Home and Sleep/Wake.
3. As soon as you see the image disappear on the iPad, meaning it is resetting, let go the Sleep/Wake button, but not the Home button.
4. Keep holding the Home button, after a few minutes iTunes should say it detects an iPad in Recovery Mode and ask you to Restore it.
5. Restore the iPad.

If this fails please get back to me and let me know. There are other things that we can try.

Sincerely,
David.

I did that last night, it told me it needs restoring,and I did..but ipad didnt come out of recovery mode.the itunes symbol is still there,it goes on and off every 5 minutes

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,



Have you jailbroken or tried installing unofficial firmware on this iPad? If so what version was it?


What type of computer are you trying with? Do you have a different one you can try with? Is it running the latest iTunes?



Thanks in advance,
David.

i havent jailbroken or tried installing unoficial firmware


 


i have tried doing it with my hp laptop and asar desktop ..i have latest version of itunes

Expert:  David replied 1 year ago.
Hi,

That's good, doing so would void the warranty.

Have you tried the step of continuing to hold the Home button on both computers?

Do you get a message on them saying it detects it in 'Recovery Mode', do you get that one both?

This is really worth trying again as it is the last resort before waiting for the battery to completely drain.

Sincerely,
David.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
