I'm sorry - absolutely nothing happened after trying the steps you suggested.
Actually, itunes said that I would have to replace all settings/hardware and I would lose all files, photos, documents etc. "do I want to do that ---I said no, at this stage. I think I shoulld send the device back to Apple Canada (online) and ask them to see what they can do. What do you think?? Bernie
Hello, I will send my iPad2 to Apple in Canada to get it restored.
Thanks for your help. However, I don't feel that my problem was totally solved and repaired. I did try to restore it with the help of "iPad2 for Dummies" and arrived at the same conclusion that you did.
Please advise what you are charging me for your assistance? Thanks
I finally had to take my iPad2 to a Apple store affiliate in a city close to my home, and they were able to restore my iPad2. Bernie
