Did you setup your iPad successfully ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


No I did not get passed the language question until the language was set so that I could not read the instructions

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.

First we can reset your iPad and that will take you back to the Language selection screen. Press and hold the Power button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds or until it show the Apple logo. When you see the Apple Logo, release the buttons and let the iPad boot up. Setup it again.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can try different method.

Sorry there has been no change

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
When you reset it, doesn't it showed the language selection screen ?

Also can you see a grey button in the top left of your iPad ?
Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.

Can you see a button named "ظهر" or "قفا" on the top left of the screen ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Neither of these 2 symbols

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
If you can see any button in the top left, then tap it and that will take you back to the previous screen. So, keep tapping it until it will take you to the language screen.

If that didn't work, then we can restore your iPad from iTunes on your computer. Download and install latest iTunes on your computer from here : http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Open iTunes and connect your iPad to your PC with the USB Cable. While connected, press and hold down the Power button and Home button until your iPad shows a USB Cable pointing to iTunes. Your iTunes will recognize your iPad in Recovery Mode and asks you to restore it. Click Restore button or OK. This will restore the OS of your iPad to latest version. Then you can setup it and make sure you select English this time.

Please let me know if you have any trouble doing it.

Does that happens when you download iTunes ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
You have to download iTunes on your computer to restore your iPad. Download iTunes on your computer from here : http://goo.gl/auVmR

After downloading iTunes, install it on your computer. Let me know once you did that and we can move to next step.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Can you confirm the address please http://goo.gl/auVmR

Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
Yes, it is working. That is a direct download link. When you click on it, it will open a blank page and ask you to download the iTunes application.

If you want, I will reset my iPad and change the language to Arabic. Then I will walk you through the setup screen to setup your iPad. After setting it up, we can change the language easily. Let me know...
Expert:  Ashik replied 1 year ago.
I've reset my iPad and here is what you needed to do. If you are on the screen showing maps, tap the blue button in the top right. If you are on the screen showing a arrow with two options in the bottom, tap any one and tap blue button in top right. If you've asked to select WiFi, tap blue button in the top right and if asked anything asked in popup menu, tap first button.

If you are on the screen showing iPad's picture and three options in the bottom, tap the first one which says iPad (including arabic letters). Tap Blue button in the top right. Then tap the blue button in the top bottom right. If asked anything in popup window, tap second button. Then tap any option and tap blue button. Finally, tap iPad with arabic letters button in the bottom. This will setup your iPad. Please let me know how it goes.

Please let me know once you did that and we can change the language now.

  • 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
