Am allowing changes but in Icloud area all is greyed out except Delete Account... Icloud box pops up every 3-5 secs
It asked me to enter my password ***** my Apple ID....I did that, but verification failed as there is no internet connection.... Presently there are no internet connection present and the Icloud box keeps popping up so regular, it prevents me from trying to set one up
Hi Richard...Yes...still there...the Icloud box keeps popping up and the second it does, it stops any other function, so it knocks of other functions
That Icloud box is a pain...but eventually (I think) reset as the apple logo came up and a line appear across the screen for a while, but I still have the dam box popping up
Tried...it asked for password ***** then said verification failed as the internet connection appears to be offline
Hi Richard...did what you said... the box with serial number and Ipad recovery mode came up...and there are two options... update and restore ipad. The immediately another box comes on top of that and this say "there is a problem with the ipad "ipad that requires it to be updated or restored...then gives the same options.... I chose the restore and then it starts a process...telling me it will update and restore..it now shows software update downloading and looks like it will take 4 hours???
What happens if the battery runs out in this time???... think I had 25%
Okay....looks like this will take a while...will come back to you as soon as its finished??
Somethings keeps happening...after a short period, the ipad reboots and starts beeping - do I stop the process and start???
The first time I just held the buttons and the computer picked it up and said it was download the update...but should this be happening??
The download is about quarter of the way,,,,saying 3 hours remaining...the ipad has rebooted and at the opening screen and keeps beeping
The Ipad stops beeping immediately when disconnected from the laptop. but starts immediately when I plug it in again, so I restarted the ipad and plugged it in but it beeps immediately
Yes it is starting the process again...
What shall I do if it starts beeping again??
Beeping has started again...what do I do??
...the ipad is at least 3 years old...so no warranty...does that mean that t5he Ipad is no longer any good??
Good morning Richard
I Just thought I would update you on the situation with the Ipad. After speaking with you yesterday I went to a drinks party and got talking to a chap there who funnily enough had the same problem some months back and he tried to restore it, however every time he got a little way in, the Ipad just kept beeping, (exactly like mine) so he took it to work with him for one of the "lads" there to play about with and within a few hours had it fixed... The lad just recharged the Ipad (using the right charger) and then restored it. Now this rung a few bells as I just use the same charger for Ipod, Ipad.... thinking whats the difference, so first thing this morning I went and got a new charger and stuck it on.... got it fully charged... Now I cannot recall ever seeing the Ipad at 100% for months...stuck it in recovery mode and went for the restoration..... and hey presto... I have got my Ipad back... Happy about that. It does seem that over a period of time by not fully charging the battery, it had an adverse effect on the ipad. It does not however explain why the Icloud box kept popping up, but I have disabled most of the stuff in that function now...particularly the find my phone option, as that was preventing me from doing a lot of stuff. Whats your take??
Just something that is taken for granted... on further investigation, I have a charging station...well a desk where all the charging goes on cameras, batteries, ipods, ipads etc... and don't really look at the actual chargers.. could have saved me a lot of grief that....well lesson learnt. On the other hand, the Icloud has its uses and then again ... Anyways...thanks Richard!!
