"ipad not backed up this ipad hasn't been backed up. Backups happen when this ipad is plugged in, locked and connected to wifi."

Thanks

OK, thank you!. Please remember I do not receive a salary from this company. I am an independent Computer Science Engineer with more than 10 years of experience working with Apple devices, and now working here. The only way for me to be compensated for my time is when the customer (You) click the Accept button when satisfied. Thank you for your help and understanding.

After you follow my solution, please let me know if the issue is not solved clicking the "Reply to your expert" gray button, so we can continue troubleshooting. DO NOT click Accept if you are not positively satisfied.

Please reset the iPad. To reset it, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

If you get the message "slide to power off" ignore it. Just wait until the Apple logo appears.

Remember when you get the message "slide to power off" ignore it. Just wait until the Apple logo appears.

Your response took a bit of time - in the interim I found that I had paid Apple for support already. They immediately called me and talked me through a solution. So I never really read your response and wished I had not committed $38 to it. I'd like my $ back.
