Hi there, and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.
Can you hold the power and home button on the iPad for about 10 seconds until you see the Apple Logo, then release.
Let the iPad restart and tell me if it is then functional please.
