Hi there Margaret and welcome

Connect the iPad to the computer again and open iTunes, then hold both the power button and the home button for about 10 seconds till you see the Apple Logo then release.

Does iTunes indicate with a popup it detects an iPad in recovery mode?

Please let me know.

What Customers are Saying:

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
