What's currently showing on your iPad's screen?

Do you mean everything is frozen, even if you press the Home button (which is the button located at the bottom of the iPad's screen)?

On your iPad, can you please press and hold both the Power (On / Off) button and the Home button (which is located right below the screen) together for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears, then wait a bit, then let me know what happens?
