Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

First we can reset your iPad and see if it works or not. Press and hold down the Power button and Home button at the same time until it shows the Apple logo. When you see the Apple logo, release the buttons and let it boot. If that didn't work then goto Settings > Bluetooth and turn Bluetooth off.

If that didn't work then go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings. Does it work now ?

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.
