Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 11 months ago

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Ahhh, I'll try that one.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 11 months ago

yes, that is what it needs

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It doesn't work. I now have 5 failed attempts.
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 11 months ago

You will have to do a full reset then, this will remove all data from the unit and return it to new, but without the code you cannot avoid this.

To do this

Connect the iPad to the computer and open itunes

Hold the power and home button down until you see

"iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode..."

Click Restore iPAd, let this complete and it should now work

Let me know the results please

Thank you

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
