I do not have a Videos app.

Swipe to the very left screen until you are at the search, then search for video and you should see it show for you

I searched for videos on this device and there are none

ok, this is likely part of the issue

Hold the home and power buttons on the iPad for about 10 seconds until you see the apple logo then release.

Let the iPad restart and tell me if you still get the storage issue please

Media, when I sync it with my computer it is labeled as video on iTunes.

Could the videos be movies I rented and watched but have expired?

It may be, but I do not see why you cannt find the video app, did you check all pages?

When I watch movies it is through the TV app. I have checked it and there is one mive waiting to download but there is not enough space to down load it.

ok, if it is TV, do this

  1. Open the TV app.
  2. From the menu at the bottom of the screen, tap Library.
  3. Under Library, tap Downloaded.
  4. Find the movie or TV show that you want to delete, then tap it.
  5. Firmly press the item to use 3D Touch, then tap Remove Download . Or tap , then tap Remove Download

Let me know when you have please

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
HBO

uninstall the app from the iPad

Then restart using the power and home buttons again

Does it then free up the space?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No it did not.

what other media apps do you have installed?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I have iBooks with one download book. I have deleted everything else.

If you go to the camera roll, and view photos and videos, do you see any videos there?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It says No Photos or Videos.

ok, it looks like the data on the pad is corrupted.

Go to settings, general, reset, reset all settings

Once done, tell me if it then frees up the space please

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No it didn't.

ok, we need to do a full reset of the iPad to reinstall the firmware.

This will remove all your personal content from the iPad and return it to new, but this we cannot avoid.

To do the reset, go to setting, general, reset, erase all content and reset settings

Once done, set it up again and tell me how it then functions

Let me know the results please

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It basically wiped my iPad clean and freed up the storage.

yes, the data usage was corrupted as it was not being used at all, this we confirmed and following all the repairs we attemped we had to wipe it.

It is now functioning correctly?

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
