It only happened this afternoon - the first time it has happened. My wife was looking at her Facebook page on the iPad and suddenly the screen just faded away to black.
I could not get the page back up, whatever I tried, the screen remained black.
Eventually I managed to shut down the iPad (power off) and restart it.
After this it opened up to our normal log in screen.
I was asked to input my password ***** strange that I was never asked to do this via voice message before, but this time was asked to enter my password. When I input my password, which the voice repeats - it does not progress beyond the last number of my password ***** and nothing happens. The page is just stuck on that screen. It is late her (in Australia) so I may not get to see any further responses until tomorrow. Its now 10.09pm in Australia.

Have you thought of any solutions to my iPad problem?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The rate things are going with this query, it will be weeks before I get any idea whether you can help me or not - at this point I am becoming a little pessimistic. I also note that my credit charge shows a charge of AU$61 from you for providing a solution to my problem. I haven't received any advice from you yet.

Hello:

I'm so very sorry it took so long for someone to offer assistance to you. My name is ***** ***** I've just come online and saw your question waiting. Before we start, can you please confirm if you still need assistance with your question? Thank you!

That is becoming a difficult question to answer, given the response I have had so far, but yes, the problem with my iPad continues. The problem I am experiencing is detailed in my message dated 10th December above. I have shut down the iPad and restarted it. It opens up at the home page with a funny voice asking me to input my passcode. When I enter in the password ***** happens when I get to the fourth digit of the password ***** nothing. Swiping across the screen does nothing. My iPad is now not connected to my WiFi and is totally unresponsive. If you can offer any suggestions that may help, that would be appreciated, but if it means going into a long, drawn out hit and miss approach to see what happens, then no, I think I will call it quits. Cheers! William *****

Hi Josh, Second thoughts, it is just too difficult using this "help" service - so I don't wish to proceed any further. Please immediately close this file. Of course, given that I haven't received any help whatsoever (I will excuse you Josh, you just coming into this), I do NOT wished to be charged anything. William *****

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
