You can restore your iPad to factory settings and set it up as new, is this the route you want to take?

Let me know by replying here and I will get back to you, many thanks.

Ok great. To do that you need to restart the iPad into what's called 'Recovery Mode', and then connect it to iTunes to restore the software.

To do that you press and hold the Home and Power buttons together until it restarts and shows an iTunes logo.

Do you have a computer with iTunes installed on it?

far I've spent $5 for an answer and I've already been bait and switched. Just give me the answer so I can move on.
Mac Support Specialist: David, Mac Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

It's not a closed question with a yes or no answer and it requires a series of steps done in the correct order.

There is an Apple article that details the steps here:

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201263

I can guide you through the steps if you need any help at any point, just let me know.

I need to press the on/off button on the side and the button on the front at the same time.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Sorry, that should have been a question mark.
Mac Support Specialist: David, Mac Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

No problem.

Yes, hold them both.

The iPad screen will power off and it will come back on, keep holding them all the time.

After a minute or two it shows the iTunes logo and cable, then you can release them.

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
