Ipad 2 error -1
I have an ipad 2 here that somebody dropped :( This has never been jailbroken, First of all i noticed the 3g stopped working on it saying no sim.. so i tried to restore the ipad via itunes and it gets to around 3qtrs through then hangs for around half hour.
Then it reboots and itunes spits out an error that is error -1
I have looked high and low for the error but cant find anything about it at all. I was wondering if anyone had seen this error before ? Im guessing it is hanging when installing the hardware driver for the 3g and because this is broken it cant find it and decides to crap itself.
I have a new digi here for it and have removed the old smashed one. Everything inside appears to be ok and nothing loose. Any suggestions?
Thanks for looking
A bit more info from the error log

I have done alot of looking around on the web regarding this but only found issues with the iphone 4s. Hoping someone can help ?
I don't know about the error 1, but there is a thread that talks about restoring to the latest iOS. Right now it is 6.1.3. The link is
That should get your iPad sorted out again.
There are seventeen or eighteen pages of comments in this thread. Following the instructions in the first post will get your iPad back into working order.
In another thread in these forums they were talking about a dropped iPad that wasn't working right. One of the comments was suggesting that maybe something got loose or disconnected inside. They were able to get the connector reseated. You should be able to search in the forums for information about this. There was something about patting it on the back.
As for the SIM card problem, my wife has had trouble with her iPhone SIM card. It all of a sudden is not recognized by the iPhone. She has to take it out and put it back in again for the phone to register that the SIM card is installed. I wonder if yours is having the same issue.
I hope you get your iPad back into working order soon.
Hey Fid thanks for the reply.
I have the digi and screen out and nothing looks out of its home. I tried reinstalling IOS 5 to begin with as that was what was on there, That didnt work so i tried the latest being 6.1.3 same deal. Thanks very much for the links i will post back if i can get it going again.
i am ready to give it a big pat on the back :)
Greetings. We're you able to find the thread with the information about an internal loose connection? When I first read it, I thought it was a little strange, but it sorted out the problem.

Good luck with getting the iOS back onto your iPad. I'll check back in the morning and search for error 1.
I have found a few threads about loose connections. I will pull them all out and reinsert it all, The internals do not look physically damaged at all so i am really hoping it is a simple enough fix. Once again thanks very much for your time i will keep you posted
Well i am guessing something is completely fried. I have reconected everything, checked it all and everything seems to be perfect. DFU mode did the same thing just gets to around 3qtrs then hangs. Same errors, Tried 3 different machines and no dice. I give it a couple of friendly taps on the back still no joy :(
Sorry I haven't been back on this forum in a week. I had a medical emergency.
Have you had any more luck with your iPad? Did all of the connections get put back into the spots and work?
Error -1 means u can't fix it had the same on my iPhone lucky it was insured had to send it away as water damage
Thank you for the input. Sounds like one of the components is bad, then.
