    When the lock screen first comes up, just quickly tap the power (top) button, then enter your password. Works for me.

    Here's where you can download the iPad manual.

    can't enter passcode

    When you say you reset the device, did you hold the home and power buttons until the unit shut off and then restarted itself?

    If you did, then the only thing I can recommend is a full restore using iTunes, and if that doesn't work, a trip to your Apple store for a replacement...

    Thanks...sorry for delay; a friend had it for the week to check into it. I ended up getting the passcode to work by triple tapping keys for the code. then I had trouble getting anything to work so friend took it for tech. learned the triple tap on home key put it in voice override (or something)...all fixed and working great now.
    appreciate the help on this forum.
