    What's the situation just now? If the iPad is switched off perform a reboot by holding down the Power and Home buttons for 60 seconds until the white Apple logo appears; it will then reboot - takes a couple of minutes.

    If the iPad is 'recovering' might want to wait it out before attempting anything.

    Let us know the 'state' it's in now.

    Have you tried a hard reset? Hold down the power button and the home button together until the Apple logo pops up.

    Then let it go from there ~ what it does best.

    Don't be connected to itunes when doing that ~ just connect to your power source and the wall.
