    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.

    So it does appear? Then what do you do? It should reboot. But you are saying that it goes right back to recovery mode? IF you are seeing the Apple logo, just don't do anything. Don't touch it.

    Let it do its thing. And you have registered and set up your iPad with iTunes, right?
