    Is this a new problem or has it happened before?

    If it's a new problem the best and easiest quick fix to most iPad problems is to power the iPad completely down by pressing and holding the Power button until the slider control appears and then accepting the offer to switch off, wait then until the screen goes completely blank and then power on again by pressing and holding the Power switch until the white Apple logo appears. The iPad will then power up. Most Members find this fixes a whole range of 'issues' with the iPad.

    Hope this helps but, if it doesn't, don't hesitate to get back in contact with us.

    Mine is doing the same thing. It will only open a few times when first taken off the charger. I've completely closed all programs, reset the iPad, and reinitiallized and reinstalled everything with no results. Looks like a call to Apple is in order.

    I'm having a similar problem with the camera.... I am able to take a picture with the back camera, but once I switch to the front camera it will freeze.

    I tried turning it off and same problem.

    I tried hard reset and same problem.

    I tried reseting all and same problem.

    I tried restoring the firmware and same problem.

    Very very disappointed that this is happening for such an expensive product.

    Good info link. I guess I'll just leave the camera be until Apple sorts it out. Reason No.86 why the iPad3 may not be right around the corner.

    This is only the rear camera, at least in my case. If I can get it work at all with the front camera and leave it there when I close it, it will usually open and run until I switch to the rear camera.

    I've put off calling because I'd really like to take it in in person and, hopefully, walk out with a replacement. The nearest Apple store is 300 miles away, but it looks like I'll be taking a trip that goes past a few. Does anybody know if they can/will move my apps/data from the old iPad to the new one?
