    Sure we will help.

    Question. When attempting to update existing apps what is happening? Do the selected icons show a waiting state?

    Check this thread which may help, it is about inability to update existing apps.

    Most are caused by an orphaned download in iTunes. Whether it be an app update, podcast, or something else a good first step is to work with iTunes on the PC where the iPad was synchronized. Download all available updates directly into iTunes, check for podcasts that are incomplete, etc. Once iTunes is current with all downloads the iPad apps stuck in a waiting state start downloading without intervention.

    Let us know if you get this fixed.

    Hmmm....you have enough open space on your iPad?

    I would go through all the troubleshooting steps. Once iTunes is current and has no pending updates or downloads post back and let us know how you are progressing.

    A good first step on the iPad is to close all background apps then power cycle the iPad. If you don't know how to do this just shout.

    Open iTunes and look at bottom right of screen when viewing applications. I believe the number of available updates is displayed there.

    Have you done as previously suggested and closed all background apps and power cycled the iPad?

    When you restart are the apps still stuck at 75 percent or does it happen when you go after the updates again?

    If you are closing all background apps, more particularly the app store prior to restart when the iPad restarts the updates should have been cancelled and you should have a normal desktop. If this is the case then try updating only ONE app and see what happens.

    To close background apps double tap home key from home screen, icons appear on bottom task bar, press and hold the app store icon until it wobbles and a red minus mark appears on all icons. Tap the red minus sign on ALL icons in the task bar. THEN restart iPad.

    I'm wondering if an update is trying to get applied to an open program....one that is running in the background. Above procedure assures iPad restarts with ZERO programs active in the background.
