    Good morning...
    My ipad is fairly new and I'm still learning how to work things. I was listening to a podcast and wanted to stop it. The picture for that particular podcast was displayed fullscreen. I touched it, thinking that is the way to get a pause or stop button to appear. Nothing happened. I exited by pushing the start button (is that the correct name for that button?) and it did exit but kept playing. I turned the ipad off. It kept playing. Now everytime I touch the ipod icon it starts playing and the big picture is there. I can't pause it. I connected the ipad to my computer and deleted the podcast from the ipad and from itunes. The picture is still there but there is no sound.

    Help! Is there an ipod reboot button somewhere???

    Thanks...Cindy

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Thank you! That info is a help. I was able to get out of the stuck podcast and the stuck photo goes away when I delete all podcasts for that person. I appreciate your help. B-)

    Thank you, Tim.
    I was going out of my mind - what's left of it - trying to get rid of a frozen podcast screen. Your first suggestion worked.
