    I have been using my ipad for a year now. I love it. But, there are some things I get stuck on... for expample how do I get unsubscribed to a podcast that I subscribed to. Also, error 1004....that is a pain when you try to download an app and you can't because the error comes up. UGH!! I was looking for ipad assistance when I found this site and hope I can get some help....in as simple old lady terms as you can give me :eek:

    Hi! :)

    I've had mine for 18 months now and like you I sometimes get stuck here and there... But this forum is a really good place to look for help. ;)

    I don't know if I'm just dumb, but the only way I was able to unsubscribe from podcasts was on iTunes. No way on Earth I could do it from the iPad. Ugh... :p It was so annoying! Hope it works for you!

    Have a good one.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    In regard to the 1004 error give these steps a try
    Do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar along the bottom. It will show all the apps that you have opened at one time or another. Long press one of these apps until they start to jiggle and red minus signs will appear above them all. Press all the minus signs, this will close them, not delete them. It's a good idea to do this regularly just to keep them all running smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now. if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will start again. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running smoothly. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset.

    When your iPad begins to behave strangely these are the first steps you should do to rectify it. Let us know how you go, good luck!!
