    Hi I am new to the forum. I am desperately trying to find out why the video button stopped working on my IPad camera and if anyone knows how to fix it. Thanks!

    You'll find the software in Settings - General - About - Version.
    The model number is on the back cover of your iPad and can be found under "iPad". It will start with "A", followed by four numbers. If you post these, we can help you identify your iPad.

    Chances are that you've upgraded to iOS 7. In that case, you don't tap the video/square/photo mode control anymore. You swipe it up and down to switch modes. It's confused a lot of people. Apple could have done more to make this action more obvious.
