    hello all, new to the forum, i have a disabled friend, who has this i pad, and it will not now turn on, it states on screen IPAD disabled, connect to i tunes.
    i have tried to connect to i tunes on my i mac, but get a message to ask the iPad to respond, which it cannot do. any help appreciated, as the boy has a very low IQ and uses it to listen to music only. regards sealandroader.

    put it into dfu mode.

    holding the home button and the top button together.. it will turn off then come back on.
    plug it into itunes when its in dfu mode i had this issue with my ipod touch, after a year i finally sorted it
