    Connect your device to iTunes then after it syncs click on your device and if you scroll down on the first page you can then enable backup through iCloud. Sync again and it should now work.

    I was having the same problem. I plugged my iPad in and hit back-up and it is working fine. Must need to be plugged into an electrical outlet.
