    You can always reboot, by holding the power button for 5 seconds and than slide to power off. If that doesn't help, pressing the Power&Home button simultaneously for 7 will force the iPad to boot fresh. Just keep the buttons pressed, till you see the screen go blank.

    So this means you did reboot and saw the Apple Logo? Sometimes, folks do not hold the buttons down long enough.

    And you have it plugged into the wall, right?

    Ok.

    So the whole time the screen shows you a frozen image of Garageband? Cause it is pretty much impossible, as the hard reset (pressing the home and power button simultaneously) overrides any software issues.

    But if you think this doesn't, than I would suggest you bring the iPad back to an Apple Store.

    What happens when you connect the iPad to iTunes? Does it sync? Can you restore the iPad?

    If i could restore it i would. has been connected to itunes and it does nothing, as in does not sync, computer does not see it. It does not blink does not give of any sound, it looks like an expensive photo frame of garage smart guitar. Prity but not much use.
