    Ipad 2- unsure on which iOS but may be original software or one upgrade only ever received. The kids just played on it, we tried upgrading by hooking to Mac as no aps worked anymore. It kept saying restore on laptop- we agreed but each time (tried 5 +) it won't successfully restore or upgrade.
    Now it is stuck in itunes mode not allowing me access anything.
    Advice?

    Also- I see it connected on the laptop and it is not new. We do not care about the data on it. I tried using previous threads but mine seems unique.

    If it's on the charger logo, plug it in to a power source let it charge for at least 30 minutes. Try restoring it again afterwards.

    If you get the "connect to iTunes" screen, recovery mode should help you out of it. Did you follow the instructions in my link exactly?

    Also: is iTunes on your computer up to date?

    Check your security software. Make sure it doesn't prevent your computer from connecting to Apple's servers. That's necessary, or else you won't be able to restore your iPad.

    Also check your USB connection. If possible, try a different USB plug.

    Error 9 means a USB/ Hardware error. Try a different cable, check your dock connector for damage or debris. If you are using a PC laptop, try a Mac. If none of these work try the apple store.

    From personal experience some iPad 2s just up and die like this after a few years. I have a couple here in the parts bin that went the same way. You may want to prepare yourself for that possibility.
