    Hi,

    My dad has an IPad 3 and he's telling me that his iPad won't turn on and is giving him this message: iPad has not been backed up for x number of weeks. He can't access any of the icons and he is essentially stuck. Thanks for the help..
    Thanks,
    Cy

    If he has not done so try these usual fixes, starting with the restart.

    Afterwards it may be a good idea to check out his backup settings under Settings > iCloud.


    ----------------------------
    The usual fixes:

    When you have problems with an app it's a good idea to clear it from RAM.

    Close/Clear the app: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.

    If that does not work try a restart,

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    Good to hear. Be sure to check the backup options and find out why the iPad is not backing up. That could be important some day.
