    My Ipad has a black screen with the little wheel turning in the middle. I have tried turning off and putting to sleep but nothing happens. What is wrong and how do i get it started again?

    OK. Hold home and power buttons for 10 seconds. Then release and press the power button. The Apple logo should appear and the iPad should reboot.
    Let us know how you get on.

    Ipad has black screen

    My Ipad has a black screen with the wheel turning in the middle. Pushing the power button does nothing and pushing the sleep button does nothing. This all started after trying to sync to Itunes.:confused:

    Don't double post please! It's against the rules. I've merged the threads.

    Did my solution above work?
