    Hello, first of all don't panic, I'm sure we'll get this sorted :).
    I'd just like to point out this is worth doing whenever you have a problem with anything on your idevice.
    If this fails try rebooting your iPad. To do this hold the power key down until the turn off swipe appears, swipe this and your iPad will turn off, then turn it back on like normal.
    If thats also failed you can try doing a soft reset. To do this hold the power and home key till the iPad turns off completely. Now turn it back on like normal (this will take slightly longer than usual but don't worry thats normal). Hopefully this should clear it. If not come back and hopefully we can find something else to do.
    Hope this fixes it, if not pop back and someone else might be able to help you a bit more.
