    My iPad continuously turns itself on and off. Have tried pressing home button and power button together but no success - any ideas how to fix?

    Hi there! Welcome to iPF!

    You could try to place your iPad into recovery mode and restore it: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4097

    Hi rdfleming and welcome to the forum. J.A. above made a suggestion. In the absence of any feedback from you (which is always helpful to other members with a similar problem) and assuming that your problem was not resolved, you could try the following steps:
    1) Turn off your router, wait a minute and then turn it back on.
    2) Go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings.
    Let us know how you got on. Other solutions may be possible.
    Regards, Andrew

    Hi Rdfleming - welcome to the forum! :) Just a double check, i.e. have you held both of the buttons mentioned above long enough for the Apple logo to appear? If not, please try again - takes a while but once the logo is on the screen, the iPad will do a 'Reset' - if this does not apply, then please post back - good luck!

    What exactly do you need? Is it the password for your router to set up WiFi again?

    Perhaps it's in the manual, or on a sticker on the router somewhere.
    If you can't find anything, you will have to reset the router and set it up again, this time writing down the password.

    Hi Carol - you've kind of 'hijacked' a thread that seems unrelated to the problem of the OP - thus, you are unlikely to receive the attention needed (vs. starting a new thread) w/ your post buried in another - just saying.

    Now, as Johanna has stated you really need to clarify your situation (and may want to start your own thread) - first, why did you attempt to 'reset' your iPad? And second, what password are you trying to recover? As mentioned, passwords exist for routers (either the default ones or those changed, a suggested necessity) - if that is the problem, then you will need to reset the router & enter the 'default' login/password of the product's brand/model (this information is usually available in the manual or on the company's website) - if another password, then please explain. Good luck - Dave :)

    Do a google search for default password for your brand of router. iF that doesn't factory reset your router ( there's a tiny hole you have to press it with something pointy)
    Also you can try to restore & set up as new iPad method, just go to itunes on the pc/mac and select restore when you have your iPad connected. It's dead simple.
