    I'm wondering if anyone can help me figure out why on my ipad the IPF app is only a blank black screen when opened, while i can access the forums from my laptop. there is no update needed and it was just working lastnite for me.

    does this situation sound similar to anyone? i want to be able to get on the IPF again from my ipad.

    Are you using the app, or Safari?

    Either way, try restarting the iPad, if you haven't already. If that does not work try a reset.


    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.

    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.

    It's a computer. Sometimes they glitch. Unless it starts doing so frequently it is seldom worth tracking down, if it is even possible.
