    Try seeing if a reboot will help. When you hold the sleep and home buttons, keep holding until the screen goes dark and then the Apple logo appears. The key here is: The slide to lock screen may or may not appear. Just keep holding until you see the Apple logo, then you can release the buttons. IOW, don't let go if you see the log off screen.

    It may seem to take forever to see the logo or to see your homescreen reappear (or both). Just trust in the fact that both will happen...

    If that works, and since you have iOS 4.3.3 installed - I'd recommend you go to JailbreakMe 3.0 (via Safari on your iPad) and do the very simple 2-button press process of jailbreaking.

    Let us know how you get on.

    The screen is supposed to be blank in DFU mode. Don't worry, your iPad is fine. Just follow what Mickey said and you should be good to go.
