    Hi, need desperate help. Just installed a Free Alarm app on my ipad and tried it out. As the alarm activated, the screen suddenly went into a flashing mode (no sound). Then I couldn't unlock the screen. Actually there was nothing I could do. Practically the whole thing is locked down. I tried rebooting few times but after rebooted all I got was the flashing screen.

    Please please help.:confused:

    thanks.

    It Would Be Useful

    If you CAN remember the name of the app, but ultimately that might not help us that much.

    As suggested above, you could try syncing to remove the app (make sure you untick it in the apps section if this works, or Itunes will replace it)

    Try a HARD re-boot:

    See if this works and get back to us :)

    Yes - don't panic - all is OK...just needs a reboot as the previous posters have suggested...OK.. cup of coffee to relax....

    OK - now - press the Home and Power buttons simultaneously until the white Apple logo appears - it will, have faith - could be up to one minute - then sit back and relax - more coffee? - and soon you'll be up and running again.

    Don't worry about this - it happens to all iPads occasionally - after all, it's only a reboot...
