    I have the same problem from time to time. I "reboot" by turning the iPad off for a few minutes. You can also take it into a store. The staff can look at the diagnostics and may be able to help. Good luck.

    Reboot your iPad, it should fix your problem.
    At the same time hold down the On/Off button (in landscape mode, top LHS) and the square Home button (RHS) and keep holding both until the white Apple logo appears (a slide on/off button may or may not show up, just ignore this). Keep patiently holding, could be a while. When the Apple logo appears, let both go, then slide the On button to get your iPad on its way again.
    Let us know how you got on. If no good, there are other things to try.
    Regards, Andrew

    Hi Rizza - welcome to the forum! :)

    Not really - a 'Reset' as described is like a hard boot on a computer (after all, the iPad is a 'computer') - will not damage your settings, files, or apps - but make sure that you do the 'reset' properly and let us know - good luck!

    Hi again Rizza - in a previous post, Andrew explained the 'Reset' process - below is a shorter explanation - I'm assuming that you know where the on-off (a.k.a. power) & home buttons are located? Just hold both simultaneously until the logo appears - let us know your results - good luck! :)

    Well, good luck on your 'reset' - hope that this helps your initial issues at the start of the thread - :thumbs:

    As to your iOS on the iPad - first, not sure which model you own? Second, what current version do you have? To check, select 'Settings' -> 'General' -> 'Software Update' - this will provide a screen stating your current iOS version, and should offer you an update option, if applicable; an upgrade can be done via iTunes cabled or wireless - BUT, please post back first as to your iPad model & current iOS - :)
