    Okay...so flying home on a nightmare flight last night and did something on my ipad that I can't seem to fix...
    All of the icons on my screen are large and I am only seeing a part of my screen. I can't resize it, I can't pinch and change it at all. So I can't get into most things because I can't get to the parts of the page that I need to...what did I do and how do I fix...help me please!!!

    Someone else had this problem a few days ago on a jailbroken pad. Think it was a winterboard setting. Check the help forum going back a few days.

    I had this problem and somehow managed to power the iPad off. Now I can't turn it on again. It just acts dead! Help!

    Reset your iPad. Simultaneously hold down the On/Off and Home buttons until the screen blacks out. Keep holding both until the Apple logo appears and then let both go. Then wait until your wallpaper appears. Restart your iPad.
