    i went into settings and hit the delete ipad button . Now several hours later its stuck on a black screen with a white apple logo in the middle.

    I tried holding the rest and home button down for 10 seconds, all it does is turn it off then goes back to the same black screen with the apple logo.

    I also tried hooking it up to itunes and it doesn't recognize that its hooked up.

    what can i do to fix it

    connect to itunes
    reboot the ipad
    hold home button when it reboot so itunes detects it.

    Mine is the same.

    The iPad ran completely flat on Saturday, I plugged it in on Sunday morning and it charged up and switched on. But it would'nt charge once powered on either from the charger or the Mac Pro, nor would it connect to the Mac Pro.

    I tried two different chargers neither would charge it while it was switched on, only when powered off after running out of charge.

    The iPad won't connect to my Mac Pro, Macbook Pro, Mackbook or PC. I've got half a dozen cables all have the same result. It will charge it when in battery flat mode but only then.

    I tried the "Erase all settings and data" option which seemed to finish ok then rebooted and now it won't get past the silver apple screen.

    It's hanging at the boot screen about half way through a normal boot with the apple logo still on.

    I can get it into recovery mode but it still won't connect to any of the systems. Can't seem to get DFU mode or perhaps it is in it but still isn't being picked up by the computer(s).

    Any suggestions?

    Hi. I tried to reformat the iPad using the data delete option in the General Tab. The iPad is stuck at the black screen with the silver apple and does not go further. Not sure how to get back or go further. I even tried the tip in this page to hold the home page so that the iTunes will recognize the iPad. but did not work. :-( pls help me
