    Hi everyone,
    I'm just looking for where to post for a technical question? My iPad2 has stopped showing videos from paddy power racing telling me it cannot complete the operation. This worked fine for ages and just lately it stopped. Nothing to do with paddy powers. Any ideas.

    When something goes awry on the iPad these are the first steps to do

    From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now, if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset.

    Let us know how you go, good luck!!

    Hi,
    Thanks for the advice. Got it working again. Don't know why this should work but it did. I had deleted the paddy power app a while ago. I was going through the Internet and just logging into the site. The video didn't work. However when I installed the app back on th iPad everything worked fine.
    Many thanks for advice leelai.
