    Hi I'm Ros a newbie

    I am having probs with my iPad, books, apps etc I want to download, say waiting and don't download. This is a new prob, it's been fine but suddenly this annoying prob has happened. Does anyone know how to resolve it? I'd be very grateful. Thank you x

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Restart your iPad and this should clear it, if not then a reset is the next step. 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 as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is in order.

    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. Let us know if this has fixed the problem.
