iPad 3 GSM A1430 Reboots on Language screen and can't activate

Have tried everything I can think of, downloaded the correct 8.1.2 ipsw and installed via dfu.

The ipad will restore but will not activate either via wifi or itunes and reboots as I said in the title.

In the iTunes window the ipad is briefly recognised but very quickly the serial number comes up as n/a and there are no details viewable about the device.

Am going crazy here, is there anyone with any suggestions that might help me ?

TIA,

Arfer Guinness

Try resetting it: press and hold Home and Power button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Let go of both, your device should power up on it's own.
