Hello everyone,
I hope you all are having a great day! I recently received a new IPad 2 as a gift and have enjoyed using it for web surfing, e-mail and watching movies. I've joined this site to learn more about using my IPad and hopefully help resolve a camera problem I'm having. The back camera is not working, in fact it's not even accessible from the Camera app. But I'll make a separate post about that. Anyway it's good to be here and I look forward to interacting with all you good people.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! :)

Hi and welcome to the Forum!

A reset here may solve your problem
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 how you go.
