Just purchased a shiny new iPad today, and I can't get it to even start, as I can't link to iTunes, as my creaking old iBook isn't on 10.5. I really don't want to update my software, as the iBook is on it's last legs. How can I get my iPad started?
I go to me.com or mobileme.com, a welcome page pops up telling me that to get started on the iPad I need to select one of four or five choices set up email, calendars, find my iPhone sic,etc.It will not let me go beyond that welcoming page, even after I have selected one of those options.
I was using it last night and turned it off, then a few minutes later went to turn it back on and nothing came up. I held the power button down for a few seconds and got nothing. I plugged it in to charge (but I recall it has at least 70%) power when I turned it off) and got nothing. I just plugged it into my computer with iTunes running and it won't show up.
It's dead. One minute it was working, the next not. And I've treated it like a baby.
It's got iOS 4.2. It's a 16 GB Wifi only.
Information: iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac OS X (10.5.5)
I just got an ipad and want to sign up for a cellular data plan. I click settings, 'Cellular Data ' then I hit 'View Account'.while connected to WiFi and it comes up as 'this may take a few seconds to load' but then takes about 2 full minutes, and then it says 'connection failed. server was lost. try again later"...but i know the server wasn't lost because i can still get on to the internet for email and such.
Whenever I try to open a Calendar on my iPad 3, it will open for a second and closes immediately. I am not able to use the calendar app on my iPad because o this issue. What can be done now for starting up Calendar on my iPad?
I just received my ipad that i bought from ebay but when i turned it on all i see is and itunes icon and and usb plug... so i don't know what to do.is it suppose to be like that? The manual said to connect to itunes but i'm scared to do it because i'm planing to jailbreak it so if i connect to itunes is it gonna download the latest version automatically?
When I first opened my iPad and turned it on, I got an iTunes icon and a picture of a USB cable. So, I fired up iTunes 9.1 and plugged it in. NOTHING HAPPENED FWIW, I did not delete the plist files.I rebooted, emptied the Trash, re-installed iTunes, and reconnected my iPad. This time, it appeared under "Devices" like it is supposed to Kudos for Apple Support. I told the rep I would post here about it.
Information: Primary Machine: Intel iMac (I have others) Mac OS X (10.4.11)
I had my IPad on, then turned it off. A minute later, I went to turn it on again and it wouldn't turn on. I plugged it in thinking it might have a low battery and it a) won't turn on even though plugged in and b) didn't make the little noise that it usually does when it is plugged in and charging. It is the original IPad and about 4 months old.
I have searched this forum for faults similar to mine, but without luck. My problem is the same as this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWnz6...=youtube_gdata. My iPad sometimes "take over" and start tapping on itself. I have narrowed it to be the right side of the home buttom in "portrait mode"I really hope it is a software problem. I have tried to "reinstall" it.But same problem keeps coming back. I live in denmark, so a swap in the local apple store is unfortynately not possible.
Just tried to start ipad with no response at all. Tried to restart with various combinations of power switch and menu button. Eventually had to reconnect to laptop, start itunes (which initially did not recognize the ipad) and after holding restart button down for about 15 seconds got the apple logo. itunes then recognized the ipad but I have had to do a complete restore of ipad system and then backup of all apps. The lesson: make sure you're well backed up!!!. The question: why did it fail to start??? There are now other posts with similar problems. Hope this of interest / help. Would be interesting to get Apple's viewpoint.
My little sister bought an iPad 2 (Verizon 3G) to help her with school. Multiple times she has had a problem where none of her applications start when she selects them from the home screen. The screen simply fades out and then fades back in to the home screen.
The iPad is a pretty standard configuration with the usual apps, except she has an application called Proloquo2 to help her communicate (she's autistic).
I turned off my ipad and when it "tries" to start it gets stuck on the apple logo for several minutes, then proceeds to the wheel, but this wheel is stuck and not going anywhere for hours.
To be clear and not waste time- No replies on how to reset the ipad (because that doesn't work and I know how to do that already) needed. When I reset it goes through the whole process of getting frozen again. This happened to me before, and I had to go through the whole recovery mode process and reset my ipad.
I can not get my ipad to come on, it was working okay but when I had a message saying that an update for my ipad is available, I click on update then when it was finished it won't work anymore, all I can see on the screen is a music not incercled then iTunes, then an arrow pointing on the iTunes word, then the picture of the end of the cable, it won't do anything else
My iPad for no reason will just start loading things. I will turn it on and log on to the main screen then all of a sudden it will act like someone just started pressing on everything randomly. I have tried resetting it to factory settings, different cases, currently I am using the Griffin Survivor. It happens almost everytime I try to use it.
The guy behind me in line this am was the father of one of the guys who developed a popular game(I won't say which one in case there is some legal issue) He said they got access to an iPad at the end of December to start developing. But they had to go to Cupertino... Said they had to go to the bathroom in groups and such. Anyway he had mini posters of the game.
I tried to turned it on today the iTunes logo appeared, so I conected it to the computer and got the err msg: "iTunes could not connect to the Ipad becuase it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the iPad before it can be used with iTunes."The problem is I can not enter the pass, becuase the iPad does not respond.
earlier this day my ipad was working then my dad was putting it in my room then later this day i tried to play but it didnt work i tried to charge it but it would still not work what can i do we are positive that we have not dropped it on the floor.
