Apple I-PAD Stuck on Apple Logo

19 Nov

Lawrence the Laptop crashed and burned once again not too long ago.  I probably wrote about it, but I’m too lazy to go back and look.  In turn, I ended up buying an Apple Ipad during 11/11 (China’s version of Black Friday).  

Annoyingly, I no sooner got it than the I-Pad froze on the Apple Logo.  Luckily, it appears that this is a somewhat common problem.  It won’t go past the opening screen and won’t connect to your laptop for Restore.  

Finally, I figured it out!

  1.  Turn your Ipad off by holding down the Power and Home buttons at the same time until the screen turns black. 
  2. Turn on I-Tunes
  3. Attach the I-Pad plug to your computer ONLY.
  4. Important part: Press the Home Button down, and hold it while connecting the plug to your Ipad.  
  5. Your Ipad will show a “connecting to Itunes” screen (looks like the plug reaching up to the itunes logo).
  6. Release the home button.  
  7. Follow the instructions on your screen to restore your Ipad!
