  1. Press and hold down the sleep/wake button at the top of you iPhone or iPad.
  2. At the same time, press and hold down the Home button on the front of your iPhone or iPad
  3. Keep holding both buttons until the screen turns off and then turns back on again and displays the Apple logo.
  4. Now plug your device into your computer and boot up iTunes on your computer.
  5. Now look for a button to reset it, and boom you've reset it

SOURCE: My IPad is stuck with the apple logo on a black screen while resetting to factory settings. No more movement now. What to do?

Don't forget to plug in the power. And again, press home button and on / off switch, till it switches off. Then press the on / off button, till the Apple logo comes back, then release the button. It can take up to a minute, before the screen comes on.

How to reset apple ipad


Hi Anonymous,


I think this may help you,


  1. Make sure the iPad battery is charged above 20% ( we would recommend at least 40 - 50 %). If you are not sure charge you tablet for at least 30 -40 minutes.
  2. Make sure iTunes is not running on your computer but is ready to be run.
  3. Temporally disable firewalls and other security software to prevent interference with iTunes.
  4. Make sure your tablet is disconnected from the dock or USB data cable that equips the gadget . Nevertheless USB cable must be plugged into your PC or MAC.
  5. Make sure your PC or MAC is awake and its screen saver is turned off.
  6. Simultaneously press and hold down the Wake/Sleep button and the Home button and wait until "slide to power off" screen appears. Don't do anything after its appearing, just keep holding Wake/Sleep and Home buttons until Apple tablet will power off.
  7. Release the Wake/Sleep button once Apple tablet is off , but continue to hold the Home button
  8. Holding the home button, connect the USB data cable to iPad. When you reconnect the USB cable, tablet should power on and you should see a message on your PC/MAC display saying that iTunes has detected an iPad in Recovery Mode
  9. After you detected this message, release the home button and press OK on iTunes pop-up to confirm the restore option.
  10. Do not touch iconic tablet and you computer while iTunes downloads and installs the fresh copy of firmware on your iPad. You will be notified by iTunes when iPad is successfully restored, but... in a while, you will get an message saying that the iPad isn't recognized. Don't panic. This is because all user content on iPad including activation status was erased during restoration.
  11. Disconnect iPad from iTunes ,unplug from computer and turn off.
  12. Turn iPad on and using iTunes activate it on any computer you have. Apple currently allows up to 5 computers to be authorized for each iPad.

How do I unlock a disabled ipad 2?


First try to reset the iPad, by pressing both the home button and the on / off button, till the apple logo comes on the screen. Then try again. You should have a password for you Apple account, because that will be asked. If you don't have an account name for the device not worth trying, because it will be blocked anyway.
If this does not work, why not try one in this link?

What can you do to fix a disabled ipad2?


If your iPad has become disabled permanently, your only choice will be to reset the iPad in iTunes and restore from a backup. This may seem like punishment, but it is actually for your own protection. If someone stole your iPad and tried to unlock it, the iPad would become permanently disabled, thus keeping the person from getting access to your iPad's data.
How to Restore the iPad From iTunes
Remember to restore the iPad from the same computer you used to sync. If you are using iOS 5.0 and have iCloud set up to backup your iPad, you can also restore from the cloud. Even without restoring from a backup, you can go to the app store and install any app you have previously purchased for free.


Hope this helps a bit.

Disabled ipad


Try a basic reset. It will not erase anything. Make sure the device is not plugged in. Hold the home button & power button at the same time until you see an apple on the screen. This will reboot & relaunch the software. It solves a lot of these performance problems.
