I welcome you, dear users and undoubtedly the happy owners of the iPad – a tablet computer from Apple based on the iOS operating system (at the time of writing, the latest version is the eighth). If you are the proud owner of any gadget from Apple, for example iPad (2,3, Mini, Air), then most likely you are already used to its stable and reliable operation and for you the fact that the gadget does not turn on starts up dead end.
Those people who have never used tablet computers other than the iPad (2,3, Mini, Air) probably don’t know, that during the operation of the device there may be any difficulties or problems, for example, the device does not turn on.
In today’s article, we will analyze the situation when the iPad (2,3, Mini, Air) does not turn on. Those. the device does not react in any way when the “on” button is pressed, and even the apple on the glass, black screen does not burn.
Faced this situation? Do not rush to panic and look for a screwdriver to disassemble your iPad (2,3, Mini, Air), I generally categorically do not advise you to disassemble the tablet computer yourself in case of problems, you can not fix the situation, but you can get worse to do. Moreover, the iPad does not turn on (2,3, Mini, Air), then this problem in ninety-nine percent of cases can be solved, literally, in five minutes. Below I will tell you what actions to take.
Of course, I assume that there will be many discontented exclamations now, but, believe me, the action described below is the first thing to take in a situation where your tablet iPad (2,3, Mini, Air) cannot be turned on. Perhaps he just ran out of battery power. If you have not tried this method to “reanimate” your device, then do it right now – plug your tablet into a power outlet.
If this method does not help and the device does not turn on, go to the heavier artillery.
The next step to take to resuscitate your Apple device (in fact, this method can bring back to life not only the iPad tablet computer (2,3, Mini, Air), but also the iPhone smartphone) – press and hold two buttons at the same time: the device’s on / off button and the “Home” button (the round button at the bottom of the inside of the Apple device). Hold and hold these two buttons simultaneously for at least ten seconds. If after this time the apple does not burn, then go to the next way to get the iPad to work.
If the apple caught fire, then everything is fine (the gadget turns on), and your tablet iPad or iPhone smartphone will work after a certain amount of time (several seconds).
If the previous method did not help and the device still does not turn on, then use the more radical method, namely, restoring the iOS operating system using iTunes. This is done very simply, follow the steps described below.:
- Connect your device (iPad tablet computer or iPhone smartphone) to a personal computer using a USB cable, this cable should come with the Apple device;
- The computer to which you are connecting the device must have iTunes installed. If this program is not on your personal computer, then you need to install it. You can do this at this link – http://www.apple.com/itunes/;
- Launch iTunes, then press CTRLS and select your device in the side menu that appears. Go to the “Overview” tab, now on your Apple device, hold down the buttons: home and on / off. Do not release the buttons for about ten seconds;
- Further, a window will appear in the program in which you will be prompted to restore the iOS operating system.
Attention: restoring the operating system on your device, you act at your own peril and risk, the author of this material is not responsible for your actions.
If none of the proposed methods helped you, then only one thing remains – to take your device to a service center.
That’s all for today, I hope now your iPad (2,3, Mini, Air) or iPhone turns on without problems.
