What If Your iPad Isn't Working The Way You Expect

The Apple iPad neatly combines an audio and video iPod, an e-book reader, a powerful Internet communications device, a handheld gaming device, and a platform for apps. Most of the time, your iPad behaves itself, but every so often it doesn't. 
Here's a quick review of things you can try if your iPad isn't working the way you expect:
1.Restart your iPad.
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button, and then slide the red slider to turn it off. Wait a few seconds. Press the Sleep/Wake button to turn on the iPad again. 

2.Force any frozen applications to quit.
Press and hold the Home button on the front of the iPad for 6 to 10 seconds. Then restart it (see Step 1). 

3.Reset your iPad.
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button while you press and hold the Home button at the same time. This forces your iPad to restart. 

4. Reset iPad settings.
Tap the Settings icon on your Home screen, and then tap General→Reset→Reset All Settings. Resetting iPad settings won't erase your data, but you'll probably have to redo some settings afterwards. 

5.Restore your iPad.
Connect your iPad to your computer as though you were about to sync. Then select the iPad in the iTunes source list and click the Restore button on the Summary tab.

Warning! Restoring your iPad erases all your data and media, and resets all your settings. Because your data and media (except contacts, calendar events, and playlists you've created or modified on your iPad since your last sync) still exist on your computer, you shouldn't lose anything. Your next sync will take longer, and you will have to reset any settings you've changed since you got your iPad. But your media and data files shouldn't be affected.
