You have requested for me to connect remotely to your computer to help you set or reset your apple id. Are you on a MAC or a PC (Windows)?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
pc windows
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
okok thanks
Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

Yes, my remote is running, but I don't yet see your connection.

Please follow the previous instructions. The program you'll download is called ESLINORE. You need to run that and OK/Approve any messages so it can run and I can connect to you.

Hi still waiting for help. Hope all is ok. Spoke with Josh earlier. He helped me to find my apple id and gave me the link to reset my password. Followed all instructions but my ipad still wont except the information and therefore I am still unable to unlock it.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It would appear that so far today I have spent £50 and am no further forward! Would someone please acknowledge me!
Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

Hello again Angela,

As we discussed, you'll need to try to factory reset your ipad. Do you happen to know if this ipad was EVER synced with ITUNES? You mentioned connecting it to the computer. So, have you ever connected it and sync'd with itunes on the computer?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No but there was some sort of message that indicated that i had requested to link to my iphone. dont have an iphone
Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

OK. Then the please follow these steps:

1) UNPLUG your ipad from the computer, and put it aside for now.

2) On the computer, go to the link below, and click to DOWNLOAD itunes.

http://www.apple.com/itunes/

3) Finish installing and running Itunes after download

4) When you have itunes running and on your screen, reply back to me for further instruction.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
have downloaded but cant see how to run it
Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

Just go to your downloads, and double click on what you have downloaded. file is called itunes.

Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

If you are using INTERNET EXPLORER (Blue E) , then hold down CTRL key and press letter J to get to the downloads.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
think ive done it
Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

Step 1

Close Itunes if it is still open

Step 2

On the IPAD, Hold down the "Sleep/Wake" button for several seconds until a red slider appears. Move your finger across the slider to turn the iPad off.

Step 3

Connect the iPad to the computer while holding down the "Home" button to turn on the iPad.

Step 4

Release the "Home" button when you see a message that says, "Connect to iTunes."

Step 5

Launch iTunes. iTunes will alert you that it detects a device in Recovery Mode.

Step 6

Click "OK" and click "Restore" to reset the iPad.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
got the little itunes symbol but it wont do anything
Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

You'll need to keep trying to get into recovery mode.

Here is a link that better describes the process (with pictures):

Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

Remember when you are holding the home button, you need to continue to hold it while you plug the ipad into the computer. If any step fails, you have to close out itunes if it is open, and repeat the steps from the beginning.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Thanks for all your patience and support. Still haven't been successful but too tired now to continue. x
Expert:  technicalcat replied 7 months ago.

You can also try the instructions in this video. It's slightly different as you'll connect the ipad, then hold home and power. Of course, instead of a MAC, you'll be using your PC, but the procedure is about the same.
