Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
On the iPad, hold the home and power buttons for about 10 seconds until you see the Apple Logo and release.
Let the iPad restart and when it has, tell me if it now connects please.

It was the firmware that had an issue, and needed a hard restart. We did this just then. It will now be ok.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
