Are you referring to the Grey phone icon in the middle of the screen?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes it just keeps flashing on and off
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Thanks Jane
And if you hold the power and home (main button on screen) down for about 10 seconds until the apple logo shows, then release the buttons and allow it to restart, does this make it go away?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It did at first but it has started again
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Do you have a case around the iPad?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, remove the case and then restart the iPad as per the instructions I gave before, then tell me if it still gives this problem please.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
At the moment it's ok what difference does the case make
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
The case is pushing the volume key and this puts that symbol on the screen.
Either its a poor case or its not correctly fitted on the iPad around the volume controls, but this is what was causing the problem Jane.
If you have continued problems, or 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 by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen and then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
