"iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode. You must restore this iPad before it can be used with iTunes."
Hi this does not work.
I cannot complete step 2 as this is the problem?!?!?! It wont power on so I can't power off as its already off. I then wnt to step 3 and connected the ipad using the usb whilst holding the home button but unfortunately no joy. I now have to visit an apple store as your advice was not consistant with my question.
