Try sliding and holding it to the right for 20 seconds. This should reset it. If it does not, let me know the model number.

Will not slide to right at all ipad mini about 8 months old cannot find a model number.

So the switch is stuck? Like it is locked?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No, not locked, moves about 5 mm. but no further and when pressure is removed goes straight back, light moving all time as normal on the face of it.

Reboot device by pressing both the home button and sleep/wake (power) buttons at the same time for 10-15 seconds until the apple logo appears on the screen, then let go.
