I have an apple ipad 16gig (2-3 years old). At the moment the screen appears locked and it is difficult to turn off and on. When I turn it on it does nothing and the icons do not work. The volume button works and rotate lock button seems to work but the ipad does not respond and is very difficult to even turn on.
Any thoughts?
I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.
Let's try a reset first. Press and hold the power button and the home button together until you see an apple logo.
Let me know whether that resolves your issue. If not, we will try the next steps. Also, does the ipad speak back to you when you tap on the screen?
Thank You
