Posted by: 08.12.2017
Greetings to you, dear users and undoubtedly, the happy owners of iPad - Apple tablet computer based on the iOS operating system (at the time of this writing, the extreme version is the eighth). If you are a happy owner of any gadget from Apple, for example, an iPad (2,3, Mini, Air), then most likely you have become accustomed to its stable and reliable work, and for you the fact that the gadget does not turn on turns you into a dead end.
Those people who have never used tablet computers other than iPads (2,3, Mini, Air) probably don’t knowthat during the operation of the device may experience any difficulties or problems, for example, the device does not turn on.
In today's article we will analyze the situation when the iPad does not turn on (2,3, Mini, Air). Those. The device, when you press the “turn on” button, does not react either, and even an apple on a glass, black screen does not light up.
Faced with this situation? Do not rush to panic and look for a screwdriver to disassemble your iPad (2,3, Mini, Air), I, in general, categorically do not advise you to disassemble the tablet computer yourself if problems arise, you cannot correct the situation, but you can do even worse. Moreover, if the iPad (2,3, Mini, Air) does not turn on, then this problem can be solved in ninety-nine percent of cases, literally, in five minutes. Below I will tell you what steps you need to take.
Of course, I suppose that now there will be many dissatisfied exclamations, but believe me - the action described below is the first thing to be done in a situation when your iPad tablet computer (2,3, Mini, Air) cannot be turned on. Maybe he just ran out of battery. If you have not tried this method to “reanimate” your device, then do it right now - connect your tablet computer to a power outlet.
If this method does not help and the device does not turn on, go to heavier artillery..
The next step to be taken to reanimate your Apple device (in fact, this way you can bring back to life not only an iPad tablet computer (2,3, Mini, Air), but also an iPhone smartphone) - press and hold two buttons at the same time: the on / off button of the device and the “Home” button (the round button at the bottom of the inner side of the Apple device). Hold and hold these two buttons simultaneously for at least ten seconds. If after this time the apple does not burn, then go on to the next way to get the iPad to work.
If the apple caught fire, then everything is in order (the gadget turns on), and your iPad or iPhone will work in a certain amount of time (a few seconds).
If the previous method did not help and the device still does not turn on, then use a more radical method, namely, restoring the iOS operating system using iTunes. This is done very simply, follow the steps described below.:
- Connect your device (iPad tablet computer or iPhone smartphone) to a personal computer using a USB cable; this cable should be bundled with your Apple device;
- On the computer to which you connect the device must be installed iTunes. If this program is not on your personal computer, then you need to install it. This can be done at this link - http://www.apple.com/itunes/;
- Launch iTunes, then press CTRL + S and in the side menu that appears, select your device. Go to the “Overview” tab, now on your Apple device, hold down the buttons: home and on / off. Do not release the buttons for about ten seconds;
- Further, in the program, a window will appear in which you will be offered to restore the iOS operating system.
Attention: restoring the operating system on your device, you act at your own risk, the author of this material is not responsible for your actions.
If none of the suggested methods helped you, then only one thing remains - to take your device to a service center.
That's all for today, I hope now your iPad (2,3, Mini, Air) or iPhone turns on without problems.
