No idea why it is happening, but there a few things that you can try. All of these are basic troubleshooting steps.
Restart the iPad.
Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
Close all apps and restart.
Go to the home screen first by tapping the home button. Quit/close open apps by double tapping the home button and the task bar will appear with all of you recent/open apps displayed at the bottom. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner to close the apps. Restart the iPad as described above.
Reset the iPad.
Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
Clear Safari and restart the iPad. Clearing history is not a must.
Go to Settings>Safari>Clear History, Cookies and Cache. Restart the iPad as described above.
Hello Demo, just want to thank you for your fast and accurate response.
It is amazing that something so simple but yet, important could solve the problem. I just re-started the ipad...one thing that never did before in the 2 years that I have the ipad and voila! Everything is working perfect.
Thanks again for taking the time to help!
