    The first two things I would do is

    Trying turning the ipad off and on

    check to make sure Restrictions on your iPad is turned off.
    1) press home button
    2) touch settings
    3) touch General
    4) touch restrictions
    if enabled touch "Disable Restrictions", at witch point it will ask you for the four digit code.
    If restrictions are enabled, and you do not know the four digit code you will have to restore your ipad.

    If that doesn't fix your issue can you tell us more about your issue? like dose the App Store open? Dose the app stay open? Is there a message? extra

    i restarted my iPad. made sure that restrictions are disabled.
    whenever i press the AppStore or iTunes the gray windows will open and "Loading" will appear, then the Blue box will appear with "Cannot connect to iTunes Store".
    I'm sure that I'm online bcz i can browse, also it was working few days ago.

    i go to Settings - Store - View account = a small white window will apeear and "Loading" then it says " One Moment Please, Connecting to iTunes Store, If iTunes doesn't open, click the iTunes application icon in your Dock or Windows Task Bar"

  • dagdagdag123 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Okay, this makes no sense but it worked for me. I had the same problem.

    My desktop could connect to Itunes so I knew it was working.

    My iPad internet was working. But I couldnt connect to iTunes/App Store through the App Store App or through my iPod app.

    But I went to the app store through safari -- by clicking on a link in App Shopper (the website that tells you about new apps). Safari took me directly to the app store and it worked.

    then suddenly both the app store app and the ipod app could connect to iTunes again.

    Go figure.

    Hope this works for you. Am curious to hear.

    I can enter into iTunes store but I can't redeem a gift.
    I link directly from the received mail at the redeem button, then it sems to load AppStore and after it jumps to iTunes store. After that always the blue window "Cannot connect to iTunes Store".
    Any ideas?
    Thank you

    I had the same problem on my ipad... I was connected via Wifi, my itunes apps worked but my apps app didn't; saying 'Cannot connect to iTunes'

    After trying some some of the suggestion I found online with no result, I did the following.

    * Settings
    * Store
    * view account

    It will asks you to sign in, verify your account by entering your password.

    I then turned on genius for apps, it took me straight into the apps app and loaded fine....
    I have exited and entered the ipad apps app numerous time now and works perfect every time.

    I have since gone back to my itunes settings and turned off Genius and can still access okay.

    Hope it works for you!

    Some days ago, when I tried buy an app on App Store, return this message : "Cannot Connect to App Store". I Sign Out without problems and try Sign In again. Show the window Sign In with option Use Existing Account, Create New Account and Cancel. I select Use Existing Account but, for my surprise, the window to include my account and password flash for just one second and disappears.
    I don't know why, but I can't Sign In on my App Store or iTunes Store.
    I already tried restart all settings, restart network and not work.
    There are others with same problem ? Could anybody help me ?
    Thanks a lot.

    I'm having the same problem, I was trying to buy an app and kept getting the error message 'cannot connect to iTunes store' so I decided to log out and try to log back in again but now can't even do that, so frustrating!
  • Zuxy Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I met the same problem and a hard reset resolves the problem. Simply hold Home and Sleep key simultaneously for about 10 seconds, until iPad reboots. Ignore the "Slide to Shut down" indication.

    Thanks Zuxy! That worked great for me...solved it!
