    Hold the HOME and SLEEP button down and wait for the Apple logo to reappear, the iPad will reboot. See if that fixes it.

    I faced the same problem today and I've tried all the possible options.
    I restarted iPad2 few times and it didn't work.
    So I restored factory settings, but still it didn't work.
    I tried restart few more times but in vain.

    I have iPad2 Wifi+3G 64GB ATNT version and I bought it on Mar23.

    Please Help

    Take it to the apple store there in Columbus and let the expert fix it for you.
