    Have you tried a reset to see if it then restarts properly ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider if it appears), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.


    Otherwise at the bottom of this page it says that if you just have an Apple symbol on the screen to :


    • Connect iPad to your computer and open iTunes.
    • If the iPad appears in iTunes, select the iPad and click Restore on the Summary pane.
    • If the iPad doesn't appear in iTunes, try using the steps in this article to force iPad into recovery mode.

    The link to force iPad into recovery is dead ... WHAAAAA

    Unable to update or restore


    Just refesh the page - it will work. The Apple support sites have been acting up the past few weeks. Refresh the page and it should work for you.
