Hi! So I have the new iPad, the iPad 3, and I never had camera problems until recently. The camera won't turn on and if it does, which is like never, it's all glitchy. What can I do?! Please help.

iPad, iOS 5.1.1

    Do you ever quit the camera app and relaunch it, or do you just keep accessing it from the recents tray or the home screen? Do you ever restart the iPad?


    Quitting a problematic app and restarting the iPad when things go "glitchy" are basic troubleshooting steps.


    Quit the app completely and restart the iPad. Go to the home screen first by tapping the home button. Double tap the home button and the task bar will appear with all of your 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 of the app that you want to close. Tap the home button or anywhere above the task bar. 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.


    A reboot of the iPad can work wonders sometimes as ell.


    Reboot 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.
