my ipad says icloud has not backup for two weeks. I plugged it in and it is still locked.
Try this to unlock the iPad.
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.
You're quite welcome. I'm glad that it worked for you.
