    Did you do this?

     

     

    1. Disconnect the USB cable from the device, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.

     

     

    2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.

     

     

    3.While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.

     

     

    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears, release the Home button. iTunes should alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode. Click OK, and then click Restore to restore the device.

     

     

    Note: Data will be lost. You may have to repeat the above many times.

    @Diavonex I've done this already.  It did not work, I've tried it on two different computers.  My Macbook Pro and a Windows desktop. 

     

    Any Ideas?

    Bring your iPad to the Service Center and let them have a look.

    You may need to try this 2-3 times.
