Apple iPad

Ashley's having problems with her refurbished iPad, so Leo advises resetting it. To do that, she'll need to press and hold the on/off switch and home button at the same time until she sees the Apple logo. Another option is a DFU reset. She'll have to plug in her iPad to the computer, open iTunes, then turn if off, and press and hold the on/off button for 3 seconds. Then she'll add the Home button for another 10 seconds. This will reset the firmware. If she sees the Apple logo, she'll have to start over.

Find all of the steps for DFU mode here. If she reloads the firmware and still has issues, then it's time to go to Apple and talk to a genius.
