iPad not working but showing Connect to iTunes icon only

iPad not working but showing Connect to iTunes icon only Reply Topic

My iPad has been working properly and I do use a passcode to access it. I had a complete power off earlier today. When restarted, it showed the Connect to iTunes icon. I tried the trick of pressing wake up/Home button with the hope to reset the system, it didnt work. I also tried to connect to my Window PC iTunes. Can tell iTunes recognise the iPad. But it came back with the message saying that it cannot connect to the iPad because it is locked by a passcode. The instruction is for me to key in the passcode in the iPad before connecting to iTunes.... it therefore gets to a deadlock - cant enter my passcode in iPad and not able to connect to iTunes. Appreciate any advice from the experts. Many thanks

Thanks for helping and pointing to the forum on advices. I did try to follow the steps provided in the forum but without a success. However, I tried a bit differently by connecting my iPAD to iTunes (I still encountered the same error message). But I pressed Sleep/Home keys simultaneously to see through poweroff and Apple icons pop-up without releasing. Then the message to restore prompted. After that I simply followed the restore process to recover my system. Certailny it took me a long time to re-sync all my files. At least it worked up to a certain point. Now Im trying to fix another problem that the Cellular icon is gone and the iPAD cannot recognise the existence of my 3G!
