Does your iPad display an error? More often than not, we use our iPads to check email, access social media apps, open notes or just play music. As we are using it, an error message or logo can pop up. The error screen looks blank, glows dimly and does not say anything. Sometimes, you can even see the Apple logo on the error screen. All this points to only one thing: the failure of the iPad. Read on to find out how to deal with this error, before sending it in for iPad repairs.

Step 1: Long press the On/Off button and the Home button, at the same time. Note that holding down the Home button will trigger Siri; however, keep holding down these buttons for 10 seconds until the screen goes black and the Apple logo appears.
