iPad 4 Stuck In DFU Mode!!!

Views: 710 Replies: 5
I put my iPad down for a few minutes and the screen went off, at first I thought it just fell asleep... but when i couldn't enter i tried to turn it back on, and it was unresponsive, i thought the iPad had died... but when i plugged it into my computer iTunes turned on and said "iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode. You must restore this iPad before it can be sued with iTunes." which i was fine with so i clicked restore, but it would be stuck on "preparing iPad for restore" or the iPad would disconnect. I searched online and tried multiple solutions on how to wake it up, it would disconnect as if it turned off then turns back on in DFU mode again!!! I would really like to fix the iPad! Is there a way of turning it back on instead of iTunes?

Thanks In Advance!

Nope - after thinking about it some more you would be best advised to

Please make a Genius appointment at an Apple Store, or go to another authorized service provider.

It is unlikely at that point that a reset or restart alone would be able to salvage the iPad without iTunes - can I ask why you are hesitant to connect to iTunes?

There's nothing wrong with iTunes, its just when i use it it stops at "preparing iPad for restore" or my iPad disconnects and iTunes says "waiting for iPad" even though it has already reconnected. If there is a way with iTunes that works, then i'm all for it!!!

Thanks!
