Little more info needed. What model is it, IE. iPad 1,2, 3, Air1, Air2, etc. is it still under warranty, did you recently upgrade the operating system, what operating system is installed, etc?

One thing you might try, hold down the Home and Sleep buttons for a good 10 seconds until you see an Apple logo, then let it boot up normally.

Thank you, it is an IPad Mini. I am unsure of the operating system, which, to my knowledge has not been upgraded.
I am looking for the warranty documents, it was bought 11 months ago as a Christmas present last year for my grandaughter.
I have tried your suggestion re the Home and Sleep buttons several times but nothing has happened

If it's less than one year old (and I think iPads have a two year warranty?), and is registered with Apple (by that I mean an emil address was established for it with Apple - often at time of purchase) likely that record would serve as proof of age etc of the iPad. Might be worth chatting with Apple haps/chapesses in your local Apple store?

Did you press and hold both buttons simultaneously?

Also you can try going to your PC and start up iTunes.

Press and hold the home button and plug into the pc while the button is held down. Let us know if this forces the device into recovery mode.
