    Is it a jailbroken iPad? If so, it sounds like it's stuck in recovery mode for some reason. You might be able to use TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery.

    Actually, you don't even have to be jailbroken to utilize this feature on TinyUmbrella.

    Or are you locked out like you have attempted the passcode too many times?

    no, it is not jailbroken. Actually i take my ipad to school and also have a wireless keyboard. i forgot to turn the keyboard off, so when i put them in my schoolbag, i put them together and throughout lunch, the keys were probably touch lots of times so the pin code was entered repeatedly until it said connect to itunes

    You have to login to www.icloud.com, Tap on the "Find My iPhone" icon, and then click on "All Device" in the top center of the screen. Now tap on the iPad in question and then select "Erase iPad". There is no other way.

    Follow what D said. It is the only way. If your iPad is connected to the internet, it will work.
