    hi all,
    now where shall I start...i have 2 ipad 3's, 1 16gb which is fine and a 64gb which for some reason decided to show the itunes logo along with the cable. I connected up to itunes and nothing happened just a bleep to acknowledge connection to laptop. along with this i was unable to update the software and also back up before the ipad played up. I have tried several methods to restore the ipad even looked at numerous websites and followed the correct procedure for rebooting and all i got was the progress bar moving 3mm along and that was that for the next 12 hours. i crossed referenced the 16gb ipad to rule out whether it was my laptop and surprise it connected and backed up without any hassle.
    the error codes i get are random 14, 2000.

    if someone can help it would be appreciated, i am so desperate now especially as ive lost some irreplacable photos and work information which couldnt be backed up

    regards

    Hello and welcome to iMore!

    It is odd to read that your iPad has gone to recovery mode out of the blue. Did you jailbreak it? sometimes some jb tweaks or apps could cause that
    Anyway, try entering to DFU mode and restore it, here is a link that can help you with that --> [GUIDE] How to Put Device in DFU Mode and Restore it - iPhone, iPad, iPod Forums at iMore.com
    When entering dfu iTunes will (or should) tell you it detected a device in recovery mode and then let you restore it. Maybe you can restore from your latest back up (if you backed it up recently) l hope this helps .

    hi, i only just had a chance to try now your advice, after several attempts it still has not worked, i got a feeling this ipad is dead!!!... ive read up on many forums and they all indicate the same methods you suggested. I spoke with someone at a apple store and he seemed unsure what to do either except leave it with them for 14 days not to mention pay a fee as it is out of warranty. i decded not yet to pay as yet simply as i wanted to read up more on this issue.
