TS3992 The option to select iCloud Backup under iCloud-Settings-Backup is "grayed out."  Why is that and what does this mean?

So I cannot tell if my ipad is backing up to iCloud or not.  Forgive me, but I am just figuring all this out!

Are you saying that when you go to Settings>iCloud>Storage & Backup, "iCloud Backup" is grayed out at the bottom?  If so, is this an iPad from your employer or do you have your employer's exchange email account on it?  If you do, your employer may have installed a profile on it that prevents you from backing up to iCloud.  If that's the case you would see a setting called "Profile" in Settings>General near the bottom.

    Apple has been having a number of server issues today and this may be related to that.  Give it some time and try again later.

    I've partitoned Windows swell and it says the same thing? I'm trying to live capture from my Sony Camcorder through Elgato but I just get the above message?

    This means that the backups were made with a later version than the version currently on the phone. You will have to update the phone to 6.1.3 to be able to restore the backup. You can restore a backup made with an earlier version, but not with a later version.

  • HT4059 Noticed a category on the itunes store which has "Paid" on it.  I didn't pay for those books?  What does this mean?

    Noticed when I went to the iTunes store that there's a place that says "PAID".  I didn't pay for any of those books.  What does this mean?

    I'm not entirely sure where you are looking, but some books you need to pay to be able to download them from the store, but there will also be some (e.g. old classics) which are free to download - your previous ibook purchases/downloaded will show under the Purchased link under Quick Links on the right-hand side of the iTunes store home page on your computer, and in the Purchased tab in the ibookstore in the iBooks app on your phone

  • I am getting a time capsule error that the backup disk image can be accessed (error -1) - what does this mean?

    When my time capsule tries to perform a back-up - i get the following error message.
    The backup disk image "/volumes/data/myname's iMac.sparsebundle" could not be acccessed (error-1).
    Is this something that can be resolved or is time capsule dead?

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    That error is caused by different reasons. Have a look at this Pondini's page > http://pondini.org/TM/C17.html

    None of these things work for me, I'm so stuck!
    I updated to iOS7 this afternoon, before doing so I backed everything up and cleared off a bunch of photo's so I had space. Everything had been working fine.
    A few months ago I'd updated my apple ID to my new email address and it had worked fine. Now, my old email is my Apple ID and it won't let me rest it (my DOB is apparently wrong and there is no email address it's now connected to). My iTunes is connected to the correct account but the iCloud ID is still the wrong one.
    I've tried the 'find my friends' app and it gave me new T&C's but still, the old apple ID
    I've tried the restrictions, but that didn't work either
    I can't restore the phone until 'find my iPhone' is off, but I can't log in to do that
    IT'S LIKE A TERRIBLE CYCLE OF STUPIDNESS
    Can anyone suggest anything before I thrrow this stupid phone at the wall??

  • For updating Silverlight in Windows, the System Requirements say I must have "X86 or x64 (64-bit mode support for IE only)"; what does this mean?

    I have a 5-year-old laptop, given to me by someone else as a gift, that uses: a 32-bit operating system, Windows 7 (with Service Pack 1), and Internet Explorer 8. A system message told me I need to upgrade Adobe and Silverlight. I accomplished the Adobe upgrade without problem. For the Silverlight upgrade, the instructions say to first uninstall the existing Silverlight software before installing the updated software. However, in the System Requirements, for Windows, it says the phrase that I quoted in the "Question" box above. I am not sure what it means. I am confused by the words "for IE only"; I'm assuming IE means Internet Explorer, but I don't know what this short phrase is trying to say. Is the "bottom line" that my 32-bit operating system is insufficient to receive the Silverlight upgrade, or is it enough? I need to know. I don't want to uninstall my existing Silverlight software yet, because of the possibility that I can't install the new software; I don't know what adverse effect would occur if my laptop doesn't have any Silverlight working on it at all. So I'd appreciate being filled in on this. Thanks!

    Your computer can run silverlight just fine. They are just saying that Silverlight is a 32bit application, except for Internet Explorer, where it can run as 64bit. It doesn't make any difference for you, so just go ahead and install it.

  • Firefox cannot find a file at the jar! file on start up Why and what does this mean

    When i launch the new firefox 4 I get an error page titled
    problem loading page - with this message
    File not found
    Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/omni.jar!/browserconfig.properties.
    Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
    Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.
    Why and how do i fix it I have tried reinstalling the program once.

    This issue can be caused by an extension that isn't working properly.
    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of the add-ons is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
    * Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.

  • The battery icon on my (old) MacBook Pro turned red. Then black. What does this mean?

    The battery icon on my (old) MacBook Pro turned red for a few moments, then black. What does this mean?

    penny41,
    Thanks, glad it helped you to check your battery status.
    Something else to look at would be the cycle count, as you mention that your computer is "ancient". If you have a high number of cycles, it may also be a sign that the battery is tired and possibly nearing it's life span, and may possibly need to be replaced soon. If you see that again you may try a SMC reset to see if that helps, but if it continues you may need a new battery at some point. The battery icon will usually say needs service, or something to that effect.  For the later MBP's Apple claims a life span of up to 1000 cycles, of this also will be dependent on who the battery is used, on the older ones I'm not quite sure what the claims were, and I don't know how old "ancient" in your case actually means.
    I provide this for your info, so that you understand what may possibly be occurring.
    I wish you the best.
    SMC reset:
    Follow directions for what applies to your machine, a battery you can remove, or a battery you should not remove yourself.

  • Why on "System Preferences", I do not have the option to select "iCloud"?

    On System Preferences/Internet & Wireless, I do not have the option to select "iCloud". How can configure my email?

    Then stay with SL, iCloud mail is just an iMap acount so you can make the mail work in SL, other services will require that you pay rather more than $19 so your choice.

  • I tried to register my stolen iPhone onto My Profile but it says that it's registered under another apple ID (which is not mine) What does this mean? Does it mean the person who stole my phone is using my phone under another Apple ID?!

    Hi everyone,
    My iphone and Ipad got stollen yesterday...
    I registered my Ipad onto "my profile" but when I tried to register my Iphone 4 onto "My Profile" it says that the product has been registered under ANOTHER apple ID. What does this mean?! Does this mean that the thief is using my phone under a new apple ID?!
    I am getitng  abit paranoid because when I tried to download a new app onto my macbook pro, it says that someone had accessed my account from a new computer. I am so scared.. as I know that if they are able to access my apple ID account they can see my billing/card details. I tried to delete my billing address and card details on my apple ID account to prevent this from occuring but I can't. Please help
    Many thanks,
    Kim

    You should change your AppleID password NOW. And if it says it was registered under another AppleID, the thief has probably done it.

    Hi Poonam26c,
    If you do not have a local copy of a song which you have purchased (i.e. it is available via iTunes in the Cloud), you may need to redownload it before you can transfer it to your device. You may find the following article helpful:

  • Backup failed . Make sure your computer and backup drive are on the same network. What does this mean?

    Backup Failed.  Comment is "Make sure your computer and backup disc are on the sme network and the backup disc is turned on".  What does this mean?

    Just back from the dentist.
    Did a hard reset and when i asked time capsule to do a backup it tells
    me
    "Time Machine could not complete the backup. The backup disk image is already in use"
    I think I misunderstand how this back up device works.
    Is it to be plugged into the back of the router with an ethernet cable?
    I have the Time capsule sitting beside my Imac.
    The cable modem and router are in another room
    I am new at this stuff.  Thank you for patience and help

  • If a buddy's screename is faded (in the offline section), but a video icon is still next to the screename, and if you right click on the name "video chat" is an option, what does this mean? it is the only one on my whole list that has this.

    Hi,
    It could be some sort of "flagging" issue where either the AIM Servers have gone out of sync and you are getting two lots of info  (There are about three or four servers involved with getting data to your Buddy list)
    I can also see the possibility where you have a Contact in your Address Book who has two Screen Names.
    You have one in one group and in another they appear to be Off Line.  However iChat will still Link them and Show their Capabilities when you Right Click.
    One way of checking this is to double click them to open a Text Chat Window.
    At the top is the Recipients Bar  (See View Menu when  Text Chat is Open).
    This gives you the option to chose a different Buddy Name if the contact has two  (It offers To and From options if you both have Multiple Accounts).
    Pic of an Old Chat to someone with Multiple "Names"
    They have an @Mac.com name and  Jabber ID  (As it is an Old Chat the Jabber one is Off Line and their @mac.com name is currently "Away"
    You can see I have a Google and three AIM Logins I could use to Speak to them.
