Saw this solution on another post about an iPad in a school environment. Might work on your iPad so you won't lose everything.

‘iPad is disabled’ fix without resetting using iTunes
Today I met my match with an iPad that had a passcode entered too many times, resulting in it displaying the message ‘iPad is disabled – Connect to iTunes’. This was a student iPad and since they use Notability for most of their work there was a chance that her files were not all backed up to the cloud. I really wanted to just re-activate the iPad instead of totally resetting it back to our default image.
I reached out to my PLN on Twitter and had some help from a few people through retweets and a couple of clarification tweets. I love that so many are willing to help out so quickly. Through this I also learned that I look like Lt. Riker from Star Trek (thanks @FillineMachine).
Through some trial and error (and a little sheer luck), I was able to reactivate the iPad without loosing any data. Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:
1. Configurator is useless in reactivating a locked iPad. You will only be able to completely reformat the iPad using Configurator. If that’s ok with you, go for it – otherwise don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just cancelling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
If done correctly, you will experience no data loss and the result will be a reactivated iPad. I have now tried this with about 5 iPads that were locked identically by students and each time it worked like a charm.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Try it and good luck. You have nothing more to lose if it doesn't work for you.
 Cheers, Tom

    My IPhone 5, was backed up and restored.  Music doesn't sync, when reconnecting device each time, it only offers restore or new phone rather than sync option.  I have reinstalled ITunes but still this hasn't worked.  Can anyone help please?

    This problem started last year when ios 8 was released. I think apple is trying to force users to buy music on iTunes store and that's why it's impossible to sync other music and also that's the reason why they haven't solved this serious problem. That's really disappoints me and i'm angry with apple because i have like 10 gb of music in mp3 and i can't sync music from iTunes to my iPhone.

  • TS3406 My IPhone4 will make calls - they can hear me bu I CANNOT HEAR THEM!! This has only just started happening, I have checked settings but all seems OK can anyone help please

    MY IPHONE 4 which has been working perfectly well has developed a fault on calls.
    It will make calls OK and they can hear me perfectly but I CANNOT HEAR THEM AT ALL.
    I have checked all the settings and cannot see anything wrong, can anyone help please!!

    Thanks for answering me. I tried what the help page said but still no luck. My son jut told me that his phone (same as mine) did the same thing and then resolved a little while later. I guess I might just have to wait and see.

  • My i-phone won't turn on, it went off all of a sudden even though the battery was half charged and wont turn back on, I've tried holding the home and power buttons but that hasnt worked, can anyone help?

    My i-phone wont turn on and I don't know why, it went off all of a sudden even thought the battery was half charged, I've tried holding the power and home buttons to reset it but that hasnt worked, I don't know what else to try, can anyone help?

    Charge it for 30 minutes with the wall charger, then hold the HOME and SLEEP buttons at the same time for up to 30 seconds. If nothing happens your phone is probably broken.

  • HT204053 I am unable to sync all contacts on my iMac (which includes outlook for Mac contacts) with my iPad mini, how do I do this, I have enabled icloud on both devices and ticked all the boxes.

    I am unable to sync all contact in my address book on my imac with my ipad mini, it looks like only icloud & yahoo contact sync leaving out the ones in outlook for mac.  I have enabled icloud on both devices and ticked all the boxes.

    Thanks for that, but my Outlook contacts are synced to and all in my mac contacts book, does this not meen they would go to icloud,
    No, they are in the On My Mac account in the Mac Contacts app, not iCloud.
    or are they in a different format despite being in mac contacts?  If so can the outlook contacts be exported in some other way to icloud?
    Outlook is not compatible with iCloud, check Microsofts site if you need more verification.
    If you want them in iCloud use Mac Contacts and move them from On My Mac to iCloud. This will remove them from Outlook.

    You may need to put the iPad into recovery mode : http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808 - you should then be able to reset the iPad and restore/re-sync your content to it

    Does anyone know what I need to do?
    I'm told by my website hosts that I need to 'reconfigure authentication" but I have no idea how to do this, they are now closed for the weekend and I need it fixed before Monday morning. Could anyone tell me where to find step by step instructions. I've tried but have made matters worse and the couple of mail accounts that WERE still receiving email are now also not.

    Hi Eyen80,
    If you are having issues with your iPhone’s camera not functioning, you may want to troubleshoot using the steps in this article -
    iPhone: Hardware troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2802
    Specifically -
    Camera isn't functioning or has undesired image quality
    If the screen shows a closed lens or black image, force quit the Camera app.
    If you do not see the Camera app on the Home screen, try searching for it in Spotlight. If the camera does not show up in the search, check to make sure that Restrictions are not turned on by tappingSettings > General > Restrictions.
    Ensure the camera lens is clean and free from any obstructions. Use a microfiber polishing cloth to clean the lens.
    Cases can interfere with the camera and the flash. Try gently cleaning the lens with a clean dry cloth or removing the case if you see image or color-quality issues with photos.
    Try turning iPhone off and then back on.
    Tap to focus the camera on the subject. The image may pulse or briefly go in and out of focus as it adjusts.
    Try to remain steady while focusing:
    Still images: Remain steady while taking the picture. If you move too far in any direction, the camera automatically refocuses to the center.
    Note: If you take a picture with iPhone turned sideways, it is automatically saved in landscape orientation.
    Video: Adjust focus before you begin recording. You can also tap to readjust focus while recording. Exiting the Camera application while recording will stop recording and will save the video to the Camera Roll.
    Note: Video-recording features are not available on original iPhone or iPhone 3G.
    If your iPhone has a front and rear camera, try switching between them to verify if the issue persists on both.
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    Best,
    Brett L

  • My iPad 2 won't play game volume or notifications but will play music, can anyone help ?

    I'm having trouble with my iPad 2, it won't play volume in games or notifications but it work when I play music

    You have mute turned on.  Mute shuts off system sounds, and some app sounds, but has no effect on normal sounds, such as music.  You can turn nute off a couple of differet ways, but the simplest is to go to settings, general, and see if the side switch is set to mute.  If so, simply slide the side switch.  If it is not set to mute, make it so, then slide the switch.

    Hello Kitty Galore,
    It sounds like your your photos that you take on your phone are not showing in your iPad Photo Stream.
    I would check both devices to make sure that they both have Photo Stream turned on in the iCloud settings.
    iCloud: My Photo Stream FAQ
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4486
    How do I turn on My Photo Stream?
    After your devices are up-to-date and you have set up your iCloud account, it’s easy to turn on My Photo Stream on any of your devices:
    iOS devices: Go to Settings > iCloud > Photos (Photo Stream in iOS 6), then turn on My Photo Stream.
    Mac: Go to System Preferences > iCloud, then select the checkbox for Photo Stream. Click the Options button and verify that the My Photo Stream checkbox is selected. Open the application you want to use with Photo Stream (iPhoto or Aperture) and confirm that My Photo Stream is turned on in that application. You can also adjust your my Photo Stream settings in iPhoto or Aperture Preferences.
    If it is enabled, then I would check to make sure Automatic Upload is enabled with this article:
    iCloud: My Photo Stream troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3989
    I imported photos to iPhoto or Aperture from my camera, but I do not see them uploaded to the My Photo Stream album, though the service is enabled.
    In iPhoto or Aperture, navigate to Preferences > Photo Stream. Ensure that Automatic Upload is enabled under My Photo Stream and that you have an active Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection.
    If Automatic Upload is not enabled, you can either enable it and import again, or manually add the newly imported photos to My Photo Stream in iPhoto or Aperture by dragging them into the My Photo Stream album in your Library.
    Cheers,
    Sterling
