    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.)
    Or this - Delete the account in Mail and then set it up again. Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Accounts   Tap on the Account, then on the red button that says Remove Account.

  • When opening the Coloursync utility and pressing the verify button, I received an error message stating that the Tag 'cprt':Text tag has an incorrect length which could not be fixed as the file is locked. Does anyone know how to rectify this?

    When opening the Coloursync utility and pressing the verify button, I received an error message (copy below) stating that the Tag 'cprt':Text tag has an incorrect length which could not be fixed as the file is locked. Does anyone know how to rectify this?
    Checking 25 profiles...

       Tag 'cprt': Text tag has an incorrect length.
       The file is locked. Could not be fixed.

    Hi guys,
    I followed the steps to unlock the .icc file in the "getinfo" screen then went on clicking repair in colorsync utility.
    This is the message i got:
    Searching for profiles...
    Checking 17 profiles...
    /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays/Color LCD-00000610-0000-9CF3-0000-000004273CC0.icc
       Tag 'cprt': Text tag has an incorrect length. Fixed.
    Repair done - 1 profiles fixed.
    However, when i hit verify again it shows up like this:

    Checking 17 profiles...
    /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Displays/Color LCD-00000610-0000-9CF3-0000-000004273CC0.icc
       Tag 'cprt': Text tag has an incorrect length.
    Verify done - found 1 bad profile.
    ... and it keeps like this sine die.
    when i open the .icc file it shows up like this:
    3     'cprt'     'text'     35     Copyright ASCII Text String
    New to mac so I really don't know what to do.
    I didn't get this message so far. What i did before getting this message was to open a jpeg file. I wanted to edit it so when i did right click on the file i went to open with, and colorsync came as an option; so i chose it.
    Then this message started comming up.
    Is there anything i can do?
    Thabks for the support.

  • I have a mac book pro running Lion 10.7.4 and every time I use Google Earth The computer crashes by lowering a black curtain and then asking me to hold the power button down until it closes and press the power button again to restart it. Can I fix this?

    I have a mac book pro running Lion 10.7.4 and every time I use Google Earth The computer crashes by lowering a black curtain and then asking me to hold the power button down until it closes and press the power button again to restart it. Can I fix this? It bugs me when I'm looking at real estate.

    I really don't have an answer for that one. I guess that while trying to get things working correctly, I would use the most basic monitor I had which in your case would be the Eizon using the Thunderbolt port and adaptor.
    When you boot into Safe Mode the startup is quite slow, but you should get the Apple logo and then the spinning gear below it (release the SHIFT key when it appears.) Then after a little more time you should see a gray progress bar appear below the spinning gear. When that disappears the computer will startup to a login screen.

    Hi Alkaf,
    Welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    It sounds like your iPad will not turn on. Take a look at the iPhone article linked below, it provides tips that will help resolve power issues for both iPhones and iPads.
    iPhone: Hardware troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2802
    Will not turn on, will not turn on unless connected to power, or unexpected power off
    Verify that the Sleep/Wake button functions. If it does not function, inspect it for signs of damage. If the button is damaged or is not functioning when pressed, seek service.
    Check if a Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI) is activated or there are signs of corrosion. Learn about LCIsand corrosion.
    Connect the iPhone to the iPhone's USB power adapter and let it charge for at least ten minutes.
    After at least 30 minutes, if:
    The home screen appears: The iPhone should be working. Update to the latest version of iOS if necessary. Continue charging it until it is completely charged and you see this battery icon in the upper-right corner of the screen . Then unplug the phone from power. If it immediately turns off, seek service.
    The low-battery image appears, even after the phone has charged for at least 20 minutes: See "iPhone displays the low-battery image and is unresponsive" symptom in this article.
    Something other than the Home screen or Low Battery image appears, continue with this article for further troubleshooting steps.
    If the iPhone did not turn on, reset it while connected to the iPhone USB power adapter.
    If the display turns on, go to step 4.
    If the display remains black, go to next step.
    Connect the iPhone to a computer and open iTunes. If iTunes recognizes the iPhone and indicates that it is in recovery mode, attempt to restore the iPhone. If the iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes or if you have difficulties in restoring the iPhone, see this article for further assistance.
    If restoring the iPhone resolved the issue, go to step 4. If restoring the iPhone did not solve the issue, seek service.

  • My iPod Touch was acting very weird, and now the sleep button is unresponsive

    Just yesterday morning, my iPod didn't turn on.
    When I tried to turn it on, it didn't turn on, so I went to itunes to try to restore it. I downloaded the 700MB update, and left for school, leaving the iPod at home. I came back to find the screen turned on, however, it was acting very very strange. At first, I thought the battery was dead, even though I fully charged it the day before. First when I'm using it, the screen blacks out, flashes, and it constantly asks me to slide to power off, when I didn't press anything. Did a hard reset, and an update/restore, but it didn't fix the problem.
    Afterwards, I noticed that the strange behavior stopped. Everything was functional again, except this time, the sleep button no longer works. I press the power button, and nothing happened. I can't even do a hard reset. I can't turn it off. The button isn't stuck though.
    I don't know what's going on, but I need my sleep button, because if anything happens to this iPod, I won't be able to reset it. I restored it twice, and the issue was not resolved.
    If anyone knows how to fix it, please tell me. I really need the sleep button. Just keep in mind that the sleep button is unresponsive, and I won't be able to do a reset.
    If not, can you recommend me an ipod app that can put your ipod to sleep instead of using the button?

    Unfortunately, I don't think it solved the problem. I believed the new iPod thing solved the weird behavior problem, but after that the button stopped working.
    Do you know how to contact Genius? Because I don't think I can find a store in my area, when I tried to.

  • TS3274 MY IPAD screen is unresponsive. I tried to reset by pressing the power button for a long a few seconds but it is not responding either.

    MY IPAD screen is unresponsive. I tried to reset by pressing the power button for a long a few seconds but it is not responding either.

    Try reset iPad
    Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears
    Note: Data will not be affected.

  • My ipad 2 just went off. It was working perfectly while charging. I have pressed the power button for ten seconds and it's still not coming on. What do I do?

    My ipad 2 just went off. It was working perfectly while charging. I have pressed the power button for ten seconds and it's still not coming on. What do I do?

    First, confirm that the iPad is charged and then try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until the screen blacks out or you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
    If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad.  Again, say "yes."
    Finally, if the Restore doesn't work, let the battery drain completely.  Then recharge for at least an hour and Restore again.
