One of the best features of the iPad is the ability of it to go from portrait to landscape view, so when you can’t get yours to do that, it can be frustrating…to say the least.
There are few things you can try to solve the iPad will not rotate problem.
If your iPad will not rotate after following these steps, you may want to send it in to us for iPad diagnostics. Our certified technicians can take a look at it, and see if they can figure out if there is an internal issue to why it is not rotating. Diagnostics are free, so you won’t lose anything sending it in to us. If we find something wrong, we will let you know with a quote, so you can decide if you would like to go forward with a repair.

Many schools across the country have decided to supply their students with iPads and MacBooks. Research has shown it’s an effective learning tool, and with all of the advancements in technology, it just makes sense to use them in an educational setting.
Since iPads and MacBooks are not as durable as textbooks are, they are susceptible to damage. Students may drop them, which leads to cracked iPad and MacBook screens. And since they are electronics, sometimes internal mechanisms may become damaged just from normal use.
Many schools have purchased iPad and MacBook insurance when supplying their students with these devices. The unfortunate thing about this is that it can be a waste of money.
Most insurance plans for iPads and MacBooks require the school to pay an annual fee. This fee can be hundreds of dollars. Schools have to pay this amount no matter if they need to repair devices throughout the school year. Sometimes, some schools only send in two or three devices to be repaired, but they are paying for insurance on hundreds of devices.
This is how insurance companies make their money though. It’s just like having homeowners insurance. You are paying hundreds of dollars a year for it, even though you may not have anything happen to your home in which you need your insurance company to pay for.
The only difference between homeowners insurance and iPad and MacBook insurance is that repairing your home after a disaster could cost you thousands of dollars, but repairing an iPad or MacBook may only cost you a couple hundred dollars.
For example, if a student cracks an iPad screen, we can fix it for $134.99. If you only have two to fix in a year, you would only pay $270. That’s much less than most insurance companies will charge you for their policy to cover the damage.
If a student cracks a MacBook screen, we only charge you $199. Again, much less than what insurance is going to charge you for coverage.
Take a minute to browse our website and do the math. Take into account how many iPad repairs and MacBook repairs you’ve needed in the past year or two, and how much they would have cost you if you went through our repair service rather than paying for insurance. It’s likely you’ll see how much you could have saved.
We’re here to answer any questions you have about repair services for iPads and Macbooks. We understand schools need to use these devices, and we’re committed to repairing them quickly for an affordable price. Contact us now at 888-447-3728.

You grab your iPad, hit the Home button, and nothing happens. You press the top Power button, and again, nothing happens. You panic.
Wait, don’t panic. Let’s go through some steps our certified technicians go through when trying to identify what is wrong when an iPad won’t turn on.
Try holding down the Home button and the Power button simultaneously. The Apple logo should come up within a couple of seconds.
Nothing happens? Okay, let’s move on to the second step.
Your iPad’s battery may be completely dead. You’ll need to plug it in with the charger.
Many times, when the battery is completely depleted, the iPad will not respond when you try to turn it on while it is charging. You’ll need to allow it to charge some before it has enough power to boot up.
Leave th;e iPad charging for thirty minutes. Go back to the first step after it’s charged for that amount of time.
So, it’s been charging for a while, and when you try to turn it on, it still won’t do anything. Well, unfortunately for you, that probably means there is:
The best thing you can do for your iPad is to send it in to us. We’ll take a look at it for free with our free diagnostics service. We can then let you know what the problem is, how much it will cost (our prices are very affordable) and fix it for you upon your approval. The following are some of the iPad repair services we offer for non-responsive iPads.

Military families have a difficult time staying connected while the active duty member is overseas. Their iPads are one of the most prized possessions they have because it’s one of the only devices that enable them to see and hear their loved ones.
When an iPad falls to the ground and cracks, it can be devastating for both the military member and the family. It’s the one thing that was able to connect them.
That’s why we wanted to tell you the story of an Illinois iPad repair we received recently.
An active duty military service man was deployed when his daughter dropped her iPad. She was very distressed because it was so cracked, she couldn’t use it to see her dad.
While Overseas, her dad searched online for an iPad repair service, and quickly found iResQ. After reviewing some of the awesome testimonials our kind customers have posted around the Internet, he decided to send in his daughter’s iPad to us.
All she had to do was get some help with putting it in a box and sticking the shipping label to the front.
We received the iPad and quickly changed out the cracked screen and sent it back the same day. Now, a daughter and father are connected again. She was able to see her daddy again, and the smiles they shared were probably priceless.
The father wrote to us after his daughter had her iPad back and wanted to let us know we did a fine job and would be sending HIS cracked iPad to us once he returns to the states.
We want to thank this customer as well as all of the other service men and women who are away from their families. We know you depend on your iPads to get through these difficult times apart, and we are privileged to be able to help you continue your connection with your loved ones.
