Airplay missing from ipad
 
I can't see airplay on my ipad anymore. How do I turn it back on ?

It appears automatically where there is an AirPlay-compatible device on the same Wi-Fi network as the one you're on.

Hello - if not already done, RESET the iPad and power recycle your Apple TV and your router - let us know what happens - good luck! Dave :)

By "reset," Dave actually means just power down the iPad (not just put it to sleep) and restart it.

Some users misunderstand the word "reset" to mean "wipe everything and reinstall the system." Dave did not mean that.

Sorry if there is any misunderstanding about 'Reset' on the iPad - simply involves holding the ON/OFF & HOME buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, then release both buttons - the iPad will basically to a 'hard reboot'. Directions below for 'Force closing an app(s)', 'Restarting the device', and 'Resetting the iPad' - none of these maneuvers causes a loss of information or one's settings. Hope this helps - Dave :)

When an app (or several) are misbehaving, I usually go through the following steps:

1. Force Close - open the multi-tasking bar (double tap the 'home buttom' or use multi-gesturing and swipe up):
a. iOS 6.x - press & hold an app until all begin to 'jiggle'; find the offending app(s) and press the 'red circle w/ minus sign' - return to the home screen & try again.
b. iOS 7.x - find the offending app - then press and drag to the top of the screen - return to the home screen & try again.

2. Restart - press & hold the 'Sleep/Awake' (a.k.a. power) button until a red slider appears (may take a few seconds) - move the slider to turn off the iPad; then press & hold the same button until the Apple logo appears - wait for a restart.

3. Reset - press & hold the 'Power' and 'Home' buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, then release the buttons - this may take a longer time, so have patience; the iPad will 're-boot' - NOTE that none of these maneuvers will alter your apps, files, or settings.
