    I tried to do a clean insteall of iOS 7.1 on my ipad mini, but its now stuck in recovery mode and its not showing up on iTunes. I've tried un-installing and installing iTunes but this hasn't changed anything. I've tried using the cable ( plugging the usb into computer, pressing home button on ipad and then plugging lighting connector in) and non of this works.

    Has anybody got any advice? all my ipad is showing is the itunes logo and a usb cable.

    Many Thanks

    Google "iPad DFU." That should get you instructions to place iPad in DFU mode. Follow instructions, and once iTunes tells you it found an iPad in "recovery" mode, try restoring.

    Note, when you are in DFU mode, the screen is blank, while recovery mode has a "connect to iTunes" picture on the screen. iTunes says the iPad is in recovery. mode in both cases, but if you are stuck like you say, you need to get your iPad into DFU, not recovery mode.
