Ipad dissabled

Not 100 percent if this works with iPads but ive done it on iphones and itouches before. hook it up to your itunes, hold the home and lock button for 10 seconds, release the lock button while continuing to hold the home button for another 8 seconds. On itunes it should come up "would you like to restore this ipad?" you click yes and it resets the entire tablet to factory settings.

(If that does not work then try this. hold home and lock for 10 sec, release home button while continuing to hold lock button for another 8 sec, itunes should pop up with the question "would you like to reset this tablet?" hit yes and it'll go back to factor settings). I couldnt remember exactly which way was the correct but either way wont damage the tablet at all. Youtube has a full demonstration of it.

My phone has been disabled

Easy from here, you have to turn the phone off all the way, and then hold the power button and the home button until the "connect to iTunes" icon comes up. Then you just connect it to your computer and click restore. Assuming that you have itunes on your computer that is.

How do i get the keypad working and how do i disable rotation lock?

I am not 100% sure what you mean by get the key pad working. If the keyboard on your iphone is not working I would try rebooting the iphone. To do that...hold down both the home button and the lock button for about 20-30 seconds. You will see the screen go black and reboot.

To disable the rotation lock, double tap the home button. From there on the "multitasking bar" swipe your finger from left to right to reveal the audio controls. The rotation lock button is on the left of the audio controls....just tap it to toggle the screen rotation lock on and off

Ok my iphone that i have has been disabled and i need help

If the iPhone is switched on I suggest you connect it to iTunes. Once it is recognised by iTunes right click the iPhone on the left pane and click backup. This will make sure you keep all of your data on your PC.
It sounds like you are going to need to take the phone to your nearest Apple store unless you feel confident enough to open the phone yourself. Does holding the power and home button at the same time reboot the phone?
Hope this helps,

Sleep button wont work and its disabled

Could you clarify what is the sleep button?:
- The home button on the front
- The power button on the top
- or the vibration disble button on the left

Probably the flex cable that connects the button to the motherboard is not working. These parts are cheap and easy to install. You can find the replacement connectors for all these buttons here:

Iphone is disabled connect to itunes and when i connect to itunes it says "cannot connect since it is locked with a passcode. unlock the phone. what can i do?

To get iphone to connect to itunes disconnect it from USB cord, press on/off button until you see slide to turn off, slide to turn iphone off. After iphone is off press and hold home button and reconnect to USB cord (do not release home button) continue holding button until you see itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode then release home button. Proceed with restore.
