This is plain and simple - you need the original passcode before you can add your fingerprint. If this was a used tablet - you can get the passcode from someone that has it - or you may be able to factory reset it using itunes and recovery mode.

Need help getting passcode off my ipad

First, try going to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode or Settings > Passcode(depending on if you have an iPhone or iPad with Touch ID). Tap it, enter yourpasscode, then tap on Turn Passcode Off. If that doesn't work open the Settings app on your iPad and select General. Then look for where it says "Passcode Lock"

Help. Me. To. Erase. Everything. On. My. iPad. Please. Help

Press the wrong password a number of times and then you can reset the phone.

If you enter the wrong passcode on an iOS device six times in a row, you'll be locked out and a message will say that your device is disabled. Learn what to do.

First, pick a way to erase your device

Unless you made a backup before you forgot your passcode, there isn't a way to save your device's data. You'll need to erase your device, which deletes all of your data and settings. Choose a way to erase your device so you can remove your passcode:
  • If you've synced with iTunes, use iTunes.
  • If you're signed in to iCloud and Find My iPhone is enabled, use iCloud.
  • If you don't use iCloud and you can't sync or connect with iTunes, use recovery mode.

Change Apple ID on ipad

If you have adopted a used iPad, I suggest that you perform a complete restore. This will give you a fresh and clean iPad to which you can register your own Apple ID. You will not be able to keep the contents on the iPad as you received it, but you will be able to enter your own ID.
Good Luck
Use iTunes to restore your iOS device to factory settings

Why need passcode for software update ipad2?and how can we fix it?

If its asking for an apple ID or iTunes account password then you need to sign in with that. If you forgot it you can recover it using the email account you signed up with. If you have a lock code on the tabket then it may be that one. You can sometimes sign out of itunes and sign in with a new one as well. This is a security feature to prevent apps from auto updating and wiping out settings or other people screw with it.

My mini ipad says disabled how can i enable it again?

Did you mean that the iPad is disabled for many attempts of passcode? Usually, waiting for a particular time span can enable agin the iPad. But if does not enable back again even after a few hours, then consider restoring your iPad in iTunes.

I for got my passcode how do i unlock it it makes me wait 60min before i can try another passcode

You need to plug it in to the computer you sync it with, and open up iTunes. You then need to Restore the iPad from a previous backup, when you didn't have the passcode enabled.
Unfortunately this is the only way of doing it, without completely wiping the iPad! It does ensure the security of your data though.
Hope that helped!
