iPad 4 stuck in recovery mode loop

I have been having problems wiht my iPad and I went to install the latest ios. i DID A FULL WIPE ON MY iPad and then attempted to update it. During the update itunes kicked out a error and now my iPad is stuck in recovery mode with the little image to plug the cable in.

I have tried every combo of resetting, forcing recover mode options and it keeps going to theat image and then erroring when I try to update it.

What can I do to get it out of this mode? About the only thing I have read was uninstalling and reinstalling itunes but that doesn't seem like it would help much. If that is what I need to do will it retain all my data if I uninstall itunes?

Have you tried restoring to the backup yet?  Is iTunes the latest version?

If those don't work  or you have already tried those options, then go to Start > Control Panel > Programs > Programs Features and find "Apple Mobile Device Support."  Right click and Repair.  Then try restoring the phone again.  I recently went through a TON of testing in trying to get an iPhone device to restore, but unfortunately for my situation the phone never would get out of recovery mode.
These are several things I tried during my trouble shooting of my device.  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Apple_Hardware/iPhone/Q_28656498.html

(Now that I think about it I had a similar issue before and had to use a different USB port. I will try that too when I can)
Definitely try another USB port.

I'm not sure why you wiped the iPad first then updated it, but did you make a backup you can restore to prior to wiping/updating?
Are you on a Windows or Mac?
Are you using a generic Apple data cable or official Apple data cable?
Are you able to try an alternative computer/itunes?
What error did iTunes give you?

Just to be sure, you have already tried this? https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201263

Hello,
I have it backed up, wiping it was trying to fix the issues it was having.

Running  Windows 7 PC

Using Apple data cable (Now that I think about it I had a similar issue before and had to use a different USB port. I will try that too when I can)

Don't have another system I can try on.

Once it runs and tries to update it gives a error 4005, even when forcing the recovery mode like in your link. This is the page it links to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201444

I did recently update my iphone on this same cable so I think it is working ok.

Switch your device to DFU mode, then connect it to iTunes and restore again.

I just wanted to say +1 on the DFU mode another expert posted.  I recently had several devices go into an reboot loop.  DFU was the only way I was able to fix the devices.

Maybe I am not understanding it correctly, but isn't that exactly what this is? https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201263

Thanks for the advice and sorry for the delay.

I am still having issues but they are much better after updating to 8.3. The odd thing is I had fits getting it to update correctly with the new update and had issues getting it to work before.

I ended up using a specific USB port to plug into out of about 4 ports before it would finally update correctly.

I am wondering if it is possible that the other ports that would error out several times before installing a update could have loaded corrupt software that was then causing crash issues on my ipad.
