So we put together this guide to try to help. It has 2 step(s) to it. It takes an average of 108 minutes to get through these steps according to other users, including time spent working through each step and contacting Apple. And we tried to include a checklist of information you'll need when you try to fix this yourself. Best of luck and please let us know if you successfully resolve your issue with this.
