I'm trying to change my Apple ID password from my iPad, but I'm getting an error saying "Invalid year.":

enter image description here

I can't find any information on that error from Google, only a few threads where people are complaining about the same problem.

The date and time on my iPad are correct - April the 7th 2014 at the time of this question, so it's not that.

You've checked the one thing I would on iPad. What happens if you log in to appleid.apple.com from a browser and check the personal details on the account in question? –  bmike Apr 7 '14 at 16:52
@bmike I can log in, but what should I look for? There's a menu with various info. –  sashoalm Apr 7 '14 at 17:37
Being able to log in is the main test. Sorry it wasn't something easily fixable on the server side. –  bmike Apr 8 '14 at 2:19
