Blue Screen Of Death Fixes?

when i'm syncing my ipad - the first thing it does is try to backup the ipad. It will run for a while and the BCOD appears. happens everytime. I bought and ran a registry cleaner because I read somewhere the 96% of problems are caused by the registry. I'm in the 4% group. Loaded itunes 10 - same result. If I restore the ipad to factory defaults - it works first time. next attempt then fails..I tried different usb ports - same result, have a usb card on order with a VIA chipset set as I read this helps. what else can I do short of returning the ipad. The ipad is a 65gb wi-fi only.

Ipad 2 Is Getting A Blue Screen Of Death
Just a couple of days ago, my Ipad has started getting a blue screen of death. It gets a blue screen, and then shuts itself off. When it restarts, it's unresponsive for about 4-5 minutes before letting me using it again. When it lets me use it again, I have about 10 minutes before it starts all over. I'm hoping this is something that can be fixed whether hardware or software is the problem. I definitely don't want to have to spend $700 for the new iPad as good as it may be. I'm also serving in Manama, Bahrain for the next couple of years, and this island is no where near an Apple store.

Blue Screen/1600
I am from Singapore. I had just got my iPad for 1 week. While I was just surfing the net on safari, on a google search page, suddenly my entire screen went blue (the very similar blue when windows crashed)!!!

The first thing I did was to wait. After about 3 minutes, nothing changed. I tried pressing the <home-button>, no response. Then also the <Power Button> no response either. Then I did a hard-reset I knew from the iPhone, pressing both the <Power> and <Home> button together for 10 sec. The screen went black. Like the iPhone, I have put my iPad into Recovery-mode.

I quickly connect my iPad to my MacBook iTunes, hopefully to recover it. iTunes detected the iPad and knows it is in recovery mode and said that I need to download the latest firmware and do a recovery. The firmware complete download but the recovery met with fatal error with error-code "1600"

I tried every suggestion the Apple site suggested, like switching USB port and creating a new admin account on my MacBook. Nothing works. The recovery still fails with code "1600".

Can anyone help me? what must I do? I still just can't believe such a pretty apple device could crashed so fatally.

Top Of Screen Has A Blue Tint?
I bought a new iPad in Carrefour, Cali, Colombia. The screen has a blue tint on top that is more visible with grey backgrounds.

In Colombia there´s not Apple Stores, just resellers. There aren't people from Apple in Carrefour.

I´m not sure if Carrefour will change my New iPad "just for a small blue shadow" on the screen...

Blue Line Flickering On Screen
I had a purple line going across my screen and I read somewhere it is a hardware issue. I was going to bring it to Apple first thing when I return from vacation. Today a thicker blue line started flickering to the left of my screen and it totally froze. I tried turning it off and it did not work. The battery eventually died. I plugged it in and iTunes does not recognize it.I have NOT tried a hard reset yet because I downloaded apps here that I never synched to my computer.Will I loose these apps? If it were one App or 2 I would not mind but I spent at least 25 dollars since being on vacation.

Blue Pixels Across Middle Of Screen
Got mine via the us last thursday and was fine for a few hours then all of a sudden the screen just changed to blurry images and colours. I done a restore which seemed to sort the problem but i now have blue pixels across the screen in various places which even curve around the app icons, anyone else has this. As i am in UK i was worried about this and went in to my store in Newcastle and they said no support in UK yet so may be a hardware issue that possibly will need to be returned to US but he told me to ring UK, They have clarified the situation and told me not to worry as the ipad is NOT going to be country specific and they will replace my unit as soon as it is released in UK at end of may, explained that it cant be changed or fixed here yet as no ipads or parts in UK.

Small Blue Streaks On The Screen
I 'google' this issue but can't find a clear answer. If this is a common problem, please let me know. Anyway, I brought my Wifi iPad yesterday. Everything was going fine until I went on the youtube app. My internet connection is pretty fast, I think. The video plays but there are small blue streaks on the screen. This occurred to every videos i played. I assumed it was youtube app problem until I download the ABC app. It is the same thing. Please help me. I don't want to bring it to the store looking like a fool. I provided some pictures as well as my speed test. Funny thing is that when I screen capture on the iPad, it does not show. So I took it on my crappy phone. Thanks for the help.

New IPad 2 Screen Has A Blue Tint
Its annoying as hell. I can't tell which links I've clicked or not clicked on Google searches. They look virtually the same (purple and blue). Last year I went through 3 iPads that had light bleeding. I love Apple, but I've exchanged the last 3 items I've bought from them (iPad 2, 4S (brown spots on the screen), and an AEBS that sounded like an old sprinkler system.

Blue Pixels Appearing On The Screen
I have blue pixels appearing on the IPad screen. Looks to me like the synchronization of the red, green and blue is off. Done the usual nonsense of resetting everything in full from backup and this hasn't helped. I get blue pixels across all apps and pictures so a centralized problem. When I used to work with CRT projectors you had to align the red, green and blue to create colors properly so I recognize the issue from that. Is my IPad broken? Is this a known fault? 

Just a further note, this is working on and off, it is not permanently broken, it can even start and stop working when I've got the IPad running and jumping between the web browser and main screen.

Blue Line Across Screen - Home Button
I got my iPad a couple if days ago and it has developed a blue line going across the bottom of the screen, just above the home button. I has read about this problem but mine seems slightly different, in that the line only shows when it's against a black background, against any other colour it isn't visible, so it's not a dead pixel or pixels. I have done a restore and it worked for about ten minutes but it has came back now.Is there any other solution I could try or is it back to the shop for me? Information:Lenovo iPhone OS 3.1.2

Screen Turns Blue When Page Scroll In Safari
When I scroll down a page in Safari I use my thumb along the right side to scroll; however, often times the screen turns blue signifying a copy/paste, not what I want to happen. Using the text area to scroll one needs to be careful not to open a "hot" link to another web page.Sure would be nice to have a wider right-side scroll area that isn't sensitive to a copy request.

Blue Line Appeared About Half Inches From Top Of Screen
I have been using my 64 gb iPad foe about an hour. After 45 minutes a blue line appeared about a half inch from the top of the screen. It is a pixel wide and runs the entire width of the screen. I have turned it off and on but it's still there. I live the machine but I can't live with this major distraction. Is anyone out there having the same problem?

Does The Apple Case Turn Blue With ALL Screen Protectors?
Just recently, my iPad scratched so I'm now becoming OCD about my cases and screen protectors. I was planning on getting the Zagg Invisibleshield along with the official iPad case from Apple. However, I've been hearing bad things that case turns the iPad blue!

I still plan on getting the Apple case but I was wondering if ALL screen protectors are affected by this? I was thinking of switching over to a simpler screen protector that doesn't involve spraying a solution.

Reset Various Fixes - WIFI
Picked up my WiFi Ipad on Saturday and have been pleased so far. Tried to turn it on after work today and no response. Plugged it in and no response. Tried to sync it and no response. Then I tried various fixes from the manual and eventually brought it back to life with a reset (home and power switch held down).

IOS 3.2.1 Fixes Apple Store?
Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere yet, too lazy to search today, but now when you view an app in the app store in one of the top app lists it no longer resets you back to the top 10 when you go back to the list you were in. Wow that's one long sentence. Hope that was clear...those that noticed the annoyance before know what I'm speaking of.

Survives Near Death Experience - Incase NeoPrene Slip Sleeve
I own and like the incase neoprene slip sleeve. It comes with a flexible rubber stand that can be used to hold the iPad in landscape mode. You can see it here:'t use it.I left my iPad on the table next to my couch - on this Incase stand - while I was eating dinner. The table is 3 ft high - on a cement floor. Heard something fall - walked into the room and found the iPad had ejected out of this stand - it fell backwards and was hanging over the edge of the table.

Blue Tooth Pan Inquiry?
I jailbroke my iPad for one reason. So that I can run iTether and get an internet connection from my iPhone. It's an excellent thing!But now, I am conflicted. I have to make a choice......Upgrade now to 4.2 with all the sexiness - and lose my beloved tethering?Or wait until the evil jail-breaking code monkeys break the back of 4.2?I am so conflicted!BTW. Does anyone know why Apple elected to not support the Bluetooth PAN on the iPad? They do on all their Macs.

Yellow To Blue Gradient
I just noticed that my iPad 3G 64 GB has almost a gradient color issue. The left side of the iPad - when positioned in portrait - is noticeably warmer (more yellow) than the right side which is a cool blue color. For some perspective, its especially noticeble when comparing the left and right borders of the macforums. I previously had a backlight bleeding issue with my iPad (confirmed by an Apple Genius) that I exchanged for this one. I actually took the gradient iPad into the store to have them look at it, but its not as dramatic as the backlight bleeding and thus I was told it was normal - I had the same Genius working with me and he was reluctant to give me another exchange.

Cydia App Blue Tooth ?
I have just bought a Belkin Bluetooth music receiver for my iPad. I have used it for outputting my music and the sound from video from the iPad with no problems. The issue I am having is I start an app (looptastic) the sound comes out of the iPad and not the stereo. I would think this is an apple restriction not to let apps output sound.

I have jail broken my iPad with spirit so I have Cydia installed my question is is there an cydia app that makes all the sounds output from the iPad ?

Not Yellow Or Blue...RED Tinted It?
I bought my iPad on launch day; I walked into 1 Stockton Street some time in the afternoon and picked up a shiny new black 16GB wifi new iPad. (I still have no idea why people waited in line overnight...I didn't even have to wait in line to play with a demo unit)Anyway, the iPad works great (except for all those known Safari bugs so far). However, I am a "serious hobbyist" photographer or whatever you want to call it, so accurate color balance is fairly important to me. I had been hearing about yellow screens, so one of the first things I did was compare the iPad versus my NEC IPS LCD for editing; immediately, I noticed a rosy, red tint across the whole screen.

Okay, now here's why I made the thread: the rosy red screen did not bother me until yesterday due to the subtlety. If you put the two screens side by side, the difference is very obvious; however, if that was the only monitor you ever looked at in your entire life, you'd say it's fine. Plus, I read the yellow-tint threads and mine is way more pleasant to look at.Here's the issue: my good friend showed up last night with his new iPad (also a black wifi 16GB). Well, his screen looks brilliant!! The whites have no hint of blue, yellow, or red, they are just WHITE! Everything else on our screens seems identical (brightness, sharpeness, contrast). I was kind of shocked at how much nicer his looked---as soon as I started using it I noticed his screen was different.

I don't do any photo-editing or anything like that on the iPad; so technically I don't NEED perfectly accurate colors. But then again, I never really NEEDED an iPad in the first place, so if I do have one, I want it to be just right!So me get off the fence. Do I keep my already beloved, working fine, many apps installed, slightly red-tinted iPad? Or should I only accept the best and return it for a better one? Of course this time, I'd open it up in the store...
