Display Having Thin Blue Line Running Vertically

Don't mean to be a troll here, but not all is wine and roses with my own iPad experience.I was loving my new iPad until, about 5 hours after delivery, a display glitch raised it's ugly head. I now have a thin blue line running vertically across the lower 5th of my display.I've restored to factory defaults...glitch still persists. Searching for troubleshooting notes now that may be helpful, but it's looking like a Monday trip to the Genius Bar.So now I'm a little worried about hardware reliability...

The Thin Blue Line On Left Side?
I have a 32GB 3G Wifi Ipad and an apple case. I installed a Zagg shield over the glass. Its been there for about a month. I noticed though that there is now a faint blue "haze" over the left side (power/home button at the bottom). At first I thought it was just the shield. But when I close the case, the little flap aligns perfectly with the blue line thingy. So it looks like the case discolored the shield a bit.

Line That Goes Down The Screen Vertically ?
I preordered the 16GB white wi-fi only new iPad, and it arrived last friday at 11am, and it was PERFECT! Screen was amazing, no dead pixels, and no yellow tint, and no backlight bleeding either! it was great! UNTIL TONIGHT, I looked at my iPad after setting it down (in a case) on my table, and when examining it, there is a line that goes down the screen vertically, and left me wondering... WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED! I thought I was lucky to not have any of those problems but I guess I jinxed myself and now I am at a loss. I backed it up and set up a Genius Bar appointment tomorrow night, but really, what is going on? I haven't been rough on it at all, and haven't taken it out of a book style case since I got it friday.

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 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

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?

When Touch App Icon A Thin Line Appear Around The Icon?
Suddenly my iPad is not responding as before. It is acting like a regular desktop window manager!
Now, when I touch an app icon, the icon is selected. A thin line appear around the icon, like it would be on a normal desktop window manager. Then to launch the app I have to double click. The strange thing is that even if I double click somewhere else, it's the selected app that is launched.It's exactly the same for the virtual keyboard. One click select the key, two clicks (anywhere) press the key.If I swipe one finger left, the icon to the left is selected (and vis-versa).What the ****? Is this a secret features I have somehow activated? Is there any simple way to go back to the good-ol' multitouch interface?
I have tried to shut down and reboot the ipad (home-click+power 5sec). Nothing works.

Dead Line Of Pixels On The Display
I just opened my iPod. For the first hour it worked fine. After an hour of use, I got a line of pixels along the left and side that have completely failed. Seemingly completely randomly (no physical trauma). AAAAHHHH!!!! So disappointing and frustrating! Apple Support: I just landed in Singapore on a 3 week business trip. Can we arrange a swap via FedEx? I don't wish to wait 3 weeks to replace this. Plus, I was about to show it off to everyone DROOLING to see it, but now I dont wish to.

Won't Fit In Vertically And Won't Zip Up
I picked up this satchel for my Ipad. it fits perfectly with a bit more space for a maybe the charger.looks kinda fancy, costs more than the Ipad itself, but it looks good.the Ipad won't fit in vertically because it's too long wont zip up, but horizontally it fits perfectly.I needed something for when I want to take just my ipad to meetings or out to a cafe. I didn't want to use my brief case, which is too heavy, and I only carry that around when I'm wearing a suit. this is a bit more dress casual, which is what I needed.

Cannot Find Any Way To Rotate Screen So The App Appears Vertically
Some downloaded apps are oriented sideways, because my iPad is sideways in my Zaggfolio keyboard case, and I cannot find any way to rotate the apps so they are vertical when my iPad is horizontal in my Zaggfolio case.I sent a question to the app developers and one of them responded that I had asked a good question and they would consider it on their next update. Does that mean that I have to remove my iPad from my keyoard case every time I want to use those apps. This issue is only happening on some apps. Also, my iPad is not in the locked position.

Ipad 2 Camera Alignment - Hold It Almost Perfect Vertically?
I just got my iPad2 (had a iPad from launch) and while I'm very happy with it, the camera (front facing) does bother me a little. It seems it's at a pretty weird angle. I need to hold the iPad almost perfect vertical to myself to get my picture in view to do facetime chats. It would feel more natural to be able to hold the iPad at a (very) slight angle but the way I need to hold it right now, I'm almost looking down at the screen from the top. Is this normal?

Thin Case That Has A Typing Position
I have been on this ipad board ever since I bought an ipad back in june. I currently have a sleeve and the apple case for my ipad. I truly hate the apple case and never use it. I am looking for a thin case that has a typing position. That is really all I am looking for. I saw the booq case and fell in love with it but I heard it wears easily and is overall not that good of a case.

Audio And Video Are Not Running In Sync / Running Apart
The video and sound not running together. When it first happened as any movie or tv show ect. would play the audio and Video would get further and further off as it would play. I reset my iPad and I thought the problem was fixed. But now they just are off by half a second to a second. It doesn't keep getting further apart like before but just stays consistently off.

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 ?

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.

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...
