Bright And Dark Spots On The Right Side
Along the right side there are alternating bright & dark spots or splotches. Dark areas kinda look like finger imprints. Just curious ! This does show up on darker screens, just white backgrounds.

Left Side Of Display With Yellow Tint And Dark Shade
Usually I'm not one to nitpick but on my new iPad it is blatantly clear that, when in portrait mode, the left side of the display has a major yellow tint and is a darker shade than the right side. It's not a big deal in many apps but it's very noticeable against white backgrounds (web pages, emails, etc.). Is this something worth getting replaced or just sticking it out with?

Cracked Screen On My Brand New Ipad 2 - Crack Has Spread To Reach From Side Of One Corner To The Other Side
The screen cracked on my brand new out of the box USA iPad 2, and I did not do any physical damage abuse or anything to it. It must have had a crack prior to me openning it and then within a couple of days, the crack has spread to reach from side of one corner to the other side! Note: there is only ONE crack

I took it directly to the Apple repair center (the one they designate in HK) and they said they would need to send it to Apple for review.

And surprisingly three days later, Apple comes back and says there is multiple cracks and will not replace my iPad 2. THE FUNNY thing is, there are stories of people on this forum that has had great Apple service, who could walk into an Apple Shop and had there cracked screen iPad replaced, but this is not the case here.

I am stuck with an iPad 2 that is cracked, not even BY ME, and may now be even further cracked by the repair shop, and yet I suffered horrible Apple Service and still declined a replacement.

Open Two Separate Apps Side By Side / Split Screen
I am looking for an app that will allow me to open two separate apps side by side/split screen and allow me to operate either app. I have found apps that allow split browsers but none that allow opening two different apps on one screen.

Screen Has Completely Gone Dark
I just bought a new ipad last week and for some reason the screen has completely gone dark within the past couple of days. I can barely make out anything on the screen. I have tried restarting it but with no luck. I have also managed to get to the settings page a few times to try to change the brightness and even reset all of the settings, but nothing has changed - it is still very dark and practically impossible to see anything.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Screen Just Went Dark With No Warning
IPad is less than a month old. I was reading screen and it went black with no warning. It was fully charged and also would not respond to attaching to computer. The on / off button does not respond either. Any thoughts beyond "its broken"?

Small Dark Spot On Screen
However, I noticed while the screen looks great and is very uniform, I can see a very small area on a completely white (or otherwise very bright) background that's just a bit darker. It's smaller than a dime, and it almost looks like a finger smudge, except it won't clean off.Part of me wants a perfect screen, and part of me thinks this is too small of an issue to worry about. Colors and such display on this part - it's just a shade or two darker.

Side Of Screen Is Dim Than The Other Side?
My husband has an iPad 1, which I bought back in January. Tonight, I noticed that the right side of the screen has dimmed in this sort of blotchy looking mess, and I am not sure why, or what exactly it would be called. It has not had anything spilled on it, been dropped, etc., and has been in a case since the day I bought it (a case + a rubber grip on the back).

I am including photos I tried to take of the blotchy parts, but it was difficult to photograph.

Screen Becomes Extremely Dark/Polarized Sunglases?
I've noticed something weird in here. When i put my sunglases on, iPad screen becomes extremely dark sometimes, not always. Yet, it becomes worse when i look it from different angles. Adjusting brightness doesn't change anything.

It might be because of IPS technology. Because, my iPhone looks pretty normal while my glasses on. Or, because of the reflections around?

Does anyone else has noticed it before?

Display Off The Screen Is So Much Dark To Read Text
When I first started using my iPad, everything was fine.

All of a sudden I see the display goes off the screen, for example, I would at time not be able to see the first few characters on each line. Or with some icons at the bottom of the screen won't be able to read the icon labels, basically the text or display has gone off the screen.

Dark Black Pixel At Center On IPad 2 Screen?
Today I freaked out over a line of dead pixels (with a dark black pixel at the center and then it fades away to the top and bottom of the screen) on my iPad 2 screen. I tried some YouTube videos with colored backgrounds but I read it is not effective for dead pixels (black). Also, I noticed that the line is aligned with one of folding lines of the smart cover so I thought it was the reason.

Light Leakage On The Right Side Of The Screen
Just noticed my display developed horrible light leakage on the right side of the screen. It is so bad that the display looks brown when it should be black. Anyone else have this happen over time. It was fine when it was new and hasn't been dropped. I made a genius appointment for tomorrow.

Spot At The Middle-right Side Of Screen
1st: Sorry for my poor english, I'm french...

2nd: Now here is my problem:

I've just bought a brand new Ipad 64Gb WIFI and it seems to have a display problem.

I can see a clear spot of about 1cm long at the middle-right side of the screen. It's particuliary visible when the display is grey or white.

The spot is reacting with pressure, I mean that if I push around it with my finger its brightness varies.

I've tried to get it of with the screen massage technique, but no luck

I've tried to restore the OS with itunes, reset the Ipad, etc... No more result.

I've called the Apple Support and they have validate the replacement procedure.

Do you think that I should replace my Ipad or is there a home-made solution ? I'm afraid to receive a worst product...

You can also take a look at the two pictures i've joined to my post. (Just replace the "*" character with a "t" in the URL).

Air Bubble Along The Side Of Screen Protector
I just put on a screen protector. It was my third, the other got messed up. It came with three. It came perfect except it has air bubbles along the right edge, and a little of the top (touching the edge of the screen). It may be a millimeter off, but it was the closest I could get it. How can I get them out? I'm crazy about these small things. It is not dust, and I tried the little white card and credit card.

Yellowish Screen Only On Left Side Of System
Has anyone else noticed that the screen is a bit more yellowish on the left side of the screen? It is most apparent when the screen is white. There has to be someone else out there with the same problem, right? So, my question is, how do I fix it? Should i even take it into an apple store? I fear I will be without an iPad for a long time if I do.

IOS 5.1.1 - Right Side Of IPad 1 Screen Became Totally Unresponsive
I have both an iPhone 3GS and iPad 1, I upgraded them both through the 'settings' menu on the phone, which to me, is a great idea... When it works properly.Anyhow, straight after update, I had this problem: [URL]. However, now the right side of my iPad screen has become totally unresponsive.

So I've tried hard resets, restores (Redownloaded iOS 5.1.1 through iTunes), nothing is working.So now I can't even setup the iPad, since the 'Next' button doesn't recognize me touching it, and sadly you can't turn rotate the screen to use a part of the screen that is working on the setup menu.How to manually sort this.

Screen Bluish-white On One Side And Yellowish-brown On Other?
Hoping someone might be able to tell me if this is something that needs looked at by Apple.

I've had my iPad since summer and have not noticed any problems. However, recently I've been reading a lot of books on it and noticed that one side of the screen is brighter than the other (lengthwise). The darker, yellowish area is on the side with the volume button. Documents can be flipped but the shifting in color remains independent. It's not dramatic, but it is noticeable in other apps where white or light-colored pages are used.

Unable To Understand Screen / Left And Right Side Lines
In portrait mode, on my I-Pad, the right side of the I-Pad appears to have a slightly larger bezel than the left side.

When I mean bezel, I'm talking about the thin black line where the actual display meets the edge.

Anyone else notice this?

Facebook App - Right Hand Side Taking Up Only Approximately 1/3 Of The Screen
I sometimes use the Facebook app for iPad. I recall, on rare occasion, being able to view (and comment on) a discussion in a way that it occupied the entire screen. Much easier to read and compose a comment. However, all I a, able to do now is see it on the right hand side taking up only approximately 1/3 of the screen. It is annoying to read all the comments and compose my own in such a narrow pane, and I'm wondering if there's some way to display the post and its comments using the entire screen.

Screen Is Warmer On The Left Side And Appears Like There Is A Off-color Of Ipad?
I have never swapped out an Apple device for a screen related issue. After reading through the threads here I noticed that my screen is warmer on the left side and appears like there is a off-color smudge in the lower left corner. I didn't notice it in the Apple Store yesterday due to the lighting but it was pretty noticeable last evening at home.

IPad 3 :: Flickering Screen - Thick Black Line On Right Side
Just got a brand new IPad 3 just under a month ago from Amazon. Today when I was reading a book in iBooks there appeared a thick black line though the right hand side of the page. This got worse until the entire page was black as one progressed through the book. I turned off the device and later observed that the screen was flickering. This device is not jailbroken, has not been dropped and is usually in a leather case. My older Ipad 2 had no such problems.

IPad 2 - Muffled Facetime Sound - Slight - LIGHTBLEED Section On The Side Of The Screen
I bought 2 iPad 2's today. One for me, and one for my mother. Her connection is VibreOp... Hmm, thats really fast. She gets over 3MB/s.. its some serious connection. I also have VibreOP. We even experienced this on the same network (at her place) Whenever we use Facetime... there is some distorted... almost like STATIC sound - I also noticed a slight - LIGHTBLEED section on the side of the screen.. at THIS point, Im ok with it, since I've only had the iPad for nearly a few hours - but Aftert a day or so, its gonna drive me mental. What do I do? The place I bought my iPad2 is sold out to the brink of nothing.

E-catalogs Very Dark
I have downloaded several furniture e-catalogs from several manufacturers in .PDF format and have viewed them using a variety of applications on the iPad...all of them, particularly when viewing an e-catalog in which the collection has darker wood tones, the finishes represented are very saturated and much, much darker than in person or when viewing the e-catalog or hi-resolution photography on an internet browser. Any ideas on the cause and how to prevent?

Color PDFs Too Dark?
I bought a few apps to upload some color PDFs and they look too dark. At first, I thought it was a color profile setting on the way I made the PDFs, but I even tried loading PDF manuals from various computer manufacturers and they're way too dark also. It's like this iPad needs to be color calibrated. Anybody else experiencing this?
