iPad has a certain problem, the screen keeps getting dark on the right side!After I restart the iPad the screen goes back to normal but after a while it get's dark again!It's kinda annoying having to restart it every time?
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?
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.
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.
All of a sudden my Safari screen at the top where the favorites etc are at has turned a dark Charcoal. I did nothing and have had iPads for years so not a newbe. I did a reset of everything saving data etc option. Still no difference.
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.
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.
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"?
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.
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.
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?
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.
How do you get the screen to go dark after x # of minutes of inactivity? I could have sworn it would go black within a minute or so but my screen is staying on and not shutting down. I reset all settings but that didnt help. I also double tapped the home button then long pressed on the first icon and then closed down all the open programs by clicking the red minus sign
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.

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.
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.
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.
