Well just had my iPAD a few hours no realy bad screen bleed just a few small spots up up bright. Now the intresting part if you hold the device in landscape mode and gently twist the device not to cause any damage the spots of bleed will DISAPEAR or show up in another place!
This is my video of me flexing the device:[URL]
Now I think this is referd presure on the LCD panel from using to much glue and the device being less ridged as it flexes!
Apples mistake here if you look at IFIXIT they mounted the bezel of the LCD Panel with glue to the Digitiser so any referrd presure when stuck to the back plate pushes on the display!
BASICALLY like takeing your finger on a naked lcd screen and pressing the panel around its edge you will see the backlight and make it go funny!
I think all the LCD panels apple have are fine, just that its thin construction and the way its been mounted is putting pressure on the display itself.
If i was apple id replace the glue around the LCD panel with a thiner material or leave it in freespace stuck into the device from the back!
Anyway anyone brave enough to twist your ipad a little (it does flex a little) will see the bleed disapear, or show up in diferent places.
When viewing a black screen - that is, a screen of black content, the side that would be on the right when holding the iPad in portrait mode has a couple of brighter areas, like the old school backlit displays.
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.
Not sure if anyone has thus problem and not sure if worth returning over, but on my iPad there seem to be three smudge lines from the home button side to the camera side. One at the top, one in the middle and one near the bottom. They are super visible when the iPad screen is off. And I tried cleaning them off but nothing.
I put together a youtube video of speed tests using a 3G and Wi-Fi iPads side-by-side.Some interesting performance results, just don't bother watching this video on YouTube via 3G.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoLg03aIq_E
Im sitting beside my friend, both with the same iPad (16Gb version) both accessing the same Netspeed.net server using the same wireless router. My download speed is 5 MB and his is 24 MB. I have one bar on the wireless signal he has full strength. We checked our connection set up and as far as we can tell they are the same. He is a Cisco CCIE so he knows his stuff.
Generally the screen is fairly bright, even on the lowest settings. However, I just went to iBooks and noticed that when the iPad brightness is at its min., within iBooks the same brightness level is ~20% and at 0% it is really dim. But when leaving iBooks, the brightness jumps back to its previous level. Is there are reason for this discrepancy in brightness? Surely Apple isn't trying to make people use iBooks by limiting the brightness of all other apps at a level, which is too high for reading in the darkness.
Have you ever noticed uneven brightness of the screen of your iPad2. While reading pdf in the dark room I have noticed that one corner (left bottom) is less bright (and maybe a bit yellowish) than for example right top corner.
I've just noticed a couple of problems on my v1 iPad, one being a few very noticeable particles of dust under the screen, but also more worryingly a couple of bright patches.
The iPad is still under warranty but I wondered if there was anything that could be done about this if I took it into an Apple store? Would they be able to replace the screen or send it off for repair?
Two friends have two iPad 32gb Wifi+3g purchased from the Apple Store a month ago. Today, on both, appeared two gray spots (1 mm x 3 mm in length), I do not think they are dead pixels. Do you have news for this problem or call Apple?
Every so often while cleaning my ipad I notice these odd spots that appear like chips in the screen, but I can easily get rid of them using my fingernail very very lightly, and was wondering are these really chips in the screen? would I be able to get rid of them this way if they were?
I've acquired a 2G iPod Touch and a WiFi only iPad. I heard all the stories about notorious scratches on touch-screen devices so one of the first thing I did when I got them was to head to my local Futureshop (a well known computer distributer), and have them wrapped in protective cases and protective screens.(I forget what brand I picked, it was either Zagg or Belkin)I figured that it would be a good idea to keep the colours bright on my iPad (because I was hoping to use it for photos and video) so I picked the bright+clear plastic. For the Touch I picked the anti-glare. I know now that the anti-glare is by far the better choice. I can still see all of the colours perfectly well on my touch, and I've found I can even read off of it outside on a sunny day. The iPad's screen is so shiny I often find myself looking at my own reflection, caused only by the ambient light in my room. So yea, I'd like to swap my current iPad screen protector for one of the non-glare variety.
