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.

Bad Screen Bleed Just A Few Small Spots Up Bright
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.

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.

Side By Side Wifi Connection Set Up
Im sitting beside my friend, both with the same iPad (16Gb version) both accessing the same 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.

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.

Backlight Dimming Too Bright?
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.

I Have Some Lighter Spots On Screen?
My iPad is maybe 3 months old. I have 2 small areas at the bottom, and a small spot near the middle of the screen that are lighter than the surrounding areas.

Is this something I could bring this to an Apple store to see if it might be covered under warranty?

Tried to take a couple cell photos....they are far easier to see in person:

Not bad

Bright Spot And Dust Under Screen?
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?

Screen Protector Replacement - Keep Colours Bright ?
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.

Bad Result Of Screen - Light Leakage In Spots?
I had a fantastic screen on my 64gb Wi-Fi, which I just sold to a member of the board, it was perfect, no light leakage, no dead pixels. I replaced it with a 64gb 3g and now when I'm watching a video in the dark I notice light leakage in spots, patches of brighter areas, it's not terrible but noticible. It looks ok in bright rooms, which leads me to believe if I brought it back to the apple store they will say they see nothing as its mega bright in there. Still for close to a grand I think what I saw on my earlier unit should be what I get here, Or do I risk getting a screen with possible more problems. I did buy Applecare...

Wifi Problem Solved By Brightness - Plenty Bright
I am one of the people with wifi dropping after sleep. I have the 16g wifi only iPad and verizon fios router.I tried the fixes mentioned here, changing my router settings, to no avail. Then I saw someone mentioned something about brightness. Sure enough, when I had wifi dropped and the wifi icon gone, I went into settings and increased the brightness. The icon popped up instantly and I got wifi back. I thought well that's a quicker fix than reconnecting manually at least. Then I thought what if I turned up brightness a little permanently. I had it at minimum because that's plenty bright for me already. But incredibly, just leaving brightness up a tiny bit from minimum fixed my wifi problem. Haven't had a drop since!This may work for you may not. I think we may have different problems with iPad wifi. Some may be an incompatibility with some routers, some may be a flaw in hardware or software of the iPad itself.Message was edited by: dearlt Information:

Yellow Spots Are Caused By A Condition Called Spacing?
I went to The Apple store to return my new iPad because of yellow spots against white web pages. When i compared my iPad with the iPad 2 and other iPads on display, They all had the same yellow spots. The salesperson said this was due to your eyes focusing between white and black. Its called spacing. When i went to look at the MacBooks, They had the same yellow. I ended up keeping my iPad. BTW, Mine was batch week #8

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?

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?

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?

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.
