Screen Goes Black Randomly?

Sep 28, 2010

I've owned the 32MB WiFi iPad since around launch and it's been working fine for the most part. Just recently (last couple of weeks) the screen will go black/off randomly, and even after I press the home or sleep button there's nothing but the glow of the backlight. Doing a hard reset can bring the screen back, but then the screen will often shut back down.

It doesn't seem to matter what I'm doing (web, Netflix, Youtube, etc.), although it DOES seem like it happens more often when I'm lying on my bed with the iPad held above me (screen pointing down towards the ground). I've tried completely restoring the iPad and putting on the last backup, resetting all settings (several times), changing the accessibility settings, etc. to no avail. I would appreciate some guidance on other options I can try or whether this is something that others are seeing with their iPads.

I don't really want to go to the Apple Store but I may have to if this is a hardware issue, or a software glitch that won't be fixed until iOS 4.2.

Screen Randomly Turning On?

Sep 2, 2010

Here's my problem, ill set my iPad on my keyboard dock at night and most of the time right before I manage to fall asleep the screen randomly turns on, fills the room with light, so i get up and take it off the dock. Has happened to me quite a few times, ive checked the connections to the wall making sure they are secure. Sometimes it will turn on even when the dock isnt plugged in. Hopefully someone can give me some tips on how to fix this.

My Ipad 3 Screen Goes Blank Randomly

Jun 25, 2012

I have owned my new ipad 16gb (3rd gen) for 3 months and for 2 months it worked great with only having a couple of crashes, but then the screen started going randomly blank. I thought it may just need a reset but it started doing it again and again no matter what your doing apps video email everything. When the screen goes blank the backlight is still on if you had any sound playing you can still hear it with no image? To get the screen back on i press the wake/sleep button to switch the screen off then the button again to get the unlock screen back, then as soon as i unlock it returns me to what i was doing before the screen went. Its in repair at the moment having just come back from repaire last week but apple repaire couldnt find anything wrong with there service.

Screen Won't Display Screen - Screen Is Light Black-grey

May 1, 2012

I dropped my ipad to the floor (wood) from like 20-30 cm distance, and although i thought it wasnt a big deal (not to big impact), the screen came black. I restored my ipad (via itunes) and now am not seeing any picture on the screen.. it seems to be working fine as the voice ove is turned on and it speaks, i can hear sounds when i touch the screen and select options and icons, but cannot see anything on it, the screen is just light black-grey. I reset, restore, even try to restore to factory setting, and nothing. When i turn it on, I can see apple logo for like 1 second, follow buy the Ipad image, some times if I am touching the screen on different point i get to see the screnn with the icons displayed, but only for one second..

Screen Shuts Down Randomly While Using Number Of Apps?

May 25, 2010

I have a 16gb wifi ipad, that I just received a couple weeks ago. I use it mainly for web surfing, pdf reading, and ebook reading. I keep it in the apple portfolio case (the one that has the front flap and can act as an incline).

The past couple of days, the screen has randomly blanked out/shut off. At first I thought I just accidentally set the ipad to auto-lock at 2min instead of 5min, but that was not the case. When I press the home button after the screen shuts off, instead of showing the slide to unlock, it just shuts off whatever app I was using and goes back to the desktop. It has happened while using a number of apps, both native and added.

I didn't see anything exactly like this on the board. Is anyone else having this issue and is there a fix?

MBP 2.5 C2D

IPad 2 Switches Off Randomly - Screen Locked

Jul 23, 2012

I have an iPad 2 16gb Wifi. Just bought a Griffin leather case for it. Ever since I've used the case the iPad will random switch off and go into the lock screen. When I punch my code in it returns to where I left off. I've heard that it could be something to do with magnets in the case, but feeling round I don't think there are any - certainly non that are obvious and hold the cover closed.

Unable To Visualise Screen/screen Goes Black For No Reason ?

Jul 12, 2010

This seems to be a common enough problem coz Safari and Google auto-complete the phrase 'i pad screen goes black' when i start the search, but i have yet to find a solution.It doesn't matter what I am doing.Whether I am watching you-tube, or just going through the settings.

or doing nothing.the screen would go black and then the Apple logo will appear, then it would go pure black.Anyone had this problem and please does anyone have a solution that doesn't include packing it up and sending it off for repairs?

Black Screen In Sunlight - Screen Setting For Brightness

May 22, 2010

I went outdoors with iPad and was shocked and dismayed when I turned it on and could just barely make out images, otherwise the screen was suddenly BLACK! I'd been using it indoors a few minutes prior, and freaked, thinking I'd done something to kill iPad when I put it in its case. I was fumbling around trying to find the place to change the screen setting for brightness when I took off my sunglasses for a moment. AHA! My polarized lens were blacking out the screen. Nothing wrong with the iPad, just a hilarious user error.

Got A Black Screen With Nothing

Jul 21, 2011

We went to watch them this weekend and the one started and then the screen froze. I clicked Done to take it back out and then I got a black screen with nothing. I shut it all the way down and came back but I still got the same thing. I came back to it a few days later - the screen showed my movies but I chose a movie that I bought. I watched that with no problems. Today my daughter went to watch the other rental I had purchased and the same thing happened. Now when I click on Videos - I get a black screen.

Screen Automatically Goes Black?

Nov 15, 2010

My iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G is only 3.5 months old. It's been working fine until recently. However, as of a few days ago I've noticed that in the middle of using any application the screen suddenly goes black. After I press the home button, the screen returns but the app I was using closes; just as the screen comes back to life after pressing the home button, I see the app I was using before the blackout closing. Like I note above, this does not seem to be specific to any one application.
