    I 'google' this issue but can't find a clear answer. If this is a common problem, please let me know. Anyway, I brought my Wifi iPad yesterday. Everything was going fine until I went on the youtube app. My internet connection is pretty fast, I think. The video plays but there are small blue streaks on the screen. This occurred to every videos i played. I assumed it was youtube app problem until I download the ABC app. It is the same thing. Please help me. I don't want to bring it to the store looking like a fool. I provided some pictures as well as my speed test. Funny thing is that when I screen capture on the iPad, it does not show. So I took it on my crappy phone. Thanks for the help.

    If it were mine, I would head to the Apple store and show them...

    Definitely a faulty graphics chip. It'll be replaced no problem.

    you should do a screen shot with the iPad instead of using your phone camera so you can avoid glare, ambient light and also having a yellow background doesn't help.

    I don't think a screenshot would show problems with the graphics.

    Bring it back to the store and demand a new one.

    Did you even read the first post? He specifically said the screenshot didn't show the dots...

    That's definately a lemon. Apple customer service is awesome, well it is here in Australia anyway.

    I just had to use Apples customer service here in Australia for my wife iPhone (dead backlighting), they just shipped a refurb, got it the next day, put the dead one in the box attached the stickers and sent it back. Totally painless.
