    I have an iPad 1 (i also have the 3 and 4, I'm not old school:) that I am trying to gift away. When I booted it up I now see a black screen. I do not think it is dead pixels because it sometimes turns colored lines and the box can get smaller or larger...HELP!

    I tried to restore from iTunes but it did not work and there are no updates, last update is 5.1.1

    Got tweaked or sat on.
    Probably. Hardware for sure though.

    None of those. I am at aw trying to figure it out...but the weird thing is it will flash back to normal at times. Makes no sense

    Might be worth having Apple take a look at it if a store is close to you.
    They're likely to replace it (don't know exactly what they charge) with a refurbished.

    That's what I feared...I could probably buy a refurb iPad 2 for the price of the genius bar replacement.
