    Problem has occurred in the past, but seemed to 'go away'.
    Now it's back!

    Opened up my iPad this morning and I get this:
    Lock Screen:

    Home Screen:

    Ran through the usually options, but nothing is helping.
    Seems like it reverted back after I opened an app or changed a setting, but not sure what it was.
    (Purchased last fall @ Best Buy and not close to an Apple store.)

    Try to reboot the device, reset all settings or restore it.

    And if that doesn't work, call Apple.

    Done.
    Shipped it out this afternoon.
    Option 1: Repair
    Option 2: Replace

    Both work for me.

    Sad to see that you had to ship it out, but at least it's getting replaced. Good luck!

    The iPad was received at Apple, but they couldn't find a problem. Being shipped back, as is. Not sure if this is 'good' or not.

    Can't argue about the service at all! Shipped out at 5:00 PM on Wednesday and returned by 10:30 AM on Friday. (Service center in Elk Grove, CA and I'm in central IL.)

    Say what? You clearly have a problem with your display. This saddens me.

    EDIT* I'd call Apple Care back and find out if you can send those images to someone at Apple. Just because they didn't see it, doesn't mean something isn't wrong.

    Are you sure somebody hasn't just changed your wallpaper?

    Go into settings to check.

    From the OP: "Problem has occurred in the past, but seemed to 'go away'.
    Now it's back!"

    As you can see, it comes and goes. It probably isn't a wallpaper. Although, that's not a bad idea since it looks like the folders aren't affected.

    Right before packing I thought about enclosing a printout of the screens, but was trying to get it done before the UPS store closed.
    I can't blame Apple, if they can't see an 'issue', hard to 'fix' it.

    I did call and check my warranty and it's good through Aug 2012.

    That's kind of what I was saying. If they didn't see it, there's nothing to fix. Glad to see you're warrantied through 2012.

    Sorry, but what's wrong with it? I can't really tell by the pictures. Just looks like a colorful wallpaper with an Apple logo then a different colorful wallpaper for the homescreen. :confused:

    Sorry, I meant to add these to the post. I had a red effect over the entire screen.
    During a reboot, I had the white Apple logo against a bright red background.
    And all applications were affected when I opened them.
    (Now that you can't change that within the settings.)

    What's the iPad for?
    Reading books?
