    I got a new (refurb) iPad 2 yesterday from Apple/insurance company, and when I first turned it on it had a weird line that looked like "interference" (for want of a better word) running vertically (when in Landscape mode), about 1 or 2 pixels wide. If I looked closer, the area around the line also seemed to be "shimmering" slightly.

    It was one of those things that looks like a hardware fault, if that makes sense, it didn't look to be an app/software issue.

    It went away after a few seconds, then it re-appeared again, briefly, later last night, after hours of being fine.

    The iPad was fine all day today, but it happened again a few moments ago, again only briefly.

    The line is kinda "animated" and multi-coloured.

    Any ideas?
