Result:ipad brightness screen dark

I use my ipad mainly for viewing medical books, e.g. radiological atlases. Most come in PDF format and most dont look much different on the ipad than they do on PC. But it is very frustrating to find that the most important book I need looks incredibly bad on the ipad - its color reproduction of images is very poor compared to the PC. Ive tried all possible viewers, the problem must be in the PDF rendering engine of the ipad.Is this problem already known and is there a solution?Thank you for your help. ipad 32GB 3G iOS 4...|images-pdfs-dark-wrong-color-brightness-contrast-ipad

I just bought a new ipad last week and for some reason the screen has completely gone dark within the past couple of days. I can barely make out anything on the screen. I have tried restarting it but with no luck. I have also managed to get to the settings page a few times to try to change the brightness and even reset all of the settings, but nothing has changed - it is still very dark and practically impossible to see anything.Has anyone else had this problem?

Any ideas or similar problems before I try to exchange it.Thanks. 17" Macbook Pro Mac OS X (10.6.5)...|dark-screen-ipad-32g-wifi

My screen just started flickering while reading a book. I have brightness set to about 20%, which is optimal while reading in bed at night.The flickering is random but persistent. It gets worse when something is moving on screen (like a page wipe). I also noticed on Safari while a page was blank during loading. I cant use the iBooks reader at night any more because the flickering is too distracting, so Im going to return the ipad. Anybody else have this problem?

I really love how low you can turn the brightness down in the iBooks app. However, you cant maintain this brightness level after you exit the app. I guess this is a request to let us turn the system brightness down some more, since at night even the lowest brightness level is too bright for me. Clearly the ipad is capable of using a lower brightness since ibooks supports it! Come on, Apple! MacBook Pro 2.53Ghz unibody Mac OS X (10.5.5)...|turning-brightness-ipad

Is anyone else having auto-brightness problems with their ipad? Mine seems to work when going from a dark room to a highly lit room. The screen will get brighter. Its when I go from a highly lit room to a dark room that the brightness stays at the higher level and doesnt adjust down. My iPhone works nicely. It will adjust either way.

Hi,I am trying to find out if this auto brightness issue is a norm or is only affecting just small pool of people which in this case will be a manufacturing or hardware issue. Have went through a few forum thread and realized that there are a group of people including myself facing this problem. Can someone reply this thread if you do not face any problem with the suto brightness ? Which means the auto brightness works when u move your ipad from a dim spot to a brighter spot.

Does anyone know a way to communicate a suggestion to the ipad team? Because I have a suggestion or feature request for them. I wish the ipad had hardware buttons for adjusting the backlight intensity. One way to add this feature without adding more buttons might be to have the volume buttons do double duty, controlling the backlight when another button is depressed at the same time, such as the power button. This functionality could be added in the next firmware. ...|quicker-change-brightness-ipad

I find myself wishing I could adjust the screen brightness quickly using the rocker switch currently dedicated to volume. I seldom have need to adjust the volume, and if I did, it would also be helpful is that function could just be part of the open app, leaving the rocker switch to quickly adjust to changing light settings.
