Result:ipad screen flickers and turns off

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?

My ipad is suddenly not loading any apps.  When I click on an app, the screen flickers to black and then back to normal, but will not load the app.  This is ALL the apps, not just one.  Have tried rebooting, to no avail....|ipad-suddenly-loading-apps-click-app-screen-flickers-black-normal

Hi,Ive just bought 2 iPads 3G, 64GB while on a trip to London, UK. I now came back to my country and one of the ipad just turned pink. Because of the bulk, I discarded the ipad packaging/boxes before I flew back, and wonder if I can return the defective ipad without its box?!Any thoughts on this is greatly welcomed!(To be honest, I would expect a working product when it cost 700 GBP, and has an Apple logo...)Cheers,Z0A2010 ipad 3G 64GB...|5-day-ipad-screen-turns-pink-38

Why does my ipad 2  turn on when I open it but none of the features work then it shuts off after about 5 seconds.  It shows the box "Not enough storage" but the close nor the Settings will do anything.  The sliding arrow blinks but I can't slide it to open.  The clock is always on time.  It's like it's frozen to that.  Please someone help!...|ipad-2-turns-works-turns-5-seconds.

Hi I have a new iPad2 won in raffle. Lucky me or so I thought. Well I charged it overnight and it's fully charged but after it is unplugged the screen keeps showing the charging cable picture and the i tunes logo then it switches itself off after about 5 seconds. This happens each time so I cannot do anything. Can anyone help me ? ...|ipad-2-won-raffle-lucky-charged-overnight-fully-charged-unplug

Frequently (4 out of the 5 last times) my ipad is powered on when I take it out of my bag. I have the slip case that protects the screen, so I know its not somehow sliding the unlock slider (somehow every time). I have the ipad set to never power off, because some apps I use are disrupted when this happens. So, it appears that somehow the ipad powers itself on and skips the unlock screen. I have a suspicion this happens only when I have cellular data switched on.Has this been happening to anyone else? ipad Wi Fi + 3G 32GB iPhone OS 3.1.3...|ipad-turns

My ipad turns completely off by itself (doesn't just lock, it completely shuts down) and then after a few seconds it automatically goes to the apple logo and turns back on.

A few times, Ive been out, with my ipad in its case, within a computer bag, when iTunes starts playing. I get it out, go to the first page in multi-tasking, and turn it off.

Today I turned it off 4 times before I powered down my ipad.Whats causing this problem? How can I fix it? 24" iMac Mac OS X (10.6.1) Home workgroup...|itunes-turns-ipad

I just started using my Apple ipad 32GB WiFi yesterday. Whether I am connected to the Net or not-connected, whether I am doing-stuff on it or not-doing - it just turns itself off every 2 minutes. I have to restart it by pressing on the Home button. The ipad is fully charged (84% - the battery percentage indicator says). Is this a hardware defect? Do I have to return it to Apple? It has the standard OS it comes with, I have not updated any OS. Also I synched it with iTunes (9, I think). Please help. ipad Wifi 32 GB...|ipad-turns-2-minutes

My 32GB+3G has this quirky habit of turning off completely at random moments. Ill click a button--and it doesnt matter which one, or be writing an email and it goes black. I press the power button and it opens back up to the startup screen, and I enter my password. At this point it returns to the last task/screen. It happens 2 or 3 times per hour of use but I cannot replicate it on cue. Any idea what is happening? Im not bumping the power button accidentally either.
