Result:My apple ipad update screen is blank what do I do

Hello I was trying to update my ipad 2 to the latest ios, but while copying purchased apps to itunes, it seemed to get stuck (it said it wa copying the first app, and the progress bar did not move for 3 hours). So I disconnected from itunes and did a reset - pressing the home+sleep buttons together fofor about 15 secs. Now the apple logo is displayed on a blank screen. I have tried pressing the sleep and also sleep+home for 15 secs again, but all I can get is either a completely blank screen or the blank screen with the apple logo. Any suggestions ? Thanks...|ipad-2-blank-screen-apple-logo

This happens sometimes when I am using an app as well. I can push either the home key or the wake/sleep key, the screen will come back on for second...|screen-blank-ipad

I have been successfully using my ipad since last May. Today, the mail screen is blank except for the upper right where it shows the icons for trash, reply, compose etc. The screen is not responsive to touch and those icons are not responsive. After a few seconds the window closes and it goes back to home. I have tried restarting and the earlier suggestion in this chain of holding the sleep button until the red bar and then holding the button for 6 seconds. No change. My internet is working as are my other programs. what is happening? Any suggestions. ipad iOS 4...|blank-screen-mail-ipad

I must have tried every browser out there, but it seems that video rendering is just too advanced a concept for apple ipad 2 to handle. All I wanted to do was watch a video of a meteor exploding, and every website I visit (via Chrome, Safari or Flipboard) just shows a black screen with audio. This is a rubbish user experience. I'm not optimistic about getting any useful help from apple staff, but if anyone else knows of a browser that works flawlessly with video (like VLC did on the PC), I'd really appreciate it!...|blank-screen-online-videos

I recently bought the iPad3.  When I turn it on, I see the home screen and the "slide to unlock", but I can't do anything until the screen goes blank.  Then I have to press the home button and the "slide to unlock" becomes accessible.  Is this normal?  Thanks!...|screen-ipad-3-blank-slide-unlock
