I had a purple line going across my screen and I read somewhere it is a hardware issue. I was going to bring it to Apple first thing when I return from vacation. Today a thicker blue line started flickering to the left of my screen and it totally froze. I tried turning it off and it did not work. The battery eventually died. I plugged it in and iTunes does not recognize it.
I have NOT tried a hard reset yet because I downloaded apps here that I never synched to my computer.
Will I loose these apps? If it were one App or 2 I would not mind but I spent at least 25 dollars since being on vacation.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!
Sorry to hear about your problems. Don't worry about your apps. Apple lets you download apps you have already purchased for free. Good luck.
Perfect Thank you!!! now praying a hard reset works! Im not going home for another 10 days!!
Never synced? How did you manage that one? I thought at-least one sync was needed to set the device up.
Edit: O wait. I misunderstood.
Yeah you get the apps back for free. The music is what you would have to pay for again. Im sorry about your situation. Let us know how it goes
IPad blue line
I also had a blue line and apple care told me to do a hardware reset and i lost everything. I also had not synced before. Now it will not even restore.
Any help would be appreciated
I'm not sure. Thats why I back everything up ever so often

The iPad will then reboot itself - it takes a while, so you need patience (so make sure your battery is reasonably well charged). Let us know how this goes....
Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.
Have fun and we hope you can enjoy your iPad again soon
