    Have you done a reset? That might solve the problem.

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    Try the usual fixes, maybe they will solve your problem:

    Restart your iPad: turn it off, wait for a few minutes, then turn it on again.
    Reset it: press and hold Home and Power button at the same time until the Apple logo appears.
    Force close apps: double tap the Home button/four finger swipe upwards to reveal the multitask bar. There, swipe thumbnails above app icons towards the top of the screen.

    Next option:
    Backup your device and restore it: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414

    If this doesn't help, take it to the next Apple Store, it could also be a hardware issue.

    Just an update took it into apple today, they did a restore and camera still the same like a violet colour screen, what I carnt understand though when it was on iOS 6 camera worked perfect and updated to iOS 7 stopped working ?. They said it was a hardware issue.
    They wanted 200 to exchange it because it was out of warranty, didn't bother.

    Hello Skittles and welcome to the forum! Not sure which iPad version you own, but that's a bummer - sorry!

    Now, I've read about this issue before w/ the newest iOS upgrade, so not sure if Apple may be working on the problem - might want to keep the device around for the next update to iOS 7.x - might be surprised? Good luck - Dave

    Hi
    Just an update after taking ipad into apple and they wanted 200 to exchange my ipad saying it was the ipad itself which was faulty
    Updated to iOS 7.1 and camera now works
    So it must have been an hardware issue
    So end of day ipad and camera now working as normal.
