    I noticed something about my backlight issue. I have a few spots on the sides of my screen that around look like half a penny, some smaller. When I push down on the side touching my biggest spot, it makes a little pop noise. But when I push down on the smaller ones, theres no noise, and the spot gets to the size of a half dollar. Luckily, when I stop pushing down it goes away. I heard that places books on top an iPad 2 could fix the issue, but after doing this I think it might do the opposite, and make it worst.

    If it does this you should be able to take it to the apple store and get it replaced with a new one. Apple is aware of this problem and most stores have a reserve for problems like this so you shouldn't have to wait.

    Yeah that pushing noise definitely doesn't sound good. A bit of bleed has started to develop on mine near the corners but I'm not worried yet...

    just got my replacement unit...

    I got my ipad 2 on release day (3/11/11) and noticed the light leak immediately. I debated whether or not to move forward with getting a replacement and finally decided last week that it was worth trying to get a better unit. I received my replacement today (4/25/11). The unit on the right is the original and the replacement is on the left. The replacement is still not "perfect" (I know the technology his limitations) but it's somewhat of an improvement. It still seems to leak in the same areas (bottom and left edges) but to a lesser extent. Both units in the picture are set to full brightness.

    You're right...I probably should have said in my original post that I'm happy with the new unit and glad that I switched

    Wow I just turned up the brightness to full and checked mine and it looks worse than yours. I will give Apple a call see what they say. Thanks for the pics.

    Just a follow up I just got off the phone with Apple. I spoke with a very pleasant rep and he informed me that this is wide spread problem. He said that basically there is a problem with the screens from the supplier and they will have it all corrected soon. Some screens are worse than the others. I can take it back and they will give me a replacement, it may be better or worse. My other option is to wait for a month or so to get one from the next batch. I will just wait it out for the new batch.

    As an update to my previous post, I did discover after a few days of use that the amount of light leak in my new unit was fairly noticeable on the bottom and left sides (this was hard to see in the photo I posted). Still better than my original unit but noticeable. Not a deal breaker by any means, just not what I thought I'd get from an apple product.

    I called the apple rep that had been handling my case and he basically said at this point the issue is hit or miss and that apple is working to figure it out.

    I still think iPad 2 is an incredible device and have no remorse in buying it or dissatisfaction with the unit I have. Hopefully apple will get this right when they release retina on iPad 3!

    I wonder how many people have the problem ?

    I bought a black one and it has screen bleeding so I returned it and got a new one but same issue.

    So is it really a problem and how many people have it and put up with it ?

    Im not sure if to keep this one or return it or even if it was just a wrong batch.
    Well my iPad 2 did have some slight bleeding when I first received it. Now less then 3 months later the bleeding has spread so bad that Im now forced to exchange it.
