    Backside Illumination Quit

    The backside illumination on my wife's 3 month old iPad3 has stopped working. I don't know if she turned it off by accident or the iPad has failed. Going through the menus and google searching turns up nothing. Can anyone give me a clue why this function no longer works and how to turn it back on?

    Let's check the most obvious issue first, go into Settings > Brightness & Wallpaper, make sure the brightness is set to your needs. If that fails to resolve the issue, I would recommend taking the device to an Apple store and having them take a look. It could be that the device has a defective component. I'm not up-to-speed on iPad jailbreaks and am wondering, if the device is jailbroken, if a tweak is causing the issue.

    The backside illumination is the white flash you see just before a picture is taken. Playing with the brightness & wallpaper only seems to affect the screen. I do wish there was an apple store closer then 300 miles.

    Forgive me, I completely misunderstood you.. I thought you were referring to the screen light. Disregard my advice in this case.

    The iPad2 does not have what is called backside illumination, the iPad3 and iPadmini do. It is not a flash Apple Back-illuminated sensor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia It is this function that has stopped working on my wife's iPad3

    It sounds like your only choice is to take the device to an Apple store and have it replaced.

    If the 300 mile trip is too much, contact Apple and when they agree to replace your iPad, ask for return directions.
