    iPad screen colors all messed up

    I woke up this morning grabbed my iPad to check the weather and the colors on the screen are all screwed up. Tried a restart, no good. Tried a reset, no good. Tried a restore, no good. Took it to the genius bar and they informed me it would be $299 to replace the LCD screen. Any ideas/ suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Anybody? Mine just started having the same problem, out of the blue. If it is the LCD screen I found a place online that'll replace it for $129.

    Thank you for the warm welcome!

    After MUCH more Googling, I found some others who had this same problem. They suggested to tap it on a table or clap the back of the iPad. Crazy, right? But I tapped it three times, then clapped it on the back. And voila! Beautiful intact colors again. right?

    I already have an Otterbox defender case on it, but lesson learned: no more letting the 4-year-old carry the iPad around! Until recently I only allowed my daughter (almost 5) to use the iPad while seated on the couch, and never to walk around with it. But lately I have become complacent. No mas!

    I'm so glad your problem is now fixed! I too had a look last night and came across the same advice. I'm glad this fixed your problem, but I shan't give the same advice as this could also lead to more problems for some.
    I keep getting a picture in my head of cracked screens, and other things being jarred loose, so to anyone trying this advice, please be very aware of what further damage may be inflicted on your iPad!!

    Amazing. My colors on my screen were all messed up. Reminded me of looking at a bad color TV in the 60s. 3 claps on the back did the trick. A Heimlich maneuver for iPads! Should I still report the incident to Apple?

    Hi and welcome o the Forum!

    If your iPad is still under warranty, I would be reporting it in case it happens again.

    After our cat knocked my well protected IPad off the table, we had the same issue. We were fairly resigned to having to purchase a new iPad. I must say I found this solution and proceeded with the gusto of one who has nothing to lose. It worked! My Apple husband couldn't believe it and has insisted that I post to support this solution. He would have dismissed this as voodoo. Yes, it isn't the my gentlest of Support solutions but it is better than shelling out for a new iPad.

    Messed up colors

    OMG- it looked like my iPad had dropped acid with all the messed up colors. Restart failed *2, etc. sure enough, after I read the thread below I tried three gentle-ish back side blows to the iPad and VOILA! Color restored to baseline!
    Thanks for your help!
