    iPad "blinks" at startup

    My iPad is not displaying anything on the screen. When I turn it on, it "blinks" or flashes the normal home page, with the correct time, date and apps but it inmediately turns the screen off. I know the iPad is on because the screen has like a backlight on, and it turns off when I press the wake button.

    I did a soft reset and then I had the Apple logo flash on the screen for a second and then the same: the screen is black but with a backlight on.

    I took my iPad to my local Apple store, but because I live abroad and the iPad is not sold here there is no support. I bought it in the US a few months ago.

    Anybody have any suggestions? Is this a problem others have experienced? It certainly looks like a hardware problem but I'm hopeful perhaps there is something I can do. Thanks in advance.
