    Does the line stay in place when you rotate from portrait to landscape mode? That could mean that you have a failed line of pixels on your screen.

    If you're close enough to visit an Apple Store, the Genius Bar could confirm the diagnosis. The diagnosis is free but if there is a hardware fault there will be a repair charge if the iPad is out of warranty or AppleCare+ has expired.

    It may cause a temporary connection when you press on the screen.

    Could be a damaged trace on the PCB, or a loose wire, or something of that sort, and the pressure you are applying allows the connection that powers that line of pixels.

    It could mean a faulty screen connection to the logic board.

    So I don’t have to replace the screen only the wires?
