    Hi Steven - just for starters, 'Reset' your iPad; if not familiar w/ the maneuver, then hold down both the ON-OFF & HOME buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears (may take 10 sec or so), then release and allow the device to reboot - this is similar to turning a computer off and then on - none of your data, apps, or settings will be lost. Let us know - good luck! Dave :)

    P.S. Welcome to the forum!

    Hi again Steven - I was hoping that the 'Reset' would do the trick for you - might want to give the maneuver another try just as a double-check. Looking at one of your 'added' images, almost looks like the 'brightness' setting is too low (does not really explain some of your others pics, though) - but might want to check the setting, if not already done.

    If none of these re-checks solve your issue(s), then some type of 'diagnostics' of the hardware would be worth a consideration, but you seem to not have a local Apple store - any authorized Apple repair stores in your area? I own an iPad Air 2 w/ Apple Care which has now expired - assume that you also have no valid warranty? Not sure where you are located, but give Apple a call and talk to a support individual - I just had service on my nearly 4-year old MBPro and Apple replaced my battery for free despite my warranty having expired - sometimes you can be surprised. Dave :)

    ADDENDUM: For those interested in my last comment above, checkout my MacForums Thread HERE - a great Apple service experience for me!

    That second pic looks like you have invert colors turned on.

    This kind of fault is typical of either a problem with the graphic chip, or the connector between the graphic card and the screen. The connector is the more common issue.

    Occasionally he, a firm rap on the back of the iPad to fix, at least temporarily, a loose connector.

    Other than that, it will require an actual repair.

    If you have an Apple store nearby, you could make an appointment and get a free diagnostic. If they decided need to hardware repair, they will give you a quote.

    You can also go to third-party repair shops. Just be sure to pick a reliable one preferably one that's Apple certified.

    Note: this was voice dictated. Any mistakes are only partly my fault. I don't have time to edit it at the moment.

    I want to add another possible cause to this from my own experience: bad battery. In my case a battery in the pack went bad and started to swell, therewith putting pressure on the underside of the screen. I believe that youtube fixes involving sharp hits on the back of the ipad, will tear the outer shell of the battery and push out the built-up gas, so the pressure is off. However, this potentially can cause the bad battery to start leaking into your ipad. Also the gas is toxic. I recommend to let an experienced repair guy carefully remove the display(without breaking) and check the batteries first. If it is a bad battery, the fix is not that expensive.
