    Can't figure out how this forum works. Major problem trying to sign in, but now that I am here it still is hard to use. Why don't they make these things for dummies like me.

    Well, I have a problem. I mistakely updated my iPad 1 to version 5.0. Now all the colors are reversed. I don't want to factory restore and lose everthing I had, but I don't see any way to correct the color reversal problem. Pink is green and people are scary -- early halloween!!

    OK, I give up. I am just going to restore. So what if I lose everything. At least I'll get rid of that dumb icloud thing.

    If your color are reversed, you probably activated black on white in the general settings...

    If you go to your Settings app, under the General tab, press on the Accessibility line. There you will see a line titled "White on Black."

    You most likely have it turned on. Just swipe the button to turn it off and your colors should be back to. Kemal.

    Hope that helps and please let us know how you get on.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad
