    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    With regards to your question when an app behaves strangely it is best to close it completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. Let us know how you go.

    I have a similar Problem however in my case the problem lies with reading the magazine. when I try to display it the screen goes blank I tried to do it the the way you suggested however the problem does not go away. Though I have to say your tip was very useful.. Any suggestion on this one?

    Hi and Welcome!

    If closing your apps has made no difference the next steps are to restart your iPad and then a reset if need be.

    Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating.

    If not a reset is in order, this reset will not change anything on your iPad, it's a little like rebooting a computer.
    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.

    Do these steps and let us know how you go.
