    iSO 9.2.1 upgrade ? Im almost 99% certain since upgrade on power "up" the display has lines across and up and down covering the apps, Apple Guro say its the display without even handling the unit ? when i show them the temp cure by pressing the top button on/off the display is 100% ok until i power "off" and the next time i switch "on" the lines appear then switching on/off button once again display is ok ?
    any one with any idea
    cheers

    I've deleted the second thread you started on this same topic as duplicate posts can cause confusion and fracture any resulting conversations as well as being against our rules.

    Sounds like a coincidence with the iOS upgrade. What you are describing sounds like a loose lcd cable which is common for the iPad 2. This is usually remedied by smacking the back of the iPad as a temporary fix, or opening the iPad and securing the cable as a permanent fix.

    But on the off chance it may be software related, Try backing up your iPad and restoring it via iTunes to see if that helps.

    Downgrading to an older iOS version is not an option. Apple is not signing any iOS version older than iOS 9.2.1. This means that even if you found an older iOS download file, it would fail verification and wouldn't install.
