    I sold my iPad a few weeks ago in preparation for the iPad 2. Friday , I waited at the PX where I'm stationed and bought one of the last 64 GB Wi-Fi models they had, despite it being white. After restoring my back up though iTunes on a Win 7 machine, the iPad 2 consistently crashes, resets on its own, reverts to home screen when starting an app, and generally does things the iPad never did. After one of times I tried to reset (off switch & home button), it locked up with the silver apple, the timing circle and two purple lines and remained that way until I pressed/ held the off switch & home button again (see image). Anyone else with these issues?

    Sorry to hear that, it's clearly broken. Exchange it at your first opportunity. Apple sold 500,000 to 1 million iPads over the last 3 days. There are bound to be a percentage of broken ones.

    Given the flawlessness of the original iPad's (as well as iPod Touch and 3d gen iPod)function using this system, I think the PC installing my apps through iTunes 10.2.1.1 has f' all to do with the issue. I'm doing a complete restore now. Will take to the genius bar if it doesn't work and post the results in any case.

    Restored last night and it still crashes. I'm not very computer knowledgeable but it seems programs which are video intensive crash it or degrade its capabilities to the point that simple actions, like going to the settings screen, do not work. Facetime, Midnight HD, and Plants vs. Zombies HD will crash the device. There may well be others but I haven't had the device long enough to figure out more and haven't been able to keep it running in any case. Now to the Genius bar or just return it and wait for one out of a later production run?

    Sounds like a faulty GPU core.

    I'm pretty sure if you take it to the Apple store you can exchange it and they'll have them in stock for exchanges only. I only say this because when the iPhone had a delivery wait time of 2-3 weeks apple store had a lot for exchanges. They just are not in a retail box but brand new.
