    My IPad 2 just yesterday started showing this black bar in the middle of the screen which becomes visible only on facebook's website, and only when I am scrolling up or down. Once I stop, it disappears. No other website has produced this bar. Anyone ever had this happen or know what it could be? I am thinking of going to Radio shack, where my iPad was purchased or set up a meeting at the Apple store to hopefully get this fixed.

    Maybe it's the Facebook app? Try deleting and reinstalling it to see if that takes care of it.

    Otherwise, yeah, I'd take it in.

    If it is only happening in FaceBook it is unlikely to be a problem with the iPad.

    If you are using Safari (and not the FaceBook app) then try going into Settings > Safari and Clear Cookies and Data. You'll have to log in again, but it should clear things up.

    Thank you for the suggestions guys. It turned out that it is nothing but a scrolling bar which I did not notice before. It does not always appear but it was strange because it was on the side of the screen going up or down on Facebook, and now some other sites. Now on Facebook that scrolling line is at the bottom as well as the sides, yet it was directly in the middle before. Funny how I did not pick up on these subtleties before.

    No problem. (heh) I would never have guessed you were looking at the scrolling bars. I envisioned something much more intrusive and annoying.

    Thanks for letting us know the score. :)
