    I have had this happen. For me what worked was to press the Home button 3 times consecutively. Good luck! :)

    Go to Settings > General > Accessibility and scroll all the way to the bottom. Under the Accessibility Shortcut you most likely have Invert Colors selected. Unselect it and anything else that's checked and this shouldn't happen to you again.

    My iPad is 3 yrs old. I'm 63 yrs. old, technically challenged and volunteer with developmentally challenged adults. That's the reason I got the device to begin with. Now, I would be close to madness without it. When this happened to me I was stricken, until I stumbled across you. Don't give up! It took several tries and increasingly firm taps for me. Now, I have you on my desktop. Thank you. You made an old lady exceedingly happy.

    Have any of you who are having color issues tried pressing your home button 3 times in a row?

    That's the Accessibility Shortcut I was talking about in post #55. Whatever you have checked there becomes an option when you triple press the Home Button. If you only have one thing selected, it goes immediately to that mode. If you have more than one thing selected, you get a choice of what to activate. A second triple press exits the mode, or gives you the list again if more than one is selected.

    Last time I checked, anyway; which has been a while.
