    The touch is working . Can this be fixed or the screen is broken?

    Have you tried restarting your iPad?
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1430
    If that doesn't work,hold the on/off button and the home button until the apple logo appears. If this doesn't work,take it to the apple store and let them take a look at it. You may have a defective screen,requiring replacement of the iPad.

    How long ago did you purchase your iPad? iPads come with 90 days of free telephone technical support. Here's how to contact Apple. It gives the US phone numbers and a link to the worldwide phone numbers.
    If you purchased the AppleCare plan for your iPad the free telephone support is extended to the length of the AppleCare term.
