    Question from impm990, from the iPadForums.net Helpdesk:
    Hi. My screen seems not to be working down one entire side, about 3cm wide. Does my screen need replacing or my whole ipad? It is coming up 6 years old.

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :) Please provide more specific information about your iPad model (if 6 years old, possibly the original iPad or iPad 2, both had the 30-pin dock) and the iOS installed; also, has there been any liquid damage and/or a drop?

    If you can upload a picture of the screen, then would be extremely helpful. Finally, try a 'RESET', i.e. hold down both HOME & ON-OFF buttons until the Apple logo appears (may take about 10 secs) - let the iPad reboot - probably will not help, but will do no harm. Let us know. Dave

    Hi.
    Thanks for responding.
    I have attached a photo of the ipad. The screen is in tact. It is an ipad 2.
    No liquid damage or a drop involved.

    Thank you,
    Paul
