    hey fellas
    new here, sorry if this is a repost..just bought a new iPad last week, and I don't know if this is normal of all ipad.

    problem:
    when watching video from youtube, i can see 4 red lines flashing down the screen in full screen mode..you can see it clearly especially if the background of the video is black. it'll be on for a little bit then go away, then come back on again..it's really annoying.. is this normal or do i have a defect in the video software??

    brand new ipad from best buy. firmware 3.2.2 (out of luck for JB as i found out)..

    thanks in advance and sorry if it's a repost..i tried searching for "red flashing line" "red line when watching video" "red lines" "flashing red lines" ..etc..no good...need a direct answer..

    Thanks everyone for the confirmation. Took it back to best buy tonight, waits 15mins while they check out the issue. They went and got me a brand new one. The new one works perfectly, no more red lines.

    This thread can be lock now..

    Thanks :)
