My new iPad arrived yesterday. When I turned it on right out of the box the screen started flashing and hundreds of fine horizontal lines moved up and down the screen...then they went away...and then they returned. Last evening the display was mostly ok (with just occasional bands of lines moving across the screen) and I was able to get it set up and also restored from my original iPad backup. This morning the problem was much worse. I called Apple support and the tech guy had me restore the software. After doing that the screen was just 3 blocks of different shades of grey with nothing to swipe to turn it on. So...another call to support. They are going to send out a replacement but I need to return this one first. Will be a week to a week-and-a-half! Mine was engraved so I'm quite sure I will lose that. The wait really ticks me off...definitely not happy!
