    My ipad2 is showing yellow light when i go to dark room, also there is some screen bleeding issue
    Should i replace it or not
    And if yes how?
    If I replace it they will give me whole new box or they will just replace ipad?

    Depends how bad does it bother you? How often do you go into dark rooms? If you decide to return it ~ just go to your local apple store and politely state your case. :)

    Yes you should you paid a lot for your iPad apple know they have a problem when they give you a new one make sure they check it in the dark before you go . The screen looks so much better when there is no light bleeding .

    I think you should return it, those defects will detract from your enjoyment of the iPad.

    I just went to apple store yesterday, they give me another iPad but it has some light leaking too, it is better than first one though, so I am gonna keep it
    Apple store employee told me that she can swap my iPad for one time and if next iPad has same problem I can return it
    But I am happy with my next one
    Thanks for help guys

    Yes. Does it bother you that much is the issue. Mine has slight light leakage I only detect in pitch blackness. I can easily live with mine.

    That's why I told you to have them check it before you went home
