    Hi Tommy, gosh-I don't know what to tell you, here. Not sure if Apple could help you if your warranty has expired. Hopefully other members may have some advice for you. This might be a great reason to start shopping for a new iPad!

    Welcome to the iPadForum! This Forum offers so much information related to the iPad and its use. The IPF has many discussion topics related to: Acessories, Help, Apple News, Hacking, Gaming, Business/Education, Special Needs and Health.

    The iPadForum also includes a Regional Ipad Group for international users across the world. This is a wonderful area to "find" members from your own country.
    Regional iPad Groups


    If you have not done so, please take a look at the iOS 5.0 and 5.1:
    Connecting to the iTunes Store.
    iTunes - Books - iPad User Guide for iOS 5.1 by Apple Inc.

    Finally, please read the rules!

    Hey Tommy-

    I just deleted your duplicate post. Please avoid doing that as it makes it confusing for members to follow the conversation and help when there are multiple threads present. It is also against forum rules.

    Thanks and good luck!

    That doesn't sound good at all...are you Jailbroken?

    If not I would try the usual fix namely a reset

    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start.

    Let us know if this does anything for you.

    Could you have accidentally turned down the brightness on the iPad? Check your Settings app or in the multitasking bar. That may explain why it's so dim yet you can still hear sounds.

    Other than that, I honestly don't know what the problem could be. I guess it would be time to take it to Apple for a repair estimate.
