    Hello,
    I don't know how, but when I last opened the U tube application, the upper part of the screen is totally black (70% of the screen). The strangest part is that it happens only with the U tube and not any other application.
    And when I reach U tube using Safari, everything is OK.
    Is there someone who can help?
    Tx

    Usually a reboot solves apps acting weird. Just power off. Leave off for like a min. Then cut it back on and try again. I never heard of that problem occurring b4. If that doesn't fix it, hopefully another forum member will chime in soon on the issue. Good luck and post back results.

    As the previous poster suggested the easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. This usually works!! If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!

    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    Yes!

    Tx a lot, guys!
    Problem solved, I managed to turn it off completly and the app is now working as it should be. Good thing to know how to completly turn off the power, still discovering so many things on this new toy that I haven't had the time to read the manual.
    Tx once again.

    Same problem on Ipad 1. When I opened it after using the YouVersion Bible the lower screen (about 60%) turned black. I left it charging with the Desktop and 'Bingo" it sprang up again alive. Now for no reason it has gone back to black (about 75% of the lower screen) I have tried everything on the forum but nothing is working yet. Can Someone help me on this?
