I had a purple line going across my screen and I read somewhere it is a hardware issue. I was going to bring it to Apple first thing when I return from vacation. Today a thicker blue line started flickering to the left of my screen and it totally froze. I tried turning it off and it did not work. The battery eventually died. I plugged it in and iTunes does not recognize it.

I have NOT tried a hard reset yet because I downloaded apps here that I never synched to my computer.

Will I loose these apps? If it were one App or 2 I would not mind but I spent at least 25 dollars since being on vacation.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!

Thank yoU!

Sorry to hear about your problems. Don't worry about your apps. Apple lets you download apps you have already purchased for free. Good luck.

Never synced? How did you manage that one? I thought at-least one sync was needed to set the device up.
Edit: O wait. I misunderstood.

Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

To try to fix your problem have you tried to press *and hold* the Power button and Home button for about 60 seconds? Yes, you read me right, 60 seconds until the white Apple logo appears. The iPad will then reboot itself - it takes a while, so you need patience (so make sure your battery is reasonably well charged). Let us know how this goes....

Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

Have fun and we hope you can enjoy your iPad again soon


If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

Apple - Support - Manuals

It’s free too.
