I've tried all I can but I think my Ipad is sick. Colors on all screens, apps etc have turned into what looks like a negative contrast.

Can anybody please please offer me some advise; or maybe commiserations.

Thanks in anticipation of your response.

Hi and welcome to the Forum!

You haven't inadvertently turned White on Black on have you? Have a look in Settings - General - Accessibility - White on Black and see if it's turned on here. If that's not ON have a look lower to Triple Click Home and what has been set up here, there are a few different options. This is activated by triple pressing the home button and is easy to activate by mistake. Hope this helps, let us know.

I am already so impressed! I wish I found your site years ago. I appreciate your encouragement to Go back to basics and look at the manual. Thank you

A quick warning. This thread is a couple of years old. Some of the links supplied are no longer valid; for instance the link to the forum app. That app no longer works. If you want an app for the forum Tapatalk works.

Welcome to the forum.

Go to Settings>General>Accessibility and make sure that the Invert Colors switch is turned off. If that doesn't help, scroll down the page to the bottom and check Accessibility Shortcut to see if it's set to Invert Colors. If it is, a triple click of the home button will fix the Colors.
