Turn your ipad upside down on your lap and give it a hard smack on the back. Not a cruel joke it works!

You probably need a new LCD screen or a new digitizer, or both. It also possible the one of the screen connectors came loose. You can eithe fix it yourself or take it in to be repaired. If you take it in it will COST,!..I'm pretty sure warranty won't cove drops...if they know it wad a drop..

Hey guys! Sometimes the smack will work, since a hard jolt is most likely what caused the issue in the first place. If that doesn't work, you'll need to open up the iPad and gain access to the LCD cable. Most likely that cable is loose and needs to be reinserted into the ZIF connector.

Then if that doesn't solve your problem you will need a new LCD. I can't really give you exact links to help you with the repair until I know what model of iPad you have. There is a number on the back that starts with A and then has 4 digits after that. It should say either A1395, A1396 or A1397 if it is an iPad 2.

You can find out what model you have on this page on Apple's website.

Just let me know what model iPad you have (iPad 2, iPad 3, etc.) and I'll help you figure it out.

oldturkey03,

@oldturkey03, my bad. I just realized today that I had an old profile set up under a different email address. So I moved to the old account. You can merge them if that would be better.

Joshua Muccio,

It sounds like one of two things has happened to your device:

  • If you can still see images on the screen, but it is very very dark, to the point of being unusable without squinting, your backlight has probably cracked.
  • If you cannot see any images on the screen, but you can see a difference between On and Off in how bright the black screen is, then your backlight is fine, but your LCD is likely either not fully connected, or otherwise cracked/separated.

I suspect it's the latter, due to the reference to the screen turning yellow. If you remove the front glass/digitizer, you can check the connection to the board. If reseating the connection fails to solve the problem, I'd recommend replacing the LCD, as that sounds to me the most likely point of failure in this particular situation.
