3 quarters of the screen Black with bars!

Hello,

I am trying to identify the problem. Is it the LCD or could it be something else?

It has never fallen and the "touch" works even on the black side!

Thank you

Looks like your dropped or banged your iPad so the LCD and logic connections along the edge of the screen got damaged. You'll need a new LCD panel.

Apple has fixed this issue on the iPad and iPhone on iOS 4.x. Both my iPad and iPhone display the correct aspect ratio for video out, may be with the next Nexus 5 & ipad 5 that will be différent ;)

Try replacing the lcd data cable

It's cheep and usually 99% of your screen malfunctions.

Not likely the cable, given the visible symptoms. If it were the cable then the entire screen would look a mess not just a part of it.
