Why are there horizontal bands, black and colors across top of display

There is a black or dark gray band about ¾ inch in height across the top of the display (or on side in portrait) alongside a thin red line and a blue one. There are also three light gray bands across the middle that are also about ¾ inch deep.

Update (09/18/2015)

Here is an image of the display problem. Since it doesn't show up in the screen shots does that indicate a problem with LCD?

Your LCD is cracked. Looks like the point of impact is on the top left of the LCD.

Thanks for your reply. It's a 16GB iPad mini 2 w/wifi & AT&T. I'll post screen shots below. Actually, screen shots don't show the problem. I will post a photo taken with my phone.
