Sara, it sounds to me like you have your Voiceover on "When an item on the screen is selected, a black rectangle called the VoiceOver Cursor appears around it. The VoiceOver Cursor is displayed for the benefit of sighted users with whom you may be sharing your iPod touch. " Turn VoiceOver on or off: Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > VoiceOver. Download the manual from here starting on page 119 it will tell you all about it. Hope this helps, good luck

Like the other answers, pressing the home button thrice worked! My friend lent me his iPad and I let my cousin play the iPad. After, she left it on the drawer. I checked it and it does not work! It illuminates the screen but nothing shows up. But then I saw an answer that said to tap the screen with three fingers and it turned on "'BUT"' whenever I tap anything it squares the tapped thing. So the technique worked! I am thankful to the others who helped me since it saved me from getting grounded "'AND"' getting fined as well.
