    Do you mean two thirds of the screen is blank, or it looks like the screen is zoomed in ?


    If zoomed in then try double-tapping the screen with 3 fingers and then turn Setttings > General > Accessibility > Zoom 'off'.


    If two thirds is blank then have you tried a reset to see if that fixes it ? Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

    I have an Ipad 1 gen bought in 2010. Doing some research I think there is a connection between date bought and the screens. Thick striped, black white or colored but Apple are refusing to acknowledge. If I can get enough people I will take this further if I can! Please join me on Facebook @Apple Ipad screen issues Thanks!
