Hi, my ipad screen broke this morning. It's hasn't cracked, and has always been fine before, but this morning it just went off, then when I pressed the lock button the screen light up slightly, but not the way it should have, sort of a grey colour. After a few taps and tricks on the screen it light up, but it was really fuzzy, a mixture of white, pink and other colours. I can faintly see my background (the apple logo), but after a few seconds it just goes off again. I've looked through some forums but haven't found an answer. I want to try and keep away from the 'go and get it fixed at a shop' route. As all the do is over charge people. Any help is welcomed. Thank you!

iPad 2, iOS 6.1.4, 64gb

    You're down to getting it fixed. It sounds like something is physically broken inside.


    If your device is still under warranty they MIGHT consider it a manufacturer's defect. If they do, then they'll replace it with a refurbished replacement. If they consider it accidental damage, they might offer you the option of an out of warranty replacement. Which starts at 249 and goes up (if your device is a 64 gig one, it will be more expensive than 249)


    You can try unauthorized repair places. If you use them, they might be cheaper, but it's use at your own risk and you will void your warranty (course, if it's expired, doesn't matter)
