I already tried Home+Sleep restart method, soft restore, hard restore and everything imaginable; did this happen to anyone else here. The closes apple store is quite far away so I can’t go till Wednesday; I wanted to try everything lese possible before I take it back
These are the only two pictures I was able to get only when I tilted the ipad into horizontal position and when I tried shutting down the ipad. After of before this screen the screen always remain black.

It sounds like you just done "resets" and not a "restore"--by reinstalling your firmware via iTunes. If that does not work, you most likely have a hardware issue.17" 2.2GHz i7 Quad-Core MacBook Pro 8G RAM 750G HD + OCZ Vertex 3 SSD Boot HD

By looking at the pictures I also think its graphic card issue, but now my warranty ran out in June' 11 so I'm 2 months after the warranty. Will Apple still charge me for this?.

Nobody on this site is an Apple employee so we have no idea what Apple will do as far as charging you is concerned. The iPad is put of warranty by your own admission so .... Who knows? Beg and plead your case. It can't hurt.
However, maybe a restore would be in order. Judging from what I see in the photos, i certainly couldn't say for certain, but it's worth a try.

Just went to apple store today they told me it's going to cost me $300.00 to replace the ipad. I told them I'll think about it. Don't know what to do now, **** if I'm going to spend another dime on this thing. It would reach $1000.00 mark if I replace it.

Just an update, so when I went back home and after posting the response from "geniuses" . I thought since it's a piece of brick anyway I opened it and checked all the connection and made sure they're tight, low and behold it started working.
