Turn it upside down on your knee and smack the back of it with increasing velocity to see what happens.

I am an IT person, know computers well so I don't know why this would surprise me but this week my iPad fell off of my desk and the screen did just as in the original post. I couldn't even do my back up because I have a password on my iPad so I couldn't type that in. I had already made an appointment with the Genius Bar (2 hours one way away from me!!!) and do not have Apple care so was very upset and I read this post by alanfromnewtownards. I would have never in a million years dreamt this would work but I had absolutely nothing to lose so I did it. The first time, nothing but the I started patting all around the back while upside down then hit the menu button and OMG I almost peed my pants from laughing so hard that this is what it took to fix my sweet iPad. I love my Mac toys almost as much as my children and that's saying A LOT!!!! So, alanfromnewtownards, I cannot thank you enough! You are amazing and anyone who questions this unorthodoxed approach to iPad repair can either keep their broken iPad or pay large sums of money to get theirs fixed.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

I never would recommend this, but hey, I once fixed my computer by dropping it. (Accidentally) of course)

Yesha/Alan.. this was too funny.
Alan deserves his 10 points, don't forget to reward him...
I was laughing through the whole post It reminded me of old TVs that needed to be banged on the side to get the reception improved.

Same thing happened to me when my son dropped my work iPad this morning. When I found Alanfromnewtonards' post, I thought it was a cruel joke. I nearly crapped myself when I smacked the back of it once... a good firm smack while face down on my knee... and it worked. Everything is back normal. Wahoo! Thanks Alan!!! You are a stud!!!

Awesome! Prayed, tried it and totally worked!! Gave it a good smack, though!

So, the Scripture is correct - faith without works is dead!

It was great to find your solution to the 'black screen' issue.
Horray for Alan.
