From time to time the iPad screen goes black, right in the middle of whatever I'm doing. It can happen seconds after turning on the iPad, or much later. Doesn't seem to be application specific.

Only solution is to press the button at the bottom, which brings the screen back but closes the application. So I then have to relaunch the app. Annoying.

Anyone else seen this behavior? It's a 3G model.

I've had my 3G for about a week now, never seen this issue. I'd recommend going to an apple store to have it looked at. It sounds like there is something wrong with the screen itself.

Hi
Yes I have this same problem.
Intermittently on restore and after rotation the screen goes blank for several seconds. If I push the button the screen comes back and you just see the app closing.

I did buy a genuine apple vga connector and the problem seemed to start after using this for the first time but that could be a coincidence.

Did you find a fix?

Just for clarity .... are these iPad's jailbroken by any chance ?

I have the same problem on a 64gb nonjailbroken 3G. It seems like it is closing the app and putting the screen lock on randomly. I will take it back on Friday to see what they can do.

I have the same issue with my non-jailbroken iPad. not a big deal normally, but I have seen it happen a few times. No strange cables either. Random, not tied to any particular app either. Doesn't freeze or anything, just goes black and you are back at the icons when you push the home button.

Still not seeing this.


I am seeing the entire thing lock up when playing streaming videos all too often. It's not directly reproducible. Have seen enough, that I'm pretty sure I'll be springing for the additional year warranty, and the number of times I've bought those in the last 40 years is still in the single digits.

The only way out of the lock up is to hold both the power and home buttons until it shuts down. The first power on after that is in excess of 2 minutes.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

I've had this happen to me from time to time. A minor annoyance, I just figured it was a software glitch.

I have a first gen iPad, 64g, and for no apparent reason, the screen goes black and whatever app I am using is closed on me. It seems to be happening more and more frequently, especially when loading a blog, or trying to watch a YouTube video. I try to open safari or youtube again and it will often crash several times before it may or may not decide to load for me. It is extremely annoying and getting to the point where I don't want to use it! I lov(ed) my iPad!
