Your screen must be messed up.Did it drop or was the screen squeezed by something?

hmm could be screen issue due to something coming loose internally - do you have an Apple Store in Kenya?

Most people that have had issues have had the iPad replaced without questions asked by Apple.

.it may be the invisisheet(top part) and not the screen itself I heard that pressure from the leather covers n such can do that.

iPads do not have a hard reset! does the screen display those colours/lines from the moment you start it up?

12:54AM Thu, December 01 2011
