Sounds like something is seriously wrong with either the display or the drivers that drive iPad displays. There are many reasons that could account for this. Is this a new device or a used one? I would think your best bet is to take it in for repair. These are precision instruments, and everything is very tightly packed inside these devices. If you worked on this yourself amazing. I wouldn't do this, but it sounds like you did something seriously wrong. I don't really have any suggestions for you that you, because I have no idea what you did. It could be aligned improperly inside the casing, or you don't have something connected properly. I wish I could help you.
Chances are your screen went defunct. Or it could be a problem with some other piece of hardware. You can try using the USB cord to plug it into the USB port on a laptop or desktop and see if the computer can read the files. If it can display and explore folders and files, chances are it's the screen (display) that went south. It it can't display and read folders and files chances are it's the memory or some other internal hardware that died. Sadly these things are cheaper to replace than to repair. I have a Kindle II with a faded out display. It works but the text is so light that it's barely readable so I retired it. I have a Kindle Touch that I dropped and the screen broke so I ended up getting a Kindle Paper White and I like it the best of them all.
I have an old Kindle e-reader that I can barely read anymore. The text is not black anymore but light gray. There is no fix for it as it's simply a worn-out display. The earlier virtual paper displays had a finite lifetime of about 2500 hours I learned from doing research.
I bought a Kindle Paperwhite to replace it. I guess it will also wear out but hopefully technology has extended the time before it fades into oblivion.
I replaced a broken display screen on an iPhone4. I ordered the
screen/digitalizer from Amazon for 16 bucks and it came with a number of tiny tools for the equally tiny screws and fittings.. It took me three hours of tedious labor to get it apart, to connect the screen/digitalizer (some wires with multi-connectors on the ends that are attached to the display) and put it back together. I used 15, numbered cupcake pan, paper liners to keep all the tiny parts in their proper places. I downloaded 25 pages of instructions from the Internet and printed it out as a repair manual. Bottom line, it worked and still works like new.
If you can find a screen/digitalizer for you device by Googling it and if you are handy with small items repair give it a go. But, be sure NOT to order just a front GLASS as you need the combination of display and digitalizer. The front glass thing by itself is a rip-off.
I think the biggest problem you might face is the repair *manual*. Unless some kind soul has spent considerable time compiling one that you can download, I don't think you will have any success disassembling the unit and getting it back together without breaking something else in the process
In all warranties, broken screens are excluded. Unless you can prove it is induced by an error made during manufacturing.
Repair of a broken screen is dune by replacing the complete screen and sometimes not only the touch screen must be replaced, the display has to be replaced to.
The best way to go is, visit a phone repair shop, and ask them if it can be done and what it will cost. If it is complicated and it would take more than an hour, the repair could cost more then buying a complete new tablet.
Power off by holding the power button for 10 seconds.
Press "Volume +" button and power it on (press power button to
start while holding "volume +" until the tablet displays recovery mode. Select the "Format System" option.
If your display looks worse, you should contact Amazon Kindle support. This is the current state-of-the-art for E-Ink displays. In comparison, liquid crystal displays (LCD) have a slightly better contrast, but cannot show shades of gray at all, they need electricity all the time, and become much harder to read in brighter environments.
Make sure you have enough light while reading, I find it more comforting to the eyes.
When you have the laptop connected to the telivision are you running both displays? In other words is the screen on for the laptop and the telivision at the same time? Sometimes if both displays are on you cannot run programs on both. When you use the FN key and press the display button(usually F5) it should cycle thru each time you press it. Try pressing it until you only have the display showing on the televison only. Doing this should make the telivision the main display.
