Sounds like you have a bad connection on the ribbon cable to the view screen. When you turn it 360 degrees that is a different connection. It should be an easy fix for a competent repair tech and should not be that costly, less than $100. Unless you are familiar with miniture electronics it would probably be beyond your capabilities. Two websites which offer free estimates are or Good luck.

I have a iPad Pro and my screen has changed from a full screen to one that us 1/2 full what is my problem

How to Turn Off Split Screen on iPad Split View is enabled by default on the iPad. To utilize the feature, you can drag an app from your dock to the right or left edge of your screen to open the app on a portion of the screen. If you have multiple apps open and want to close one without turning off the Split Screen or Multitasking functions in settings, you can return to a full-screen view of a single app by dragging the edge of the app you want to remove to the edge of the screen.

If, however, by "getting rid of split screen on iPad" you mean turning the feature off completely, that's something you can do in Settings. To turn off split screen on the iPad:
  • Open the Settings app on your iPad.
  • Tap General.
  • Select Multitasking & Dock.
  • Toggle off Allow Multiple Apps.
How to Get Rid of Split Screen in Safari on iPad Using split screen in Safari on iPad was a new multitasking feature for iOS 10 that continues in iOS 12. This allows you to open two separate Safari web pages simultaneously on your iPad. To start, open Safari on the iPad. You can then open a second Safari tab in split screen in one of four ways:
  • Tap and hold a link; select Open in Split View.
  • Tap Command+N on an external hardware keyboard to invoke Split View.
  • Drag a tab from its space to either the left or right side of the screen to open it in split screen.
  • Tap and hold the icon that opens your tabs view in Safari. It looks like two overlapping squares. When you tap and hold, options will pop-up. Select Open Split View.
But what if you want to get rid of split screen in Safari? What if you're done using the two tabs-how do you turn split screen on the iPad off? To close split screen in Safari on your iPad, you can do one of the following things:
  • Drag the tab(s) from one of the screens to the other. Once the last tab has been dragged to the opposite side, Safari will return to full screen, which will turn off split screen.
  • Or, you can tap and hold the tabs icon, which looks like two overlapping squares. Then select Merge All Tabs. This will merge all your Safari tabs back into a single window, which gets rid of split screen.
