    My iPad's backlight has a problem, it looks broken, but not completely broken. It automatically mazes itself out after a couple of minutes and I can't turn the brightness down after it automatically goes up. Here is a picture of it just after I woke it up from sleep.
    Before it automatically maxes out the brightness:

    I tried restoring so it seems a hardware issue. It also gets hot on the right side of the screen. I'll take it to the an Apple reseller when I get back to Norway. Hopefully they will replace it. Has anyone else seen this kind of problem before?

    Take it back and is this not normal behavior. If they won't replace it Apple should.
