Resolved Question:

My Ipad keeps blinking off. In other words, for no apparent reason, I'll be on Safari (for instance) and when I change to a new screen, my Ipad screen goes to black. When I hit the button on the bottom to "open" it, it comes back to the screen I was viewing before I tried to move to the new screen.
I rec'd this IPad as a gift last Xmas. It is first generation.

Thanks for contacting I am Cris.

Can you please try the following:

Press and hold both the home button (located at the front of iPad) and the top button (wake/sleep button)

Press and hold both buttons together until the iPad shuts off and the apple logo appears. Give it about 1-2mins to reach the home screen.

This is a power reset on the device.

Test your issue and let me know the outcome.
