Hello shnozi and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Sorry to hear you're experiencing issues with your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.


Reboot your tablet by tapping the Battery icon and selecting Restart. After the restart completes, does the screen look normal?


What software version does your tablet have installed? You can find this under Options>About.
