As the first step, please hold the home and power buttons for about 10 seconds until you see the apple logo, then release.
Then let the iPad restart and tell me if you still have the issue.
Let me know the results please

I did that and the apple appeared on a full green screen background. Also when I opened the iPad the green problem was exactly the same.

It is the internal LCD screen that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out now
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the iPad to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
