    It's possible that you have a defective digitizer.

    Scifan above may well be right. From your very clear illustration of the problem, it's not looking promising without a hardware fix. But just as a last gasp have you reset/rebooted your iPad? Keep holding down the Sleep/On and Home buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears and keep holding until the iPad has rebooted. It's just a possibility that a tidied-up RAM may help. I would agree you don't need two items breaking down at the same time. Regards, Andrew

    I had this problem too but a little different..

    It will start only when i charged my ipad 3 while using it..

    Sometimes it will enter multi task mode & exit an app..

    Tested it with a different cable & its working fine..

    But just wondering if it has anything to do with the cables actually?
