    New member with unstable iPad

    I am news to the forum although I've had my iPad 1 for just over a year - and love it. I have a problem. Periodically, the iPad runs amok - zooms in and out, flips pages in iBooks, closes one iBook and opens another, changes apps, connects to the internet, quite uncontrollably without any input from me. in short it becomes unusable.

    I've tried turning it off, resetting it, restoring using iTunes, all to no effect. It's intermittent - most of the time it behaves normally, but then spas icy sky goes berserk.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a solution?

    Sounds unbelievable. Like it is possessed.

    So you have tried a hard reset? Holding down the power button and the home button until you see the Apple logo?

    Let it reboot.

    Certainly bizarre behaviour!! I've never heard of this type of thing before. If Marie's suggestion doesn't work, it might be time to visit the Apple Store.

    Yes - I've done the hard reset, doesn't resolve the problem. But thanks for the suggestion.

    I'm with Tim, take it to the Apple Store, if they see it doing that then I'm sure you will be walking out with a replacement.

    Hey kenfaulkes! What did you do? I have exact problem with my ipad2. Did a search and this thread came up. Mine does exact same thing. I just power it down completely and when I turn it back up, it acts right for just a short while then it goes berserk! I had it jailbroken in the past then this started. I removed the jailbreak by upgrading but it did not stop. I have also had the screen replaced in the past so don't know what we have in common with our pads just incase any of these things cause it to act the way it does.

    You likely have a defective digitizer. Did Apple replace the screen? You should take it to an Apple store to have it checked out.

    BTW,this thread is almost a year old and it's highly unlikely that the OP is still monitoring it.

    Just to let you know that I bought a used one on eBay from a reputable dealer and mine does the same thing as you described. From what the eBay add says, the sceens are replaced. Does that mean he did it wrong? He does have a 30 return police so I guess that I may ask for my money back and bite the bullet and buy new.
