    "iPad Gone Wild"

    Has anyone had a problem with their iPad going crazy in the middle of what you are doing? At times my iPad just takes off on its own and flashes from one site to another for 5 minutes at least. I went back to store and was shown how to properly close out of sites so as to not cause iPad to be on overload, however it is still going crazy at whim...... Help??????

    The easiest first way to try to solve ‘unexplained’ or ‘unusual’ problems with the iPad are:-

    Force the offending app to close. If you have iOS 4.2 or 4.3 double-press the ‘Home’ button to bring up the multi-task bar at the bottom of the screen. Press *and hold* any icon until they start to ‘jiggle’. Then tap the top left-hand corner of the app that you want to close. It will ‘disappear’ from the list. Don’t panic - you’ve not deleted it, just closed it. Now tap the Home screen and the multi-task bar will disappear. Re-open the iPad’s app and see if the problem has resolved itself. If not, it’s on to possible solution number two!!
    Restart the iPad. Press *and hold* the Power button. After a couple of seconds a slider control will appear asking you to confirm that you really want to switch the iPad off (this is all you’ll be doing). Slide the control to accept. A rotating white ‘bezel’ will appear in the iPad screen as the iPad powers down (it takes a few seconds, just like it would if you were shutting down your PC). When the screen of the iPad has gone completely blank, press *and hold* the Power button for a couple of seconds until the white Apple logo appears and the iPad starts to power up. This takes several seconds, so be patient. During the power up the automatic screen orientation function is disabled, so don’t panic. A few seconds before the power up is complete, the iPad plays a little ‘jingle’ and then you’re back to the Home screen. Restart the iPad’s app and see if the problem persists. Apple (and Forum members) recommend that you power down your iPad at least once a week, just as you might regularly completely switch off your PC. The normal procedure of just briefly pressing the Power button of the iPad merely puts it to ‘sleep’. Most Forum members have found that one of the two methods I’ve mentioned here cure a whole bunch of unexplained problems and are an easy first step to resolving most anything that happens on the iPad.

    You should bring it better to the service center, and let the specialist have a look what's going on.

    Hi

    I occasionally let my finger encroach onto the list of forum controls, especially when trying for the " load more stuff" button.

    Took me a while to figure out why the sudden flipping was happening, it may have been mind controlled, maybe, though I reckon Apple hasn't achieved that yet.

    Simple solution for me , just hit the current button, and I'm back where I used to be. Now that's teleporting for you.

    These screens are extremely touch sensitive, much to our benefit.

    I had this problem with my ipad. Typing on its own, changing page size, moving about in applications etc, I spent days working on a fix and have finally solved it.

    I hope this benefits others;

    1) Download latest itunes to a computer.
    2) Connect ipad to the computer using white usb cable.
    3) Transfer all purchases etc.
    4) Disconnect from itunes.
    5) go to settings on the ipad and choose the General option, scroll to bottom and select Reset.
    6) choose erase all content and settings.
    7) reconnect the ipad to the computer. wait for itunes to find the ipad.
    8) on the ipad select set up as new ipad etc until it shows the icons.
    9) on itunes select restore ipad.
    10) leave itunes to download the latest software. it might take 30mins. dont touch it.
    11) when the download is complete it will restore the ipad with latest software.
    12) go to settings and switch off Bluetooth. turn off Multitasking gestures. select keyboard and turn off split keyboard. turn off the following too; auto correction, auto capitilisation,check spelling and shortcut.

    that's it, ipad should now be problem free.

    post here if this helps you.

    I also experienced that on my Ipad, but when I bring my Ipad to the center they replaced it with a new one, they could not seem to find the problem.

    Hope they replace your Ipad also.
