    I am having some problems with my iPad 2 touch screen there is a part in the screen that stops working or starts acting alone it opens apps that are located in that frame of the screen, sometimes it changes from app to app. This doesn't happen always, somedays it works perfect and some days it doesn't. The frame that doesn't work is about one inch wide. I ask around to see what was the problem and they told me that I had to change the digitalizer since my warranty was expired and it cost a lot to buy a new one. I changed the digitalizer and at first it worked fine but then the same problem started the wierd part was that the part of the new screen that didn't work was exactly the same as the old screen. I was wondering if anyone has an idea of what might be happening if the problems is the digitalizer connector.

    Thanks

    Did the Ipad ever get wet? Could be a short but you should def pop it back open and check the connector.

    Try re-seating the connector first.
