I purchased my iPad2 brand new from Big W in December 2011. I have a smart cover and a silicon protective back cover. I also have a rubber tipped stylus. I have also purchased an Apple SD card reader attachment. Right you have all the background info. In January while trying to download photos with the card reader attachment it came up with downloading but wouldn't open the photos on the card. I disconnected the card reader and turned off the iPad. It then wouldn't shut down - the shutting down icon just kept going around. I then held in the home button and the off button on top for 10 seconds (or thereabouts!) and the machine shut down. About 1 month ago while using the iPad it suddenly started changing screens of its own accord, going in to apps of its own accord, went to the search screen and started typing random letters of its own accord. I took the silicon back cover off thinking this might be causing a problem and also took off the smart cover. I then shut down the machine, left it for a while and then turned it back on. Everything seemed to be back to normal. On Sunday it started playing up again and after a few times of turning it off the problem stopped. Then today it started the mysterious problem again and is still doing it. Has anyone else had this issue? I haven't dropped the machine or treated it in any wrong manner!! HELP!!!
