It has a mind of its own lol!
Is this what your iPad is doing?If so,take it to the apple store as soon as possible.
Sadly it sounds like the touchscreen is short circuiting.
Have you noticed different behavior if held in different positions? Portrait vs landscape, vertical vs on a flat surface etc?
nooooo diiiiifferrrrrreeeeenccccceeee eiiiiittttherrrrr wwwwwayyyy
Oh my goodness, Daisy...please let us know what comes of your visit with a Genius at the Apple Store. This doesn't look good.
Hoping for the best for you.
Unfortunately because it is a first generation iPad the genius bar while likely able to confirm the problem as hardware will not be able to do much to help you. Warranty is expired and unfortunately your iPad can likely be repaired but cost justifying such repairs isn't feasible.
Maybe if you get the right Apple employee they may offer you a discount on an iPad2 or third generation iPad.
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.
Thank you very much for posting this success story!
Guess I'm digging up an "OLD" topic but my iPad started doing the same thing. It types, deletes.....just about anything it wants to with no human input!
I've tried RESET as new and DVDKEV's recommendations. Nothing. Since this is not a newer iPad, no warranty possibilities. Getting another is not a huge investment but I am still kinda creeped out on what this one is doing. Why can't an iPad have a virus? Everyone says there's no way or never has one been proven. But this thing is acting like a child has possessed it!
Any newer ideas on what can be done?
