My iPad screen has a mind of its own - is there a fix
What exactly is happening? Do apps open and close by themselves? Does the keyboard come up by itself and start typing?
I will be on my iPad - reading or maps or just doing email and then all of sudden - the book may change pages or even just close. The maps will go to another screen. The email will change to another email. I was playing a game and the screen just took over and started moving the letters just where ever it wanted. I have look on the internet and they are calling it ghost movement. But I can't find a way to fix it. I was a Best Buy yesterday and one of the people at the Geek Squad said for me to back up my iPad and then do a factory restore from my computer on iTunes. what do you think?
I forgot the answer to your question is yes - they do open and close by themselves
The most likely cause of your problems is a faulty touchscreen, resulting in random effects like you are experiencing. You should make a Genius Bar appointment at an Apple Store to have a full diagnostic done. Do a full backup before taking in your iPad.
The backup can be used to set up a replacement iPad if your problem is indeed a hardware problem.
