Chassis was slightly bent and giving random feedback when not touched.
My kid dropped her iPad mini at some point which was in an otter box and she has been complaining that it has been acting erratically for a couple of weeks now.
She can be watching YouTube and it will randomly switch to a different video, or it will switch to a different app, or the keyboard will pop up out of nowhere.
All without her even touching the iPad!
She can have it propped up on a pillow on her bed and it'll do this.
So I took a look at it and put a little pressure on the back of the case an got the keyboard to pop up a couple times.
Finally I took it out of the otterbox to get a better look at it, and when I did, I realized, the long edge without the volume buttons was slightly bent!
I figured the pressure from the bend was screwing up the digitizer so I gently straightened it back out hoping that would solve the problem but it is still acting erratically.
I'm willing to swap out the digitizer, but I really don't want to waste the money if there is a good possibility there is something else wrong with it too.
It is working perfectly except for the erratic touch behaviour, when there has been no touch!
What do ya think?
