    I'm just about on the point of throwing out my Playbook, sadly. It was working ok until a couple of months ago, but now once booted up, the screen moves around as if there's somebody touching it - apps open, the keyboard appears, etc. There is no controlling it, either by actually touching it or via bridge.

    I've tried:

    letting it carry on for a couple of hours to see if it settles
    rebooting
    factory reset
    removing the screen protector

    Does anyone else have any suggestions before I finally, regretfully give up? It seems such a shame as it was a great little unit for a while, plus I'm one of the suckers that paid full price!

    Thanks for the suggestion, although the presence of a screen protector has prevented any skin to screen contact since I bought it.

    I tried a screen wipe on it anyway, with no success.
