    On vacation right now and my Playbook has started doing something weird. Intermittently, it will not register my input touches properly. Instead, it will register them somewhere else on the screen, usually directly up or down. If I hit an icon on the bottom row, it opens the icon 2 rows up.

    Any solutions to this, or is it a hardware problem? I've rebooted it a few times already and it hasn't fixed it.

    I have about 2 months of warranty left on it should worst come to worst, I can call RIM when I get home next week.

    Thanks

    Did you install any new apps or sideload any Android apps recently?

    I don't know what reboot method you used so you can try:

    To fix an issue, try these in order:

    Restart using the Battery Icon and press Restart

    Press and hold the Power button for 10-15 seconds. Then leave it for 20-30 seconds and see if it restarts.

    To REBOOT:
    Press and HOLD all three keys for about 10 - 20 seconds: PowerOn, VolUp and VolDown. Start with the PowerButton. Keep holding past the 3-choice options screen. If you hear a shutter type sound, you've taken a Screen Shot and probably missed the PowerButton.
