My ipad 4 dropped and now apps open and close on their own

My ipad 4 dropped off my lap.  The glass is intact but now all the apps open and close randomly on their own.  I tried to reboot it and it didnt workd.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

THANKS for your prompt reply  Bluetooth is off in my laptop and IPhone.. and in fact the reset is the only thing that can make it back to normal. But for a lil while. I wonder if it is the touch, or the home botton... both things are very expensive to replace, so I wouldn't like to spend $$ and continue having the prob.....

  • TS1702 On my iPad 2 the mail app opens and the page icons are there but no mail. I can access my mail in other ways so I know mail is being received.

    On my iPad2 the mail app opens and the page icons are there but no messages are shown. I know mail is being sent as I can access it in other ways plus the envelope icon on my homepage continues to show the number of messages received.
    I have rebooted twice now but cannot think of anything else to do
    Help please

    Go to Settings>Mail the account and turn the account off and then back on
    Next delete the account from the iPad and reenter the settings.

  • Screen flickers and the apps open and close

    When using my ipad the screen will start to flicker and when its on the home page it will open or close apps by itself.

    Close all of the apps in the recents tray. There might be something funky going on with an app. Then reset your iPad.
    Tap the home button once. Then tap the home button twice and the recents tray will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner of the app that you want to close. Close all of them. Tap the home button twice.
    Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.

  • Ipad 3 apps opening / closing / typing on their own

    Hi,
    We purchased an iPad 3 today.
    It went through the set up process fine. We switched it off  for about 20 minutes after calling Telstra to activate the sim card. When we switched it back on, apps began opening / closing / typing furiously all by themselves. Just sitting on the table completely untouched it would fire through apps.
    We have turned it off/on. We have reset it. We have just left it alone. But as soon as the screen is unlocked the same thing keeps happening. It has slowed down and is not happening at the rapid speed it was, but apps continue to open and type gibberish on their own accord. Also, we have noticed that some of the 'keys' on the keypad don't respond, though we haven't done a lot of typing because as soon as you start you get overridden by whatever crazy thing the other apps are doing.
    Extremely disappointing and frusterating.
    Is this a glitch in the new iPad? Do we need to return it?
    Many thanks for your advice.

    You said that you reset it ..... But like this?
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons
    If you tried that and it is still acting up, have you restore the iOS software yet?
    If you have done the reboot and restored the software, I would return it. That is certainly not normal behavior. Personally, I would be inclined to return it no matter what. I would hate to think that this could occur again on a brand new device.

  • My settings and messages app open and then close in a matter of seconds, I've tried restoring from the back up of and downloading a free app. Nothing's worked. I'd really like to avoid setting up as new. I'm on 6.1    PLEASE HELP

    i'm also having major CPU problems w/ FF 29.0.1. when i restart the app it calms down again but after loading tabs it steadily climbs up to 100% after not too long. i have checked out the 2 CPU links/articles above and do all the basic troubleshooting and tips, but with all the FF tools & add-ons isn't there some sort of CPU monitor that has the ability to display which extensions/scripts are hogging the CPU? Activity Monitor on Mac just shows the total used by the app. it's impossible in my case to efficiently disable dozens of add-ons & scripts, restart, and test each one by one b/c it can take several hrs before the CPU starts to spike high again. i have no time for this.
    thanks

  • Hi there some of my apps open and then close imedietly

    My safari and mail apps open and close not even a split second after I opens them please help

    Try a hard reset to see if that clears things up.  To do this, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.
    Otherwise, it may be necessary to restore the iPod from a previous backup or even factory defaults.

    If it is the third party apps crashing - try downloading another app - any free app is fine. See if that resets the other apps.

  • IPad 16GB iOS 8.1.1 upgrade and now cannot open Music and Videos apps

    My iPad 16GB installediOS 8.1.1 upgrade and now cannot open Music and Videos apps...HELP?

    Since yesterday morning about 11:00 I have been having TERRIBLE email problems on this iPad 3G. Email comes in (I hear the sound) but nothing displays -- no folders, no content, no nothing in e-mail. The blank email screen shows up and then disappears after about 10 seconds, taking me back to the Home Screen.
    Right now, the only way I can see email on this device is to log onto AOL via the AOL app.
    I have been doing a lot of online reading about the problem. It has to do with iOS 8.1.3 and it affects older iPads and iPhones. I'm having no problems on my iPod touch, which -- fortunately -- is so old it cannot update its iOS 6.
    I waited to update the iOS on this iPad until iOS 8 was "mature." That was about 2 weeks ago.
    Anybody know know if Apple is aware? working on a solution?

  • I upgraded my itunes and now my kindle and other apps won't work.  I shut the ipad off and I resynched it with my computer.  Nothing worked.  What should I do?Help!

    I updated my itunes on my ipad and now my kindle and other apps won't open.  I restarted the ipad and tried to resynch.  Nothing worked.  Any other suggestions?

    Do you mean that you updated your computer's iTunes or the iPad's iOS ?
    If it's happening on all the apps that you've downloaded from the App Store, but not the Apple built-in ones, then try downloading any free app from the store (as that appears to reset something) and then re-try them - the free app can then be deleted.
    If it's happening on all apps then try closing them all completely and then see if they work when you re-open them : from the home screen (i.e.not with any app 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of each app to close them, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    If that doesn't work then you could try a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

    Using the battery level meter in this manner is comparable to using your car's fuel gauge to calculate miles per gallon. The only thing that matters is the total amount of operating time from full charge to auto-shutdown.
    Use the wall-mount charger that came with the iPad and charge overnight.  Do NOT use an iPod/iPhone charger.  Do NOT use a computer's USB port.  Then, operate it normally until auto shut-down (ignore any low level alerts that may appear).  An irony is that doing that test to determine the total operating time is also the procedure necessary to calibrate the battery level meter.
    I'm not claiming that you do not have a problem.  I am stating, however, that we don't yet know.  If the above test does, in fact, indicate a problem, read this.
    Also, according to Apple:
    Use Your iPad Regularly
    For proper reporting of the battery’s state of charge, be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down).
    Elsewhere, Apple elaborates and explains that two half-discharges (or four quarter-discharges, etc.) equals one full discharge.

  • Since last update of Pages, my Pages app in iPad anda iPhone doesn't open, it closes suddenly. I already deleted it and reinstalled, but still not works.

    Since last update of Pages, my Pages app in iPad anda iPhone doesn't open, it closes suddenly. I already deleted it and reinstalled, but still not works.
    Can someone help? Do I need to wait for another update?
    Thanks

    This is my problem that has to originate from the update.  So glad that I did not purchase a MacBook!  Apple products/apps are appearing to be not different from Windows products.
    I have deleted and reinstalled from the device and desktop, resets, etc.  When I uninstalled and reinstalled while connected to my desktop, the older version of pages was installed.  I was able to see all of my files that were saved to the cloud.  I was forced to update again to access any of the saved files.  Once updated again, I could no longer open pages.  It began, to open and abruptly shut down.
