    Has anyone experienced this?
    I had the screen replaced on my iPad and now several of the letter keys on the keyboard are repeating at a fast rate.
    Example...if I'm trying to type "fast" it will some out as "faaaaast". I'm not holding the key down at all, just tapping it like I would normally type.

    Also...I've narrowed it down to just the middle row of letters. The top and bottom rows of letters work fine.

    Apple won't touch it because of the screen replacement.
    Has anyone else dealt with this?
    Is it time for an external keyboard and just deal with it or...suggestions?

    Who replaced the screen? Have you taken it back for them to look at?

    Was it repeating like this before the digitizer replacement? I had an iPad 1 with the same issue. Replaced the digitizer thinking that would fix it... but the problem remained. I finally presumed it was a faulty digitizer chip and sold it cheap.
