    Exclamation A100 digitizer only works when heat is applied

    When I use my A100, it acts like I am pressing on the screen in another location, and therefore messes with my swiping. However, if the screen is heated (I have repaired cell phones and have a low-temp HEAT gun for screen replacement), the digitizer works normally.

    Is my digitizer shot, or is there damage I can't see? For the record, I have not opened or worked on the tablet. It just stopped working one day. Do I need a replacement digitizer? A wipe to factory did nothing to solve the issue.

    Thanks so much!

    Yes, the digitizers on the a100 can be very flakey. It will most likely need to be replaced, but the cost is high and may not be worth it.

    Does using it while plugged in have any differences?
