Very good, my desktop PC died and the digitiser on my iPad seems to be broke. A good week.

@fincham oh no!

How is the digitiser broken? Entirely non functional? Or just weird input?

@ewenmcneill just registering touch input while it’s sitting on a table :/ at least I have the fancy warranty until March but it’s a hassle

@fincham I’d definitely try cleaning the screen thoroughly first. I’ve had weird inputs in the past from something partially conductive on the surface 🤔

(But good to hear there’s a “make it someone else’s problem to fix” backup option!)

@ewenmcneill mm I thought it could be that too though it doesn’t seem like there’s anything on there. I’ve owned several iPads in the past and haven’t seen anything like it previously.

@fincham

It does sound like something’s broken inside then :-(

Hopefully getting it fixed is easier now NZ is back in Level 1 (as best I could tell much of the detailed repair was done in Auckland).
