Screen keeps shaking

This has been a recent issue. Not only on the browser, but on my message, my calender and even on my apps the screen keeps shaking when I put my finger to 'click' on something. This issue makes it impossible to open up new pages or even do simple tasks on my Playbook.


Does anyone else have this problem? Can Blackberry replace it, or is there a way to fix this problem?

Re: Screen keeps shaking

I noticed it for the first time yesterday, then I noticed I had my other hand on the metal case of my Macbook on charge (which is notorious for not being properly earthed and "tingling".  Some [eople even reported this tingling with Playbooks when on charge.  Are you near any electrical interference or is your Playbook plugged into a charger or a USB powered by mains power?  Even temporaily try grounding the metal rim of the bezel against some metal water water pipes, or try it when not on charge.
