blackberry playbook glitches

Here in this video, I recorded what's wrong with the playbook:



Basically, over a year the playbook been glitching up, doing random things, such as opening/closing windows and typing random things.  My 1 year warranty with the manufacture is over at the start of the incidence which is why I didn't bother trying to fix it.  I tried to reformat about 10 times now, but no luck.  


This is the first time with this issues.  I sent the playbook back twice now.  The first time was because of some battery issues/charger issue where it ran out of battery and won't charge up.  The second time it was because they fix the charging problem/battery but the playbook they sent back wasn't put together properly where the volume buttons were out of place.


If anyone have a solution to this, it would be great.  Thanks

Re: blackberry playbook glitches

I've seen something similar with my playbooks, but it only happened when plugged in. Once it wasn't connected to power, it worked fine. I tried a charger from one of my other playbooks and had no problems.

I figured it was a faulty charger and tossed it, since then, no problems.

Re: blackberry playbook glitches

it can be from a faulty charger with a dirty output AC on the DC out or pulses


my wifes used a LG charger that looked similar to the playbook charger and the odd random stuff happen on the screen too
