I have a problem with my tablet. I’m pretty good at fixing things from cars to plumbing to PCs, and often turn to the internet to help. However, this problem has stumped me, and I can’t seem to find any similar issues mentioned, nevermind a solution!
So please help me with this - whether it’s a solution to the problem, some tips for better Google searches, or just similar stories about stuff that is surprisingly hard to find online…
Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016)
In SOME apps, in particular YouTube Kids, it seems like there are phantom touches on the Back key every few seconds. A video will play for 2-3 seconds, and then pause, as if the Back key has been tapped. Tapping play works again for 2-3 seconds and then pauses again. This also happens in a few other apps and games, with pauses every few seconds.
MOST apps do not have the issue, including YouTube itself.
I have tried a soft reset, and reinstalling the glitching apps
Software up to date - Android 7.0
2 months old - the problem seems to have started in the last 1 month
In developer mode with touch traces switched on, I do not “see” any phantom touches.
