Replaced digitizer Not working when set in place

I had two Ipad minis with broken screens. Bought replacement parts and changed the first with good result. The second one caused me problems: the replacement seemed ok, before gluing I turned it on and everything was all Right. I removed the tape-parts covering the glue and it all fitted well together. But after power on the screen went crazy as if I touched the screen again and again. I thought it would be a faulty digitizer so I replaced it with the third one. Exactly same result. I can have the digitizer/screen laying on the ipad about half an inch above and it will work perfectly - but the moment I place it directly on the Ipad the screen starts to touch randomly on the screen. Would this be two faulty digitizers or what do you think?

Hello I believe you need to cover the strip were the home button is with tape check you original screen and see we're the tape is.. The tape not being there cause screen to click by itself

I am having the SAME problem! Except, even after I transfered all the tape from the old screen to the new one. In all the same places. It's still giving me fits once placed. Everything works perfectly until I seat the screen down. Then the home button just clicks itself over and over and over again until I pull up the screen. And when I seat the screen, the sleep button at the top doesn't work either. I assume it can't respond because the home button just keeps hitting itself. What can I do?

you need a new digitizer---this one has a defect in the soldering at the home button flex.
