I replaced my digitizer 1 month ago i got a 20$ screen on amazon and now my iPad has "dead spots" like i can't type in the keyboard the letters t n and w and my iPad goes crazy and punches random things in keyboard it goes into apps by itself. Please help any would be greatly appreciated.

Chances are you never covered the gold contacts on the screen and it's shorting against the metal frame it's always that..

As for the dead spots it's either damaged or the cable was damaged when laying the screen flat..

Best screens for the iPad mini is a genuine Apple screen because you will never have the problem with the ghost clicking

Cheaper is not always better

What do you mean "the gold contacts on the screen"? Is it along the whole digitizer or down by the home button? Do you have any images I can see for reference? My screen is also jumping around and some spots on the digitizer are not responding. Also I slide to unlock and it works fine, then there is suddenly no response.

I removed the digitizer and even if I fold it back, the screen keeps jumping all around like random touch. So it should not be the digitizer is not taped. How do I check it the flex is creased?

I would be thinking creased digitizer flex. Make sure the flex bends in toward the LCD as in the original. If you allow the flex to stick to the adhesive, it will form a crease on the frame when you press the screen into place.
