New Digitizer Not Functioning Properly After Repair

I have replaced my front digitizer per all instructions and even some advanced research and everything looks to be perfect, triple checked connections and adhesives. If I close the screen almost to the point of being fully secure the bezel everything works fine, full functionality. As soon as I apply pressure to panel to be fully secured with ipad bezel, it will continually function as if something is applying pressure to the front side of the screen as if someone is continually typing but they are not and it will just continue making the ipad unusable. I have triple checked any touch points on the back, but the copper portion of the backside of the screen will inevitably touch the rubber padding. Not sure what else to do.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Broken doesn't stand a chance.

As a last effort, before attempting a new digitizer, try applying Kapton Tape along the edges of the inside of the digitizer, over the copper.

I've heard of this helping with these 'ghost touches' you're experiencing. Good luck!
