satnav screen fault, keeps opening and closing when car is off

Hi folks,

recently the satnav screen has a mind of its own, when car is turned on it's fine, as soon as its turned off, the screen keeps flipping, opening and closing, rang the dealer who said there will be a charge to check it, and if the warranty covers the fault it will be done foc, has anyone came across this or knows if the warranty will cover it. A quick search on google showed me one result of a similar fault and dealer wanted £1000 ! Surely this should be covered as its seems to be a glitch of some sort in the software, all started happening a few days after the car was serviced not sure what to make of it all

the car is a 24 kw leaf 2014 gen 2

31st July, still have the remainder of warranty just made it, plus there is an extra years cover,

Tried all of the above to no avail, the dealer suggested removing the 20 amp fuse for the sat-nav that obviously sorted the issue but no radio or sat-nav, later on today i put the fuse back and touch wood it seems to be back to normal, will give a few days and see the fault re occurs

thanks for everyone's input its appreciated
Was it solved? I have same issue with my 2011 leaf. Removed all the fuses and put them back in with no luck.
If anyone has this issue in future, this is how I fixed it.

Sprayed aerosol based contact cleaner all around the tilt button and blew air into the groove around the tilt button using my bike pump with ball inflating pin.
That did not solve the issue straight away.
continuous open and close of the screen drained out my 12v battery in 1-2 days. I have let the car sit in sunlight for 3 days.

When I charged 12v battery back again in a couple of days, I noticed the screen stopped to open and close continuously. Tilt screen button is still working if I need it.

Lesson learnt... never spray cleaning liquid directly on anywhere near the buttons, use wet wipe or spray on a cloth.
