[Q] Rebooting.

OP wilzard

9th October 2014, 08:10 AM   |  #1  
Tablet has had quite a few random reboots in the last few days.

It's happened when I closed all tabs in chrome. It has happened after uninstalling an app. It's happened after selecting to greenify google play services - and wiped all the greenify settings. It's happened at, as far as I can tell, random times and circumstances.

It is probably kernel related but this is a new tablet for me and I'm not too familiar with any custom roms or kernels on this device. Currently running xKat v4 with the included kernel.

Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone have a fix recommendation or suggestions?

Thanks.

I got random reboots in the first couple of weeks when I first got the tablet ... Mainly when I unplugged off charge. I think I drained battery to 5% switched it off and charged it to 100% and never had any issues after that.

P.s this happened like a year ago so can't really remember much tbh - but I do know I didnt have to factory reset or anything drastic, it just fixed itself also bare in mind back then I was on stock JellyBean. Soz I can't help more.

Tablet
I'm also experiencing frequent and random reboots with my SM-P600 since the update to 4.4.2 (never had any reboots before):
First the screen starts flickering (this happens quite often using Google Chrome or playing youtube videos, but it occurs with other apps as well), then after a while the tablet suddenly gets unresponsive and reboots (sometime it reboots several times in a row).

I've already tried multiple factory resets and cache/davlik wipes, re-installed the 4.4.2 firmware using kies, but nothing helped so far.
Anyone any suggestions what else I can try?

Did you check the temperture?? download a cpu temp check and see if it's overheating. Also, is your tablet rooted??
