Default [Q] Sudden Random Resetting

Hi all,

On Saturday, my phone just started resetting at random for some or other reason. Sometimes while using it, at other times I find it like that in my pocket.

I did read on the net for solutions, but nothing really fits so far.

Nothing was changed recently, no drops etc.

Since the problem started, I tried the following:

Cache wipe
Firmware upgrade to 4.3 (was running 4.2?I think? seamlessly)
Changed battery around
Removed SD Card
Re-inserted SIM 'correctly'.

It does it on battery and cable power.

Failed power button seems likely, but wouldn't the power button screen come on? I tried on my friend's phone by holding it in, and although it resets, it first shows the options.

ANY advice?

Will 'n factory reset help? Even after a firmware upgrade?

Regards,

Erich

First try a factory reset and format the internal sd card then flash a full stock rom. Test before you install or restore any apps or mods.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Thanks for the info.
I actually took my phone apart and tried to wiggle the switch after I measured and cleaned it. Don't know if it is something I did, or battery removed for 30min, but I haven't had that problem since.

If it acts up, I will do as you suggested.

Regards,

Erich
