Turned out sammy forgot to secure the clasps on the battery cable :what: . Basically any time the tab(GT-5210) was placed down with a small drop or taped in the back for any reasons it will random turn off... easy fix just opened and secure the clasps on the cable.
The fix works. The tab doesn't have a sensitive nature anymore.
I figure I share some inside pictures as I haven't really found many online.

i had to open my samsung gt-p5210 to fix the intermittent powering off problem. so i watched youtube to see how to open the device.. well what i did was use abt 6 plastic credit cards. first insert the edge of the plastic credit card into the right side of the device with the samsung logo facing up. i pushed the credit card in firmly and made sure all the side of the credit card was between the chrome and the glass. repeat the procedure at lower side and left side of the device..when all 3 sides are free and you can insert your finger in, gently insert the last credit card to release the power button edge and the opposite edge. the glass should now be able to be free from the plastic back cover..make sure the battery clip is secure. hopefully this should stop the problem.. am testing mine now and if i notice any re-occurrence of the intermittent powering off, then i would try other solutions..until then please enjoy this wonderful device...and my only wish is to have a CYANOGENMOD custom rom CM11 as i think the bloatware just slows it down too much...so am waiting for cm11...hope xdadevelopers will help us out here.. i think the problem is cos the gt-p5210 uses the intel processor...
