Exclamation Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 GT P5210 turning off problem

Hi, I have problem with my Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 gt p 5210.
Tablet without noticeable reason began randomly shut down by itself.
Sometimes in an hour goes off 5-6 times, and sometimes working 5-6 hours without turning off.
Tablet can not be sent to the service because it was purchased abroad.
On it is the original untouched Android 4.2.2.
I tried a factory reset and re-flash with the latest android from sammobile.com , but it didn't help.
Does anyone has a similar problem or solution.

Thanks in advance

Default battery terminal

I seen a post somewhere, and for the life of me I can't find it again. But anyway, the dude dis-assembled his 5210, and secured the battery terminal (apparently Samsung omitted this step on several tab 2 10.1's.... and now the tab 3 10.1's are having the same issue.) I did downloaded the pics in case I ever needed to do this myself. Here's a link to my Dropbox

duh.. I found the original post...http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2593766

It is a Samsung product. Should not make a difference what country you purchased it in. If you have the original receipt you should still get warranty repair. But if you feel that the solution is in the discussion above, then by all means check that first. Just be careful not to damage your tab. Good luck and please do follow up on what you found.
No need to hit "THANKS". My ego can survive without it.
