Default Random Shutdowns - E980

Hello, I have recently re-flashed to stock on my E980, I am running the phone on the AIO network as an unlocked device (although it would run fine if it were ATT locked as well).

I am looking for ideas to why I am having a problem. So it goes like this...

The phone randomly turns off. It seems to happen in my pocket, not on the desk. When I go to turn it back on, it is unresponsive unless I pull the battery or plug it into AC. If I plug it in before pulling the battery, it says not enough power to turn on. If I pull the Battery and turn it on the homescreen loads and I have plenty of battery in the upper corner (75% or so). When the homescreen loads, its fine for awhile, then back to step 1.


I am currently unrooted (just flashed back using LG flash tools) however the problem was first noted on a rooted stock ROM. I installed CM11 thinking that maybe it was something in the ROM that was initally causing this and a new ROM was in store for me... Did it on CM 11 too. Then I reflashed to Stock and I am still having this issue.


I have tried most everything and my thought is that the battery is either toast or not being recognized properly. I do not have immediate access to a different battery, but I think i can get my hands on one... If I replace it, I'm thinking it would take me an hour or so to replicate the problem and I still wouldn't be certain that was the culprit.

Anyone have any ideas, or things I could try out before trying to source a test battery, or does this not sound like a battery issue?

I've been having a similar problem as you, and actually had the device factory reset while in my pocket. Going to try and find a battery around my area, and hoping it fixes the problem. Have you noticed any heating issues as well before the reboot?
