Strange how it's rebooting, have you not got sticky buttons?

Take the back cover off and give it a bit clean out ?

I have a feeling it's maybe the battery itself on this one. I bet they are a pain to open up to check the battery for swelling.

Loving the backing Audio lol
I'd seen a similar video before but didn't want to suggest opening for my battery theory straight away. It does need some spudging apart. Maybe it is a slightly detached cable as in the video I saw? I think the video I saw was display related as the LCD cable runs over the batteries. Something like that and swollen batteries can pull the cable out of the connector.

I just bought a 21-piece spudger set from Amazon for £3.85 :). Lots of strange plastic tools (including the one seen) and the two pairs of tweezers aren't at all bad for mechanical work. Looks like three guitar plectrums in there as well as three proper types but lots of things for the price :). No case as some of the more expensive ones have or the flat metal spudgers.

The background track sounds like an arrangement of Bolero by Ravel, it took me a while but it was bugging me:

Done a factory reset...does the same..think the battery might be temperamental...will wait till battery goes completely before attempting battery replacement...seems to charge the tablet even though it turns on and off..

I'd do it now before it causes more damage. The battery might swell up and pop the case apart, like my old phone :).

It might just be one of those flex cables needing reseated either.
