Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus (YT-X703F) random reboots

Hey all

I've had the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus (YT-X703F) for over 2 years and conveniently now that the warranty has expired I'm noting random restart behaviour. 

 

The problem:

  • The tablet randomly restarts.  It could be in the middle of Netflix, or even randomly when it's sitting unused idly.  I can tell because the annoying Lenovo jingle plays upon restarting.  There isn't a particular set of actions that cause this.

The things I've tried:

  • Running in safe mode.
  • Investigating the logs via ADB.  Nothing useful seems to get reported.
  • Wiping and re-installing the tablet with both the last Lenovo-released update as well as the latest update which came out a few weeks ago.
  • Installing one app at a time and testing.  It eventually randomly reboots with even a minimum set up.
  • Installing with a different user.
  • Ensuring it's in an environment when it cannot overheat.

The things I've researched:

  • This problem has exhibited itself a month after the Lenovo charger that came with it died an unceremonious death under the hands of 'normal use'.  Since then I've fully charged with One Plus-supplied chargers as well as connecting directly with a PC.
  • I've found generally Android devices can have this problem.  The typical solution is one of the above that I've already tried.
  • I've noticed this appearing in the forums with other Yoga Tab 4 users.  The most conclusive solution I've found is a motherboard replacement which occurred under warranty.

Has anyone had this issue with the Yoga Tab 3 Plus?  I'm debating whether to buy and install a battery replacement to test this out (they don't come cheap!) or to just sell this on for parts.  I would prefer not to attempt to install another flavour of Android i.e. Lineage since I just don't have that kind of time to do it and I'm suspecting this is a hardware issue.

Re: Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus (YT-X703F) random reboots

Hi,

I bought a yoga tab 3 , which had screen flickering from the begining brand new.

I returned it to Lenova and they returned it in the same condition un repaired. So i sent it back , they changed the display and motherboard ,they said and now i have the same problem as you with the update caught up in a continuous loop and restarting the tablet all of the time.

I contacted lenova again and they wanted to charge me for a repair that they caused becaused its out of warranty.

I have had nothing but trouble with this tablet since new. It was never dropped or mistreated and it was obviously a bad design, or a incompetent person who assembeled it to begin with.

I am going to report Lenova to the consumer Ombudsman because i am very unhappy about the whole situation and might start a community petition to the same, for similar unhappy miss treated consumers.

Regards

Shay

What level is your battery at when it randomly reboots ?

A faulty battery can cause this issue when this happened to my phone it would start at around 60% battery then if I launched anything like camera or heavyweight applications the random restarts would happen.
