galaxy tab pro 8.4 rebooting problem - battery?

My Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 keeps rebooting. This happens frequently like at 97% battery capacity, then it reboots and it drops to 93% capacity, goes through the Samsung title screens, then gets to the "swipe screen", then it reboots itself again, and does this repeatedly until the battery life shows around 57%. What is wrong, has the battery built up the memory that it needs to be replaced already? Is it the tablet that is malfunctioning? HELP!!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I had this issue and I resolved it by cleaning the battery conductor. I just used some alcohol and blew any dust particles away. In extreme cases you may need to solder. Try cleaning.

Mine is working great. You will need to use careful force.

Hello. The same problem kept happening to me. It happened for a couple months and then, one month before the warranty ran out (amid rumors of an Android update that never came) it stopped happening.

Thus, I thought it was a software problem that had resolved after some update, but one month after the warranty ran out it began rebooting again, mostly while doing things that required more power and when the battery was around 60%.

I noticed the battery took extremely long to discharge, and any attempt to discharge the tablet while running would result in a reboot. So I left it on and unplugged while in firmware download mode (power on + vol down) and it recalibrated itself to show the real life of the battery.

Regardless, the tablet kept rebooting. So I rooted it and installed Cyanogenmod 13, then went to 12 because of BT issues. With both systems the laptop would reboot as well.

Until the day I found it just wouldn't boot. Not even charge (I connected it and neither the charger not the tablet heated up). Only then I decided to open it, disconnected and reconnected the battery cables. It started again and hasn't rebooted since (it's been only a few days, so I'll have to test it a bit more).

PS: It was easier than I thought, even though I didn't have a fingernail-like tool. And everything got back in place without a sign of having been opened.
