This only worked as long as I shut the keyboard gently. The problem really seems to be mechanical. When sliding shut, the battery is jostled just enough to lose contact and shut the phone down. Placing a folded piece of paper between the battery and the non contact side of the phone to increase pressure slightly.
Hope this works for you as well

I have the SAME problem with my Gravity phone. I haven't figured out how to fix it yet, but it helps if you slide the phone open (and close it) carefully and slowly. Try that and it will shut off less frequently.

    Ok, think I may have actually fixed this problem.

    Go to Phone Settings (lower right hand of icons menu)

    Then go to 4. Phone Settings

    Go to auto Key Lock and turn that "Off"

    Then go back and go to 3. Display Settings

    Go to Backlight, then Duration

    Then change "On' to 30 seconds

    and change Dim to "Off" < very important that you do that

    It should stop shutting off randomly now, or at least shut off a lot less.

    I changed my phone to these settings this morning (just trying to tweak the problem away) and it hasn't shut off all day. Which is really good, considering it usually shuts off atleast once every hour.

    Let me know if that helped.

Mine does the same thing so u need to get a small piece of paper and fold it and put it on the side where it doesn't touch. Or u can just get a new battery from cell phone shop.net they have really cheap cell phone stuff their.

I tried both the solution posted by grecoj2 and the paper shim suggested by oqoqoqo. The phone has worked fine since. (It used to shut off randomly, among other problems.) I am currently trying it with just the paper shims (I set the autolock and dim back ON.)
I have a paper shim at the end of the battery opposite from the contacts, and a shim between the battery and the back cover.
I used to work at Moto, and handled a lot of phones. Many are very sensitive to momentary loss of power caused by small mechanical shocks. The Samsung Gravity is (if this is really the problem) EXTREMELY sensitive.

My daughter has a Koodo samsung slide phone - it is about 8 months old. Recently it has started randomly shutting off. Sometimes when she opens it, and sometimes just randomly. IS there a setting to fix...


Hi, when a phone randomly shuts off, it means that the phones memory is faulty or when an application you downloaded has virus.

What to do is this,

You can try this code first, *2767*2878#, If this not work,

You will have to flash the phone to restore the memory of the phone.

You can use this link to see how to flash your phone

Monitor shuts off randomly!


1. This is main-board related. You either have a Micro controller or power supply issue that needs to be address by a tech. Shut down is direct relation to a circuit component in the start up that has failed.

Shutting off


i have the same problem...laptop randomly shuts down, but its even done it within a minute of turning it on so i don't think its a heat issue. Sometimes it'll run for over an hour with no problem and never shut down, but other times it randomly shuts down sometimes within a minute, sometimes maybe 10 mins, sometimes 30 mins or more ...its maddening! i'd love to find a solution if anyone's found one. Thanks.
