My phone tends to shut down on its own whenever it wishes and turns back on at random. what might be the cause, can you help?


try this hard reset method

Resetting the phone

Resetting the phone deletes all data, including downloaded applications, and resets the
phone back to its initial state, the state before you turned on the phone for the first time.
Make sure to back up important data you have on the phone before you reset the phone.
To reset the phone
1 From the Home screen, drag upwards.
2 Find and tap Settings > SD card, USB Mass Storage & phone storage > Factory
data reset > Reset phone.
3 Enter your screen unlock pattern.
4 Tap Erase everything.

There is also a RESET button on the back side of the device (under the IMEI sticker in the lower left corner) under the battery cover.

Pls do not format your mobile storage card by PC it will get pc settings stored and u will not be able to use it on cell again. Hope you have not tried it once and due to which cell is not recognizing the card. Guess you will have to change it else try on some other mobile see if it works.
