MK802 IIIs constantly crashing

Postby dano307 » Tue Dec 03, 2013 10:17 pm


I have been an android user for years and recently purchased the MK802IIIS which plugs into my TV and uses a 2.1A USB power supply.

Everything started off really well and I got a lot of stuff downloaded and was loving the amount of stuff this piece of kit could do! But then it started randomly crashing when I was watching stuff. The screen will either just go black or a different colour with lines across it and not come back on until I unplug the power and plug it back in.

I've tried recovering the firmware using the guide that was sent out with the device but the problems persisted. I have had 3 different FWs on the device but nothing changes. I've tried a different TV & different micro USB cable but still to no avail.

I really don't want to give up on it because it's a fantastic piece of kit!

Does anybody have any tips to help me get over this problem? I've attempted emailing RKM but not heard anything as of yet... Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have the same problem: MK802IIIS crashes constantly, some times even during boot... tried every rom, bought a 5V/2A charger, nothing works. I think it could be heating problem. My last resort is to buy a heatsink and put it on the CPU...

I'm really disappointed with the MK802s in general: I first bought a MK802III and while it does crash only from time to time, the powering micro USB is very fragile and broke after 3 weeks. I had to use tape to maintain the USB cable in a position that works.

Then, I bought the MK802IIIs (because of the problems I had with the MK802III) and got -I think- heat issues.

Then came the MK802IV but I didn't want to buy it seeing all the problems I had with the previous models (and I think I did well because I heard there was a lot of wifi issues).
