    Ok my name is Joe and I have a couple of issues with my LG VK700 5.0.2 tablet. First off doing a factory reset is of NO help... Might as well start off with the most annoying of em.

    1) This comes in 1 of 2 forms. The screen keyboard will either A) Doing now... Type away n the keyboard vanishes/ vanish reappears. Gotta keep hitting the typing area to get it back, or B) Like playing a game like Clash of Clans. The keypad may not pop up or may vanish like the first only I can NOT get it back.

    1.5) This one kinda , n VERY rare, but when using the backspace it not only erases the last character, but MIGHT erase the whole word(s) or change the word(s). More minor n not as annoying but still..

    2) Just as annoying. Some, not all apps, all my browsers, Clash Royal, Anchient Aliens, SimCityBuild it, Forge of Empires, but there are apps that NEVER do it. Crashes out to Android Desktop with never an error message like I hit the Home button, but closes the game or app out, after a moment of black screen. Turning tablet off/restart helps it some, but eventually does it. The game/app is still in the multi task window. Just like I exit out.

    2.5)Not sure if this is related to 2 but only 2 times the tablet has gone to black screen only to reboot itself.

    Like i said factory reset is NO HELP, it didn't always do it, so hardware specs can't be an issue. I thought of trying to access the screen, my HTC ONE M9 had it, soI assume this tablet does too. Accss the hidden OS menu so I can totally replace the OS on it.

    Any help is appreated! Thanks.

    When you type, are you inadvertently tapping the back button? That can make the keyboard disappear. Also, have you tried installing another keyboard and seeing if it happens with that one as well?

    If the keyboard just did an auto-replace for you, backspacing once will usually revert the word back to what you originally typed. Is that part of what's going on?

    Do you have any "memory booster" apps installed? These kinds of apps can cause all kinds of problems, like the one you're describing.

    This can be tough to figure out. It could be an app you installed that's causing instability -- you'd have to uninstall apps one by one to figure out which one is the culprit, but if the problem happens infrequently, this can be difficult if not impossible. Or it might be a glitch in the tablet's firmware (which you won't be able to do much about either).

    No, I am not hitting the back button at all.

    On the word replacing, no I'll try n screen shot it if possible. Would make this explanation better, but what it does is when the backspace is pressed it will either add letters to the word likkee that or if I move the curser else ware in my text like back to the like I get something like "wordlikkeethat" that or "word that that". Like I said a screen shot or video will make this better to understand.

    No, no memory booster, but did try a few diff apps to make the thing run better, but that was before I first tried the factory reset option. Since I did resets, they haven't been reinstalled.

    I noticed the crashing issue was still happening right after doing the first factory reset. I had just started reinstalling apps when I noticed it still did it. I didn't have much installed, mostly Firefox. After that I did like 3 other factory resets. I think whatever started it got into the firmware, that's why I'd like to figure out how to access the firmware load menu on it, and replace it with a clean install. Plus I can get rid of crap I'll never use lol

    See if any of this happens in Safe Mode, which is still worth trying even though you've done several factory resets.
