    I bought my daughter the Android4 tablet for christmas, she loves it as do we all. We seem to have problems when charging it though. For some reason it becomes extra sensitive and does its own thing. It tends to not want to do what you are trying to do, or it just goes mad and flicks to numerous pages :(

    She plays on it a lot of the time but then gets frustrated when it needs to be charged as she knows it wont work right, so we have to leave it alone whilst charging, then unplug it and play again.

    Any reasons why its doing this, its really annoying as she only has a limited on it.

    Welcome to the forum

    Try a different power outlet. It could be a polarity or grounding problem.

    I am a little late, but welcome to the forum!

    Glad you found a fix. Must be a poorly regulated charger that came with it.
