Overheating issue and cannot update iPlay40

Hi, I hope I can find some help here as I am having a couple of issues with my iPlay 40.

Firstly, I cannot use the OTA or local updates. I am on version V1.0_20210105-1554. Wireless updates tells me there is a new version (V1.0_20210121-1556), I download it, install it and I get an error message during installation.

I have tried downloading the newest version and install it locally, but this also fails.

My biggest issue is that when playing games, I sometimes get an error message that the tablet is overheating and it shuts off.  The strange thing is that it doesn’t even feel hot to touch!

I was hoping that an update might solve the issue, but I cannot get it to update. I tried to update connecting through the PC, but I cannot find USB drivers for it either.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have the same problem….but I found the solution and fixed mine. All I did was add some thermal tape to the inside of the back cover (over the cpu) and now I get better temperatures. It no longer turns off.

The back is held on by glue and is pretty thin….it’s does not snap into place. Look on Google for a picture of the tablet taken apart for reference and locate cpu…..then just buy some thermal tape and place a long strip on the inside of the back over that will sit directly over the cpu, then glue it back together. Don’t bother with Bangood….their customer service is terrible and will get u nowhere.

Had the same issue I rebooted the device and used a different launcher after reading else where this fixed the problem and guess what it fixed it …I used it for 6 hrs straight no problems n gave it a good run it performs really good now .
