Tomtom Bandit - keeps switching back on?

I've had my action cam about 5 months now, noticed recently it sometimes keeps switching itself back on when i've turned it off(held down the off button for 2 seconds)? Has anybody else had this problem? It turns itself back on approx 10-20 seconds after switching off. Screen is off etc not sleep mode.

    Hi urbanfireblade, this is very odd, I would be keen to see if any other users have experienced the same issue. If you remove and then reinsert the batt-stick doe's it still exhibit the same behaviour. Is your Bandit up to date with the latest firmware?

    Yes I've removed the batts tick multiple times and done a reset. Also it is running the up to date software. It seems to be anywhere from 20 seconds up to 3 minutes and happens randomly. The last 3 times I've tried to video it with my iPhone it hasn't done it but the last 6 weeks or so with maybe 3 times a week use it has done it 7 or 8 times.

    Hi guys, I've noticed this problem a couple of times. I remove the batt-stick after each jump to upload the videos and format the card each jump. I have a bigger problem of the Bandit occasionally locking up and needing a reset. One of the times was on exit so I got no video of the jump. I perform a factory reset about once every week or 2 but it doesn't seem to prevent the problem. Latest firmware etc...

    Hi both, can you let me know which SD cards you are using?

    Thanks, I'll pass this onto the team to see if they can identify the problem.

    Same for me but it's the 64Gb Lexar 633x. Mine still turns itself back on. Done it a handful of times more now, everything else seems to work fine.

    My bandit batstick was good up till a couple days ago, now it keeps turning on when its in and out of the bandit, even records for a second then stops. Ive plugged it into the pc but it disconnects after a couple seconds. Its like a flickering light that is useless and you cant turn off.
