This device is way past it's useful existence. It's starting to show its age as well.

You could try a factory reset as Mr. Sider may have mentioned above but you might have better luck using this device as an ornament on your holiday tree.

If you have room on your tab I'd recommend upgrading your device to basically anything Koodo currently offers. Today's devices are better in every conceivable way. Better battery, better screens, better storage, faster speeds

Your problem might just be the battery and you could probably pick one up on ebay for under 5$ but Tb, I wouldn't bother.

Sounds like you might need a new battery, its 10-15 dollars on eBay, that should hold you over until your tab clears for an upgrade
