This is what happened to my Walka 7. I put it down to my having had it on charge for too long. Was connected to the mains for a couple of days. Thought it had overheated because of this and "exploded".

You can take it to your nearest DStv Service Centre (not Agency) and swap it out for R300 for a Walka 4.3. This is the only DStv Mobile device we still keep in stock.

Regardless of what model you have, it will be swapped for a 4.3
