does it happen on AC or battery or both, if its on battery, your battery connections could be loose or not the slide clips are not locking properly, turn the unit over and try moving the battery and see what happens

Does the problem occur when on battery? Plugged in? Plugged in with the battery removed?

Like rrfranczak3 suggested, my first suspect would be a loose battery.
