K3 freezes randomly

Hi guys,
I have my k3 for few years. Suddenly it started to freeze randomly. It started after I downloaded a new mobi book from the inet and started to read it. Can it be virus-infected? (silly, but still?)
I don't remember anything else that might cause it to do so, pattern in actions that cause it to freeze. Sometimes i can read for an hour, sometimes it freezes just after power on.
After that it restarts after a while (sometimes only after charging)
I tried to reset to factory, it didn't help.
I disassembled it and vacuumed the dust. Didn't help.
Would appreciate any suggestions. Should I try to flash the firmware again (it is 3.4)? Or it is the same result as factory reset?
Or does it look like a hardware issue (no clue why really).
Please advice

Factory reset then reload a SMALL number of books not including your latest ones (i.e. books you know work properly). If it still freezes its almost certainly a hardware problem and attempting to flash it may make it totally unusable.

Did a hard reset again. The device froze right after showing a welcome page. They call it welcome
So this must be a hardware issue.
