    [Solved] Backlight turns on to blank screen

    I've been having trouble with my Asus MeMO Pad 10 FHD for a few months now, it worked well for a about a year then suddenly the screen started coming up blank. When I press the power button the backlight turns on but it remains a blank screen and when I power cycle it with power+vol down the backlight turns off, then on and it makes the start up sound.

    A couple weeks after the problem started it was suddenly working again like nothing had gone wrong but that only lasted a couple days before it went back to the blank screen again. I opened it up, disconnected all the ribbon cables and securely reconnected them, and tried turning it on again. I got the Asus logo on the screen and thought it was fixed but then it just went back to the backlight with a blank screen.

    Has anyone encountered this before or have any advice of what I could try next? Its very frustrating that it actually works some of the time but not other times.

    Thanks

    Update: I've plugged the tablet in to a TV via the micro HDMI and I can view the screen on the TV no problem and the tablet is responding to touch commands. It seems that both the digitizer and backlight are working fine so the problem must be with the LCD. I've tried again disconnecting the ribbon cables to the LCD but it doesn't seem to make any different.

    Could the ribbon cable itself need to be replaced? Or would the problem be with the LCD screen?

    Alternate question, does one ribbon cable control both the LCD and backlight or are they separate?

    Welcome to the forum

    I don't see anything in your post that would lead me to think the LCD is OK. It does seem that everything is working except the LCD.

    Fixed it! In one last act of desperation I took the tablet apart one last time and cleaned the ribbon contacts with an eraser. After reconnecting the cable and putting it all back together I pushed the power button and glory of glories that Asus logo appeared! Everything seems to be working well now!
