    TF suddenly turns into Black Screen

    I was browsing some articles in the internet then my transformer suddenly stops working and got stuck on a black screen. If I click on the power button it will wake my tf again but it still is in a black screen. Zenonia 4 was running in the background while I was browsing in chrome.

    Few questions:

    If you shine a light on the screen, can you still see the screen? If so, your backlight has failed or the cable got disconnected.

    What happens if you long press (30 seconds) on the power button, then a 3 second press?

    Have a rip through this guide. It should get you back up and running again.

    Long pressing it did it! I was worried that I bricked it! Do you know what might have caused it? I was just browsing via chrome. Although zenonia 4 was running in the background. Thanks Frederuco!

    I honestly do not know. Sounds kinda like the sleep of death, but it happened when it was on.

    Is it possible you were pressing VOL UP and POWER? This will put it in APX mode which is a blank screen and it will power on and off. This is for developers wanting to move files around I believe.

    Nope. My other hand is just holding my transformer while the other one is clicking something in the browser. I thought that it was some sort of memory problem but it seems ok now. Just to be sure did a reboot and a cold boot before using it again.

    It could also be something changed your backlight to the dimmest possible setting-- since a long-power-up restarted the machine, and clearly, it reset the backlight to "normal". Just a guess, though.
