    Black screen on TF101 - read the forum answers but no joy

    Hi. I have read the various threads on the dreaded black screen on a TF101, but can't find an answer to my current problem (unless the answer is to send it back):

    I bought the TF101 within the last 4 weeks.
    When I bought it (ex-demo) it was on honeycomb, and it was that way until yesterday.
    It was working fine yesterday evening. This morning I try to turn it on and I see nothing on the screen at all.
    However, it is clearly on, as I can hear the sounds of emails arriving etc.
    If I press the power button to power it off, it will do so, but will always boot straight back up - with a blank screen.
    I have tried the volume down + power method and it does not change the outcome. Of course, I can't start this from a powered off situation, as I indicated earlier, it seems to come straight back on again from power down.
    I have tried powering off multiple times, holding the power button down for 30+ seconds etc. etc., to no effect.
    I see there is a reset hole by the HDMI port, and I havent seen anything on the forums about use of that reset hole. Stuck a paperclip in there, but nothing interesting happened.
    When I plug the USB cable into the PC, windows explorer sees the drive; however, Asus Sync tells me that there is no Asus device connected(note that I only installed Asus Sync today to see if I could make the device do something if connected to a PC).

    Any suggestions, or should i just send it back (it's under warranty, but I need the tablet urgently, and I also don't want to appear like an idiot, if it's really easy to fix).

    Thanks in advance for your help
    Steve

    I am going through the exact same thing as you. The little hole next to your HDMI is the microphone so the paperclip will not fix the screen. My tablet is being RMA'd this week
