    Unhappy TF101 Turns On, But Only Has Black Screen

    My TF101 was working fine up to about two weeks ago, when I was at a conference. Had used it in the evening, and turned it off before going to bed. A few days later, when trying to turn it on, it acted like it wasn't doing anything -- just a black screen, no light indicators or anything. So, I plugged it in and charged it up, and now I only get a slight backlight but the screen remains black -- no icons, no battery indicators, nothing. I've tried the reboot by holding down the low volume button and the on/off button for 30 seconds, and it made some tones with the slight backlight but still black screen with no icons. I'm at a loss with what to do as my first concern was that it wasn't charging. BTW, this morning I must have received a couple of gmails because the tone rang for those after I turned it on.

    Any advice and counsel would be appreciated. I have enjoyed the TF101 but if I can't get it to work, will have to consider another tablet.

    I may be wrong but how about trying a cold restart.
    You have nothing to lose.

    Hold volume-down while turning it on, but if you can't get ANY screen response I think hardware/

    I am thinking hardware since you heard the GMail notification.

    If you have an HDMI cable, hook it up to your TV and see if the video is working through that.

    Most likely if Fredeurco suggestion of connection to your TV works the back light is bad. A way to verify for sure is to go into a dark room and shine a flash light on the screen you should see the images.

    There is a connector inside in the lower right corner when placed on its face. The connector most likely popped off. This is why everything works but there is no display.

    Is the backlight powered by the same connector? My screen is fine (can see with torch & touch works) but backlight is completely dead. Was planning on taking it apart later today to have a poke around.

    Any luck? I seem to have the very same problem, but haven't figured out where the backlight connection is.

    I opened it up yesterday, wiggled and pushed the screen ribbon cable highlighted in the picture above. Flipped it over and working! woo!

    Looks like the same cable runs video, touch & blacklight power.
