...that mess is underneath the screen? YumpinYiminey, that's brutal. I thought there was a thread(s) around the site & someone shot video of 'pressing-the-screen-too-hard'...it sure didn't look like that. Looked like oil/water, wacky. I'm not sure how they figured that was by pressure on the glass, you'd think it would crack before then? Dunno...but keep us posted on how things are going viper. Deep breaths...
I can only act as devil's advocate, but it appears from your previous posts that you purchased the tablet some time ago, apparently at least longer than 90 days. If that is so, I can somewhat understand the position that Asus has taken. I would imagine that someone at Asus has reasoned why did it take you so long to discover the defect? If the tablet has not been opened, how did the fingerprint get there, and more importantly, why was it not discovered when you first purchased the tablet? I think someone at Asus would understand that fingerprints under the glass would not just suddenly appear after 90 days. If the fingerprint was not noticed for a period of time in excess of 90 days, I can see why someone at Asus may well think that the fingerprint is yours. As I said, I am only presenting my thoughts as a devil's advocate, but you do have to consider such.

Thank you. I do understand what you're saying but in all honesty I didn't notice this when I first purchased the device. It could be that it has somehow progressively got worse, and therefore more noticeable. I is just incredibly frustrating that I know for absolute certainty that this tablet has never been opened. I would like someone from Asus to explain how this is possible without opening the device. It may not even be a finger print. That is just what it looks like
I think you should compare the finger-print on the screen with yours.
I think it is possible that you got a refurbished tablet, with the finger-print of a careless repairman.
You would not be the first to get a used product sold as new.
Not every salesman is trustworthy.
That's why i don't like to buy on the internet.
Finger-prints are mostly sweat that become visible by heating up.
That's why it is possible you didn't notice this at the beginning.
But are you absolutely sure it's on the inside?
Is it normal or reversed?
Try cleaning it with a special screen product.
You never know ;-)

For some shops it's made to easy to return a product. (Without much investigation)
If you compare your finger-print with the one on screen, and they are not the same, you can at least prove it wasn't you.
And you can't get a finger-print insite by hard pressing the screen.
And you can complain later if you notice the problem later, because it wasn't there earlier.
The only thing that can explane the finger-print is that your tablet screen was touched insite before it was sold.
An only the shop or Asus know what happened with it than.
They cannot put that on you.
Most repairshops can see if a product was opened by a client.
If they can't it is a problem for Asus to prove.
Keep conplaining until they take you seriously.

Maybe Asus has a point? Looking at your original picture of the damage, it's not really a finger print as such - or at least I can't see any trace of lines - just a finger tip sized area that is a slightly different colour.This is the third Transformer I have had. I've owned the TF101 (which exhibited a similar issue) and the TF201 Prime.
