    TF300TG Screen Lock Problem

    I have TF300TG, and I found that the screen of my tablet is cracked. There is a slight crack on the left side of my tablet.

    I can touch the "wireless" and "power indicator" icons, but I can't open the screen lock. When I touch the lock icon, there is nothing happened.

    How can I solve this problem ?

    Thanks

    Re: TF300TG Screen Lock Problem

    First bummer about the crack...I worry about it all the time because I use my tablet daily, as long as 18-hrs/day.

    Second, it sounds as if the touch-screen layer may be damaged by the crack or the crack is interfering with the sensors/touch-layer. Only way I would say you can fix it is to send it back to Asus, if out of warranty, send it to a third-party repair facility, or DIY by ordering parts online and have some fun?

    Then again can you live w/o access to the screen lock? And instead rely on the screen timeout? Not ideal but it should work.

    Welcome to the forum Olcar, really sorry about your cracked screen! Is the crack, on the left side of your screen, at the bottom? The 300 doesn't have gorilla glass, and it seems that some of the cracks might have come from docking into the keyboard...do you have/use one? When you talk about not being able to open screen lock, are you talking about the lock at the bottom/middle of the screen? If that's it, it doesn't seem to be much of a handicap...at least to me...since I rarely use mine!

    Not exactly at the bottom, it reaches top from bottom all the screen now. I don't have keyboard, I think it as cracked at my backpack. The lock icon is on the right of the screen.

    Perhaps the lock icon on the right of the screen is unique to the 300, I just don't have anything like that on my 101! The only "lock" I have is in the middle/bottom, and I also have an app locker in my notification area. What exactly do you use it for?
