    No display on screen, HDMI works

    I'm looking to see if I can resolve my problem. I grabbed my tablet the other day and tried to use it, got nothing. Thought maybe the battery died so I plugged it in and left it for a few hours, tried again to use it again and nothing. I've had the sleep mode issue before, thought maybe it went into a coma, so I reset it with the vol down and power button, and still got nothing. I can feel it vibrate when holding them after 10 or so sec, and i hear it boot back up so i knew it was still working. I plugged an hdmi cable and hooked up the tablet to my TV and saw my screen, but I had nothing on the tablet display. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Or is the screen dead? I also did the paperclip reset as well.

    Also, at the bottom of this page you'll see similar threads listed. I would check those as well.

    I have done the hard reset. I have no "faint" light, I have no light whatsoever. I reseated the cables within the tablet, after ripping it apart, carefully. When plugged into the TV, I can control the tablet with touch, so I know that works, but there is just no display. I checked that thread and many others like it about the TF101, a lot of them don't seem to come to resolution, they just fade away after many suggestions of the hard reset and reseat cables. is it possible to have a bad screen since I can still touch the screen and get response?

    Did you do the flashlight trick?

    Goto a darkened area and shine a flashlight on the screen it you see the home screen icons than it's the backlight if not than it's the display.

    If in the US and don't want to DIY try this company.

    This exact issue happened to me. It's most likely your back light. Go to a dark room and look at it with a flash light and you will probably see the screen right where the flashlight shines. I shipped mine to Asus to have it fixed. But if it isn't under warranty unfortunately it may be about the same price to just upgrade to a TF700. If you have already taken it apart once maybe you can buy a new light and fix it.

    Good luck.

    I'm having the same problems of the black screen, yet the HDMI works to the TV. Using a flashlight shows nothing. I was wondering what cables to try to reseat. Thanks, TF-201

    I did look at that, but the TF201 is a bit different from the TF101. Thanks though.
