    TF201 bricked itself?

    Hello,
    Yesterday I ecountered interesting thing with my TF201. It rebooted, during the reboot I accidentally "closed it" (screen goes to dock keyboard). After opening, there was a message about problems with encryption - and nothing was happening further. So I did the reboot, tablet stops at 'ASUS' screen. I can go to menu by pressing power+vol_dn. I have tried them all:
    RCK - displays some messages in upper-level corner, and that's it (stays on 4-icon screen)
    Android - reboots and ends with robot with red triangle
    USB - displays some messages only (stays on 4-icon screen)
    Wipe - after confirmation it reboots, displays the same robot as for the update, boots again and stucks at 'ASUS' screen.

    Tablet was never rooted, or updated with non-official soft. Updated only using official procedure with official updates. Literally, nothing was done with it (even no tuning or advanced apps).
    So what could have happened? Is there a way to unbrick that?
    best, T.

    If nothing else works you can always try to drain the battery completely and after the tablet powers off due to battery being empty plug in the power cord and see if that breaks it free. Sounds weird I know but with this TF201 there was a firmware update about 15 months ago and this battery drain saved a lot of bricked devices from being sent back to Asus.

    @Mickeylittle: thank you for your answer. I was trying to drain the battery but it did not help. Bad that tablet is just 2 months after warranty period - and it seems that it just bricked itself without no reason.
    Do you know if it's possible to flash, or do anything?
