Default Unresponsive tablet screen

Hi
I returned home from holiday the other day to my TF101 and I can't turn it on. The keyboard charges no problem, but I'm not sure what the problem is with the screen. The power button is unresponsive, and I'm not sure if it charges when it's plugged in.

Any suggestions? Our shall I send it Asus for repair?

It is not rooted, and had the official ics update.

Just installing a few roms to test then will settle on one :P

I am having the same issue just today. Tried hard reset and holding power down for 30+ secs. Also tried with the micro sd out.

Some advice would be great.

Ok,

So my tablet is definatley running. It's just that the screen won't turn on. I am able to pull it apart, is there anything I should look for or had the screen just given up the ghost.

Weird thing is the actual touch is working as I can hear it unlock to say the camera but just black screen. I have gone to a dark room to see if there is any back light but no go. It's as if it was turned off.

Bit over it.

I spoke with Asus UK support today, they said they have had a few dodgy screens before. Have arranged for then to repair it under manufacture warranty. They picking it up tomorrow.

I'll update you on the outcome
