Hi I have a tf300t and just today the screen went black there is a backlight, it charges, just no picture and it's never been dropped. What could be wrong with it? Cm10.1

Most likely a SOD. When you restart it, does the screen work fine?

You could run a logcat before getting the SOD.

If you hook it up to an external TV monitor via HDMI, what happens?

Nothing happened, I tried several times, and I worked before the screen went out.

If nothing else works, you could try disconnecting and reconnecting the display wire: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Disassem...ad+TF300/11794

The motherboard circuit routes graphics to the HDMI port independently of the lcd cable and the lcd itself. The part that controls graphics is embedded inside the CPU. So it looks like the problem is more serious than just connections. Though I guess it doesn't hurt to try anything at this point. For the GPU to fail without any kind of physical impact is really new to me. But what do I know?
