Default Bricked Hardware issue?

Today I booted up my tf101 and the screen stayed black then flickered blue lines across the top. I tried hard reset, no dice, tried to boot into twrp (I was running katkiss 4.4 fine for weeks), and the screen flickered blurry images, nothing. Tried to push stock software with easy flasher, looks like it works, but same issue when I turn the tablet back on. Weird thing is my pc still sees my tablet and ext sd files. Anyone have any ideas? My son is not a happy camper at the moment.

Is there a chance it has been knocked or dropped ?

The display cable has a habit of coming lose pretty easily if they receive a bump but are fairly simple to fix if you don't mind opening it

Have a look at the links in this thread to check that cable

Thanks man, I bet that's what it is. I don't have a n5 bit to pull it apart, I'll have to stop at the hardware store tomorrow.

Good luck!

I think I just used a normal pozzy screwdriver with mine, get one the right size with a little extra pressure and they turn ok - its only the first 2 screws near the charging port that are Torx, the rest inside are all tiny phillips
