[Q] Screen hard to turn on and turns off randomly
I've had the TF101 since it was first released in the USA. I haven't really used it much but lately I found a niche use for the tablet. The problem is most of the time it's really hard to turn the screen on. Almost every press to the power button will turn the screen on for about half a second and then it turns off. Then I have to wait about 5 sec before I can turn the screen on again but most of the time it will just repeat the same process. This is really frustuating. It appears this is less frequent if the tablet is laying flat instead of being held in hand, but I usually need to try it around 5 times before the screen will stay on.
The second problem is the screen will sometimes randomly turn off. Most of the time the screen will stay on for hours when I use it. Sometimes though, it will just turn off and then I'm met with the first problem. This is a sudden shutoff with no warning. Other times the right side of the screen will glow really bright before turning off. It appears to happen more frequently when I'm moving the tablet.
I'm using a rooted stock ICS rom. I'm pretty sure this is a hardware problem. Has anyone encountered this before? Is this something I can fix myself?
