LCD remains dark (backlight is on)

Post by Sascha »

Hi,

I've just googled the net up & down but can't seem to find a solution:
Last night I turned my Archos 101 G9 Turbo 250GB into sleep mode (hit the pwr button briefly, as usual) but when I tried to switch it on today, the display remained dark. But: the LED backlight is on. First thought was it had a wake-up problem. Did a hard reset, but didn't do a thing, no boot screen. HDD wakes up, and the device is apparently booting up, though.

Thing is: I can successfully operate it via HDMI. Also, the screen accepts *input* as usual, it's just dark.

I moved the brightness slider around (using HDMI, of course), but nothing happens.

Tried recovery mode (pwr + vol+). HDMI output displays the usual white screen, the built-in lcd does not.

The installed firmware is 4.0.28 (latest, already).

I've openend it and checked the flex cable and the pcb-side connector. All is well. Was expecting that, though, as I haven't even moved it a bit since it went into sleep mode yesterday.

Any ideas? Thanks for any hints or whatever.

Update:
Nevermind, I've sold the tablet on ebay (as defective). Don't know whether the LCD can be reactivated or not, I hope so.
Sad to see it go, I liked it. Despite that issue, a solid & sturdy pal. Godspeed. :/

When they ask to register my tablet I can't, because I don't know it's product key. It can be read out from the menu, but in my case it's not an option.????

totally agree, does not work all the time and hard to receive a reply from their support department.
