    When my screen times out or I press the power button after the tablet has gone off the screen does not return. I have to press and hold the on button for it to restart every time. There are lights and even sounds behind but just a black screen unless I restart. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to the forums. I think that device has a home button. Does that wake it up?

    Thanks but no- it wakes up the buttons on either side first time I press but the screen still stays dark.

    I have the same problem as of about 24 hours ago. Mine started when I noticed about a quarter of the screen seemed dark. I shut it down and restarted. Since then, if I hit the power button to wake it up, the two buttons flanking the home button flash but it doesn't wake. I have to boot it to get it to run. Everything else seems normal.

    UPDATE I unplugged the LCD cable and plugged it back in and it fixed this problem. If you need help getting to the LCD cable search youtube for it.

    As suggested, I unplugged the LCD cable and plugged it back and the button became active for sometime. I need a permanent solution to this problem.
