    Exclamation My Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) has a dark screen.

    Just yesterday my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Ed. started acting weird. Now whenever i press main button the screen won't show anything. But tablet itself seems to be fully functional in anything else. I still can touch-unlock it, do stuff and hear responding sounds. But the screen is down. Then only I realized that the brightness is absolutely down by looking at the tablet as close as I can on light. Tried to regulate the brightness and check autobrightness. Not helping. Tried to reset device. Not helping either. And the thing is whenever I restart my Note the brightness comes back. And after first time I lock the screen with power button after restart the dark screen comes back. What to do?

    Get it serviced. Sounds like a hardware issue, unfortunately.

    I've had this before. Returned it, got a new one. Now, it just happened again. Began with a corner of the tablet looking dark. Reset it, and screen never came back on. Did you ever find a solution?

    Any chance it was like this? I noticed this darker area, although it's not always like this. Idk either i should return it or keep using and hope it's a software issue.

    It is not as bad as it looks in this picture, but turns reading into quite an annoying task due to the brightness difference.
    ps: Made all tests available on display tester - this pic is one of them- and no issues like dead pixels etc

    Your tablet should not have ANY screen issues... not for the price you paid. If you are able to exchange, don't hesitate !
    Just my 2 cents

    Welcome to the club all and include myself. It happened to me yesterday while using the tab and the screen start to flickering. A restart and booomm, black screen and shame on sammy crap.
    But I managed to fixed it myself and got the screen back. See how long before it gonna happen again. Others at xda have reported same problem and crappy quality control or whatever crap by sammy.

    Possible fix:
    Remove the backcover, can be easily done by credit card or just with fingernails.
    Disconnect LCD ribbon cable and battery cable. Wait few minute, before reconnnect both cables again and if 1st try didnt work. Repeat same procedure until get the screen back.

    Someone had same issue and sended it to sammy service. He got the tab back and only the battery module was replaced.
    So dont know what the heck is causing this issue and more peoples lately have reported same issue.
