Hi all first, as I am new here and discover the (great) forums !
So I had a problem and after several tries, decided I would ask here in case someone someone had some knowledge / idea of it...
So two weeks a go a friend borrowed my tab 15 minutes to play games on it - when suddenly the tab shut off
. Then I tried to reboot it, but it would'nt ! I had really no idea why ; only clue I had is I updated to ICS
in late August when the update appeared.
After some time spent looking for a solution, I decided to buy a new battery
and replace it, which I did. Then yay, the tab takes the charge, so I charge it entirely with the new battery.
Once done I finally boot up again... Yay, all seems to be working, all's here, as before... but I soon discover an entire area of the touchscreen won't work
It's located in the middle of the screen, like a large vertical band
; and the whole touchscreen works except here. Touch inputs won't react at all, small or long touches.
Just in case, thinking I may have badly reconnected the touhscreen connection, I go and check in the tab a second time, but no, nothing more, it's well connected.
Now I don't know what to think at all, I used my friend Google but did not find really similar problems...
So just in case I could find a solution here, any idea ?
Just to get an idea, the problem looks like this when I use a drawing program :
