I had the same issue. The Zenpads don't use the standard power+vol. up reboot method, but if you hold power + vol. down, it should put you into a reboot screen after a short bit. Just select "Continue Power On" from there and it should work.

I've had the same issue, and tried that. It made the backlight turn on and off, but did nothing to actually fix the problem. Am I doing something wrong? Do I just need to wait a little while after? What's going on?

David, my Zenpad S 8 showed weird rainbow colors & was unresponsive to touch before it went black. Upon rebooting, like you said, I could tell (especially in a darker room) via the backlight that it was on, and using the volume keys the speakers responded also indicating it was on. I will need to contact Asus & send them a video of what's happening, but for now I have discovered a temporary solution. Believe it or not, giving a hard rap with a knuckle or two in the center of the back of the tablet springs the display back to life. I'm guessing something must be connected poorly in the inside. Give it a try.

In my case, the tablet was still under warranty, so Asus fixed it, although they didn't make clear what they did. If the tablet's not under warranty, from video's like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpJs_OI8... the problem is probably that the connector from a ribbon cable or two has gotten loose. Look at Amazon, Ebay, Alibaba, etc. for a kit to open most phones & tablets. The cost should be less than US$10. The fellow in the video uses a credit card! Anyway, the idea is to open the device and re-seat the ribbon cable(s).
