    Wait, did that take away the pen input distortion on that side of the tablet then?

    I have had no distortion problems after the RMA. Can't remember how it was before.

    nice, going to hunt for the camera cables now. I never use that thing anyway ;d

    My network adapter keeps frinking out though. Maybe that's a sign I should look at the S3 again...

    The misogynistic tone on this forum...

    Twitter is to communications as haiku is to literature.

    I did not verbally insult any of local members, nor used really nasty words, still somebody edited my post. WTF?! It was a joke!!! This is like F-ing censorship. I am fed up with such practice. Don't wanna be a part of this gestapo crap anymore.
    Good bye my friends :(

    As there's no moderation log trail, I think the automatic language filter bot edited your post. The weirdest words can get edited out sometimes. Some words are obviously in the bot's edit list. So don't sweat it.

    Stick around.

    I've tried this fix before and it worked.
    But the problem happened again, so today I tried to fix it again, when I'm done my Tablet refused to turn ON. So I can't start it up right now.. Any ideas please?
    Thanks

    Try holding the power button for some period of time (perhaps 10 seconds?) while plugged in then releasing and pressing it again. Something like this forces a hard reset of the device. I can never remember the exact procedure of button presses though =P

    I've run into the same problem after messing with the cables... but also other things. I think you're experiencing an infamous "sleep of death" =P Messing with the cables seems to be one way of triggering it.

    Which fix did you do? Replacement or fiddling?

    Is this the same thing I had where I had to plug in the power cable before it would turn on again? (battery was at max charge)
