    Weird issue with my screen! Looking for some help!

    So, I bought a refurbished A500 about two months ago from Secondipity. Last night I woke up (I work third shift, haha) to my screen flickering in the most peculiar way. I am hoping its a software issue, but the more I've been looking into it on the net, I think the screen might be broken or defective. Everything is running fine except the display, right from the moment I turn it on the screen starts getting very scrambled and the acer logo is a weird tinted yellow. From there the screen shifts to the right and is almost like static on a tv. I can still make out some things on the screen. I'm going to try taking a video of it and upload to youtube. Hopefully its alright to post a link to the video. I'd like to know what you guys think I should do, I don't believe this tablet is under any warranty. I really hope its just a loose cable or something easily fixable! I'm too addicted to this thing to lose it!!

    Woo hoo!!! Problem solved! I got an email back, saying I couldn't return it. So I figured what the hell and popped it right on open. I didn't even do anything other than remove the cover and the screen is working properly again, I suppose the ribbon connecting the screen was loose! Thank god. I'm not out 200 dollars!!!

    Oh thank you for the welcome! Haha, I guess I never properly introduced myself! Oh and for some reason my tablet screen keeps getting the "scrambles". It seems like if I pop the back case off and fiddle with wires it works again. I really hope this doesn't keep happening so often!! I hope sometime in the future to upgrade to new electronics, not refurbished ones! Ha ha.
