I purchased an ASUS MeMO Pad 10 ME102A-AI-PK 10.1" 16 GB tablet

Customer Question
from Amazon 10/4/2014. Over past...
I purchased an ASUS MeMO Pad 10 ME102A-AI-PK 10.1" 16 GB tablet from Amazon 10/4/2014. Over past few months I/ve had problems with the screen tiling/scrolling several times per second, blanking (not sleeping), Chrome locking many times to day, and screen turning grey, not responding to on/off button. This happens regardless of app or battery charge. Sometimes removing and reinserting USB power cord, or removing and reinserting headset cable will bring tablet back to life. The device is basically unusable at this point.

If I wait long enough it gives 'chrome has stopped' or it just goes to home screen. this is the least of my problems. Screen problems make the device basically unusable
Laptop technician: Richard, Laptop Specialist replied 2 years ago
Thanks, ***** ***** can give insight into what is causing this all as the problem is either the internal memory or the firmware that is the issue and we need to confirm which.
To do this we will need to reset the Pad, this will wipe all your data and reload the firmware which returns the device to an as new state.
Please follow the below procedure to do this.
Turn the device, then press and hold Volume Up and Power.
Release the power button when you see the logo,but continue to hold Volume Up until it appears the recovery screen.
Then use the volume buttons to navigate the menu and select Wipe data/factory reset.
Press home to choose the selection and press Volume Up to continue.
Let this complete and when it has, tell me if it now functions correctly.
Let me know the results please

Laptop technician: Richard, Laptop Specialist replied 2 years ago

same result
Laptop technician: Richard, Laptop Specialist replied 2 years ago
Thanks, ***** ***** the issue
It is the internal memory that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to reinstall it. The fact that we cannot get to the recovery window, confirms it is the memory that shorts out, and causes the device to fault.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return it to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

I bought it through Amazon and their return policy is they except returns for any reason within 30 days from purchase. I bought 10/4/14
Laptop technician: Richard, Laptop Specialist replied 2 years ago
Thats for items you changed your mind on, this is a warranty exchange do your covered by the warranty, though as its a year old it may have expired, it will depend on the warranty given at the time of purchase.
But you can initiate the warranty return process here

when i click on link it shows 0 orders from 2014 that can be returned
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I've had problems with other electronics purchased from Amazon and was told after 30 days from purchase have to contact manufacturer or manufacturer's authorized service center
Laptop technician: Richard, Laptop Specialist replied 2 years ago
ok strange, but then you will have to call Asus on 1800 30 6351 directly to organise this as Amazon is not going to do it for you if they are saying this.
