Hello TW99. I joined the forum just to say thank you! I just purchased the Dell Venue 8 pro and after a few days my screen went black. I used your instructions and did just as you said. All is well! Thank you for sharing your expertise with others! I hope this post will give relief and confidence to otherwise shattered Dell Venue 8 purchasers that everything will be okay.
