Just bought an Toshiba AT200-101 and immediately found a big problem. Quite often the screen starts flickering and then get unresponsive. After I turn off the screen it starts working again, at least for a while.
I have done factory reset and even with not apps installed it behaves the same, it seems like I'm not with alone with this issue as there is a youtube video that shows the issue.
same screen problem here, AT 200 bought in France. Also since a last Toshiba update (available from System updatr) WIFI doesn't work anymore a message says Wifi error when trying to activate it. toshiba support says it should send a link to fix this problem. I've waited a week so far without being able to use my tablet.
It look like you’ve got different issue as described by niol1000 and FredCL_1
So next time you should open another thread.
However, it seems that something went wrong during the update and since the WFI does not work you will not be able to receive other updates… so in such case you will need to get in contact with an ASP to fix this

What Android kernel and built number do you have exactly?
Did you notice this after an update?
My Android Kernel version is 184.108.40.206-g62374b3
Build Number HTK55D.05.5.0003.
I haven't done any update since I got it (no update available on the Toshiba service station), I bought my tablet recently 10/3/2012.
I had the same problem with mine: sometimes, I am not exactly sure when, the clock starts to show and disappear like if I were tapping constantly on it...
Another thing I've seen is at the Market, where sometimes some icons start to blink, until a scroll the page. Maybe same problem, in a different position of the screen?
I changed the tablet for a new one, and it had the same problems (I bought them in Spain).
Is this a problem of the OS? Or just a hardware problem with no update possible to fix it?
Blocking and unblocking the screen fixes the problem... But i think that considering the price of this tablet, there shouldn't be problems like these, because they only decrease the quality of the device.
Anyone to help us on the problems about the screen?
Toshiba you should have tested your product, you only needed to do it for a couple of minutes. This is not an occasional problem but a major issue.
For a tablet priced so high in the market this shouldn't happen. I'm starting to think that I made a wrong choice.
Faulty tablet and more expensive and any other tablet in the market, if I could get my money back....
As a consumer I shouldn't be bothered by this kind of problems. The major interaction for a tablet with the user is the screen and Toshiba made a tablet with screen problems...You can see the contradiction here.
Just a small update, i went to the store and changed to a new onebut still have the same problem. I think the only hope now to get it fixed is to wait for the Android 4.0 update that Toshiba promised. Hopefully they have fixed it by then...
Same problem here with the screen. Returned the tablet to Amazon got another one, lo and behold the same problem happened again on the second one.
I will be sending this one back too unless there is an update in the next couple of days or at least a decent acknowledgment that Toshiba recognises this issue and is working on a fix
Same problem with the display here. I bougth the tablet in germany and after 2 month I bring it back to the dealer. If I get back again a broken tablet, then it goes again back to Toshiba and that was it with Toshiba and I want my money back.
