Assuming this is a G1, there should be a UART_TX pad on the motherboard. I haven't done this in a long time, but you can try connecting to it (3.3v TTL, 115200 bauds, 8 bits, no parity) and see if there's a boot log transmitted upon reset.

Ok, I will not touch the motherboard. It's a revision A (NW280AA). I'm not experienced with attaching to UART TX. Any hints, where i can find it on the board? I would need to find the hardware and time (and motivation) to start this experiment.

Long shot but did you try to increase the screen brightness? Hold down the ON button and press the '+' key.

Just tried that, unforunately this didn't work either. I didn't use the Prime very often but when i heard about a new firmware i upgraded.

Thank you,
