Pitch black page...
I still get the black screen issue, always at the most inconvenient time. It actually happened during a Solo & Ensemble contest performance last weekend, which was mortifying. It happened twice today, fortunately during rehearsal. I'm now in the habit of flipping through every page once I get on stage.

As a software engineer, I'm trying to characterize the problem so it can be solved. Clearly, it only happens with PDF files, but the file length seems to be irrelevant. I've had it happen on a 350-page musical score, and I've had it happen on a 6-page choir piece. It has never happened with individual PNGs. Moving forward and back does not solve it, but rotating the screen to landscape and back to portrait does fix it.

It is possible that the cause is running out of resources during PDF rendering. I tend to leave my tablet on 24/7 with MobileSheets Pro running. Today, after it happened in rehearsal, I killed MobileSheets Pro and restarted it, and the concert itself went fine, but that could have been the luck of the draw. But if it is a resource problem, why does it not affect every page from then on?

I have started using PNGs for my critical long pieces, but because PNGs are not as convenient to import, it's not my preferred method. I'll comment about that in another thread.
