ROG Phone 2 screen Black out issue.

Star II
My Rog Phone 2 screen automatically goes dark but I can still hear apps running and can interact with the screen if know where the buttons are.
This started a week ago while Playing PUBG. The screen went completely black but I could still hear what was going on. Recently it has been happening even during charging .
I decided to find the source and in doing so I found that whenever the temperature goes beyond 42°C , the screen goes dark. Sometimes to such an extent that I have to soft reboot to get it working. It usually becomes normal after the temperature drops to 41°C and below. I further Confirmed this was related to temperature by running 3D Mark GPU test, and as soon as temperature hit 42°C, my screen went dark. Also Game Genie stops running (air triggers included) after the screen regains display.
The other threads referring to Screen blackouts during charging and gaming may also have a similar issue and yes, I ran the GPU test after the April 5 security patch update and still the results were same.
Kindly look into this.
Thank you.
EDIT: This does not happen when screen recording is on. I tried running GPU test again with screen recording and the display never blacked out even though the temperature touched 44°C at some point.

ok.... interesting. Not all of the others have the exact same issue as you do but one or two of them have a screen that goes black without the device crashing. I want to get SN, log and video from you too. Expect to get a private message soon (envelope icon in top right corner)

Hey Ander,
If you are from Asus company and actually can help,Then I Have to say that after updating to android 10 this RESTARTING ISSUE HAS STARTED ALOT on my rog 2 also. It has never happened before that. I used to watch YouTube videos and then play games ,again watch videos no issues. Just frame drops when phone is heated alot while playing games. but not even a single day it RESTARTED on its own. Now its been 2 weeks and almost on alternate days while playing games phone freezes and restarts.
Today I wrote complaint about this through your app and I got Reply from Anjali Choudhary.
However whatever resolutions she gave me i tries all of them already and nothing seems to work.
finally i factory reset my phone and now my phone is stuck on forst screen which says "Welcome" below it English/India.
I understand that due to covid your service centres might be suspended.
But I live in DELHI and My Parents in FARIDABAD, HARYANA. I dont have any another phone.
what am I supposed to do?

Kindly help.
