    Angry TF201T won't start

    Ok, this is my daughter's tablet. We both got tablets back in January. Her tablet was a used one and I bought a new TF700T with keyboard. She mentioned to me that she has lately had trouble turning on her tablet but now the tablet will not turn on. I just recently sent my TF700T with the same issue. I have tried all the quick fixes that have been mentioned (hard boot, soft boot, charging etc.) and no avail. I have also read about the so called hard sleep syndrome. I am totally disappointed with the numerous issues that ASUS seems to have and no real remedy for them other than box it up and send back in.

    What I have noticed though is when I do the hard reset (pin in the hole) and push till it clicks I can see her screen flicker every once in a while. I have no idea what version she is on since it is her tablet and being 13 I doubt she would have even paid attention to such things.

    Thoughts-suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If I can get both of these back up and running I am like through with ASSU.

    Thanks in advance with with help.

    The pinhole is not really a hard reset. I do have a link below that explains how to do a hard reset. Read through to the bottom of that section for a change that was made in 4.2. One thing you did not mention, is trying to use the charging cable to plug into a running PC for about 5 hours. Then try the hard reset. All the pinhole does is restart the tablet in the case that it froze up. That's not your problem.
