this solution worked for me. thanks so much. my transformer is only a few hours old and it wouldnt charge. but all is well now. thanks again.Hi guys,
This is my first post on any forum and apologise if i am doing anything wrong.
I just wanted to let you know that i had fixed my charger problem by following these steps that i found on another site. I had tried all the other fixes mentioned to no avail..
Hope this helps.The following is from another forum...............
Hi ppl, I think this is probably one of my first posts on here but I wanted to share how helpful the above post was and add on to it with some pictures to help everybody in case this might be the issue with their chargers too. I had the same exact issue as several have mentioned in this thread so far. TF101 wouldn't charge and:
- I had the 0B-1LF charger base as well
- The USB cable connected fine to the unit and to my laptop (I could access the tablet from my PC)
I spoke with ASUS and they wanted me to pay to send the charger and USB cable to a warranty center, which I personally think is ridiculous for warranty work, so I dug a little deeper.
After guessing that it was probably the charger base and reading the above post, I decided to look inside the port where the USB cable plugs in. Here's what you see (just copy and paste and remove the space between http and ://, this forum has some pretty ridiculous newb rules. I'm not a spammer)
There are a bunch of gold prongs on the bottom, but on the top of the port (closest to the ASUS logo) are two larger silver metal prongs that hold the USB cable in tightly and press it against the gold ones below. You can see them pretty clearly in the picture above.
I used a thumb tack to gently pry them back downwards toward the gold prongs so that the USB cable would seat better. Problem solved!
It's worth a shot before you all spend a couple of bucks shipping something to their warranty center. Hope that helps everyone.
