    where to buy a charger

    Hey guys , evidently the transformer I bought for my dad went dead. He lives about 30 miles from me so I can't just pop over and see what's wrong. He said there is no light when charger is plugged in. It will not cut on after charging all night. I had him do the power and volume procedure. No Go. It sounds like it's dead, but possibly just a bad charger. Does anyplace sell a charger separately ???? My last resort is dealing with Asus as I am past the 14 day period best buy accepts returns. And my hope is just a bad charger. I also had him check the contacts for misalignment. But he said they all look good and straight

    EDIT : Was I correct in understanding the pad will trickle charge from a pc ? I will be trying to troubleshoot tomorrow night

    There is a trick about taking the cover to the charger off and spreading the prongs slightly. I've got to cut out or I would hunt and post a link for you but its here in the forum somewhere and works very nicely for people who thought there units were dead.

    Office Depot has the chargers, keyboards, and sleeves in the store.

    Hey Squirrel. Before you spring for a new charger have your dad try this trick. It worked for me. It appeared that my charger was dead.....very much like what your father has described. I put my charger, without the cable, into a ziplock plastic bag. Put the plastic bag in the freezer before I went to bed. Took it out the next morning and it worked perfectly. That was three weeks ago.....no problems since then. Certainly worth a try! Good luck. And yeah, your dad will probably think your nuts. But maybe that's why you have the Squirrel moniker!

    Here is an entire thread dedicated to dead chargers: http://www.transformerforums.com/for...ight=wall+wart

    Lots of tips and tricks in there to test out.

    I have heard CompUSA (TigerDirect) has them in stock, and some Best Buys also have them.
