    Keyboard Dock Not Charging

    Hello.

    Overall, I've been very impressed and very happy with my transformer. One thing that's happened though, it seems, is that my keyboard dock for the TF101 doesn't seem to be being charged when I plug it in. Even if I have the TF101 attached -- the tablet will charge up when attached to the keyboard, but the keyboard never will. In fact, the tablet will charge all the way up and the keyboard unit it never gets past flashing red status (on the charging l.e.d.). It used to work fine! I got them about 2 months ago now ... this is in the last 2 or 3 weeks.

    Anybody else have that problem?

    I remember seeing somewhere, someone said something about them hoping for a hardware update to fix a "power settings" issue??? Ring any bells?????

    Thanks,
    Setherson

    If you got them about 2 months ago, I am sure there is a power drain issue with your dock (See this thread for details: http://www.transformerforums.com/for...-solution.html)

    Also, if the dock gets to a 0% charge state, it may not want to recharge. Check the dock battery level with the Dual Battery Widget from the market.

    I had my dock go to 0% over the weekend, but luckilly it recharged without any issues. If it does get to 0% and will not take a charge, it will need to be RMA'd to ASUS. Also, if you have the power drain issue listed above, you will also need to RMA to ASUS as it is a hardware fix, not a firmware or software fix.

    My dock does not hold a 8-9hr charge as advertised. 2-3 if that.

    ASUS just sent me an RMA to have it serviced or replaced I guess?

    If you are actually only getting 2 hours of use on a full charge (per the battery level widget reading), you likely need them to either replace the battery or replace the tablet itself.

    I had a very similar problem when I bought mine a couple of months ago. Took in back to BB after a couple of days and swapped it for a new one, and am getting 15+ hours of electric goodness.
