    Exclamation Help please! Og transformer not charging

    TF101 was working fine last night. Then I plugged it into wall charger and nothing happened. This morning, with dead OG Transformer, plugged in dead battery symbol came up then goes back off. Same thing with usb in CPU. I tried the prong tricj and the freezer trick. Any1 have this problem that figured it out? Will a new wall charger work? Dont want to have to buy dock and I have no warrenty. Again, PLEASE HELP! THANK U

    Try the cold boot procedure just in case it helps - USB via PC charges 3% per hour with the screen off.

    Have you tried it?? It might reset your tablet since your battery should have some charge in it, otherwise USB to your PC for a few hours and see if that gives you enough juice to try a cold boot.

    You can try the other suggestion Swipe had,
    Try charging it with the usb and a PC/Laptop.
    It will help narrow it down, if it charges, then it's the charger.
    If not that leaves the cable or Transformer

    Even without a warranty you can carry it into Office Depot and ask to try their charger, if it works, they sell the chargers there.

    >>EDIT<<
    Sorry just realized your were in Canada, perhaps a retailer there will let you try their charger

    Reverse/swap the way you plug it into the wall socket.
