    Tablet won't charge

    My son's tablet (battery) will not take a charge. What can he do? The Transformer is only 5 months old.

    Could be a bad cable a bad charger, etc.
    First thing to try put the charger in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer for a while. There is a overheat swicth that sometimes gets stuck in the charger, if that is the problem this should be a fix.
    Other wise call ASUS and ask for a RMA to get a new charger.
    Buy an new charger and see if it solves the problem, make sure that you purchase it from a retailer that will allow an easy return.
    In the mean time to prevent the TF battery from completly going dead turn off the TF and connect it to a standard USB charger. It will take at least 12 or more hours to get a full charge, so be patient.

    I thought you were kidding. My charger wouldn't work after having my TF300 for three weeks. I popped the cable in the freezer for 5 minutes and BINGO!

    There's a little gadget inside these things, that opens up if it gets too hot inside (to, hopefully, avoid starting an actual fire).

    Once in awhile, these thermal gadgets get stuck in the "off" mode-- and freezing them seems to resets whatever is keeping them open/off.

    It's amazing what freezing things can accomplish-- I've rescued (for one last image-catch) hard drives that refused to power up, by freezing them for several hours-- the cold gets their worn-out bearings loose enough for one last gasp.

    Same thing can happen with temperature-sensitive electronics.
