    Exclamation Help Stuck in Safe Mode

    Hi,
    I was travelling and put my TF in the hand bag. When i took it back out i noticed that the volume rocker had gotten a bit dented and the down part was stuck and only the up part worked. Also there was screen with text on the top left saying volume up to wipe and volume down to skip. Since I didnt have a choice i pressed up. Now it has loaded in safe mode (which it says in bottom left of screen) and npw not only can i not install any apps... It wont charge either
    Any help would be deeply appreciated!!
    Also when i try to charge via usb it recognizes the device but wont charge

    Welcome to the forum!!! What you did is boot into recovery and wiped the data on your TF. Then when it rebooted it went into safe mode. To get into safe mode and recovery on the TF it requires the use of the volume down button while powering up. Sounds like the volume rocker is stuck in the down position causing it to reboot into recovery or safe mode. Trying powering down and play with the volume rocker a bit to see if you can get it unstuck before powering back up. Unless you can do this it will keep booting into safe mode or recovery. If so you may want to consider calling Asus for a repair.

    This may or not help, but my wife was having the same issue. After a few days of pulling my hair out I realized that her after-market case for the tablet was pressing on the volume button with one of the elastic straps and causing the machine to start in safe mode.
