    TF101 will not unlock unless plugged into wall

    Hello folks. I've recently had some trouble with my TF101. When trying to unlock my tablet, either by itself or connected to the keyboard dock, the screen flashes on then off again. The only way to solve this that I have found is to plug the charger in (again as a tablet or keyboard attached). Does anyone know what is going on and/or how I can fix this myself?

    Edit: just adding that factory reset and cold boot do not fix my problem

    Welcome to the forum!

    That is quite strange.

    I would try flashing the stock firmware again.

    Download the correct firmware from ASUS, (links are in the forum favorites link in my signature). Extract the first file to the root of a MicroSD card or place it in the /sdcard/ directory. Insert the card in the TF, power down then back up. The TF should find the firmware and update. Make certain you are using the firmware specific to your location and device. Your MicroSD card will need to be formatted as FAT32

    OK. I just tried that and still having the same issue . Is there anything else I can try before assuming it is a hardware issue?
