    Welcome to the forum

    From what you say, you look to have done all you can. We do have a guide thread on batteries & charging which links to various resources (linked from the Master Help Guide in my signature), but from the sound of it I don't know what else you - or anyone else who doesn't have access to a wide range of parts to swap in & out could try.

    A local (to you) electronics expert might help you out, perhaps?

    All the best & sorry I can't be of more help.

    PLEASE Search for existing threads before posting a new one. Thanks.

    Your opinion matters. But should you disagree - please try not to be disagreeable

    one of the things to check is that the 'new' charger is a genuine asus charger and cable. it does make a difference. ebay stuff is really chancy

    I have this tablet and love it. Today, though, it didn't charge. I was frantic and did a lot of researching and a bit of experimenting/closer observing. The tablet didn't charge (albeit minimally) with a different adapter either, therefore, probably not an adapter problem. The tablet certainly worked, and it's "pins" looked straight and unmuddled. So, I wondered about the cable. I have ordered two "new" ones, but then I read a thread that suggested checking the usb connecter. I did, shifted the interior piece of the usb connector a bit. The tablet began to charge. Yippee! And I'll have two new cables--all right in itself! Hope this helps.

    One of the problems and I'm not sure it stil exisits is the the graphics on the wallwart & the cable are backwards from what we usually see on USB connections. It is possible to put the cable into the walwart backwards an then it won't charge. Once you put it in the wrong way it and then put it in the right way it will work intermittenty or not at all. This is because the pins in the wallwart have been crushed slightly. In order to fix these pins need to be adjusted.
