    Backlight only works

    Greetings - My transformer was working properly for about two years until the other day. When I press the power button, I can only see a very slight change in the screen...as if only the dark backlight is working. When I press the power button again the backlight goes away and appears to be off. I have attempted to hold the power button for a few seconds and I also have held the volume down button and the power button down for 30 seconds. Each time I only get the very slight change in background light. Any idea what I can do to fix this?

    Also, a problem I have had with the charger since I purchased this is the charger gets very hot when plugged in and charging. It will cool when the epad is fully charged.

    Thank you very much for you time!!!

    Welcome to the forum jazzbo22 ! You've come to the right place! Just to let you know - the stock Asus chargers are known to get very warm, partly because it outputs at a higher voltage when hooked up to your transformer.
    It is one one the fastest charges in the world of tablets. You might try to "turn the charger over" , that is - reverse the plug and see if that makes any difference. In addition, we have an extensive thread chock full of advice and fellow Transformer owners' experiences. The thread is linked below in my signature, "Battery Use Guide". Highly recommended.
