I recently got my transformer+dock in the mail, and I had to charge it initially to use it, no biggie.
I upgraded the firmware to 3.2 and rooted it, and all of a sudden it doesn't seem to charge anymore. Since it worked a few hours prior, I didn't really think it was the wall wart at fault, but I tried the prong readjustment and freezer trick anyway, no dice.
Later on, I read somewhere that it might not be charging as a result of the 3.2 firmware, so I've been trying to downgrade ever since, but I can't even get that to work, the process keeps erroring out.
Does anyone know what I can do to get it charging again?
I have had issues charging since 3.2. If I pull the USB cord slightly out of the wall wart, it starts charging. Try this to see if it works.
Last ditch - CMR (Classic Mickey Reset) - Will not erase data.
Unplug the power cord and shut the unit off and Press and Hold the power button and the "Down" volume button together for 6-10 seconds and let them both go. After a few seconds you should see a couple of shapes in the middle of the screen called "Wipe Data" and "Android". Wait a few more seconds until the term "Cold Boot" appears in the list near the top of the screens and just press and release the "Down" volume button again and let it reboot. If you own the dock be sure and do this with the dock connected.
You hate to have to return everything if it's just a defective charger. But you may have to do just that. You want a Transformer that works! If Fred's Hard Reset doesn't work, maybe fiddle a little more with the charger. But if it continues to not charge I'd exchange it for another.
My charger did this exact same thing. I was plugging it into an extension cord-(power, not usb)- My computer recognized the cable so that wasn't the problem. I was lucky in that my daughter also has a TF tablet. I plugged her tablet into my power brick and it started to charge. It was also in a different outlet. When I plugged my tablet back into my power brick, it started charging again. Haven't had a problen since and that was a month ago. An I can use the extension cord without a problem.
