    Transformer won't charge!

    I bought my niece a Transformer and she's telling me it won't charge now. I'm not that familiar with it so I don't know if she has hooked something up wrong or what the deal is. Anyway, she is in Ireland and I'm here in the states. Their current there in Ireland is 220 and I don't know if she is using a transformer or doesn't need one as most computers are set up to work on 120 or 220 I think. Has anyone had this problem of the tablet not charging? Thanks

    Was it charging before? Check to make sure the adaptor isn't broken or that she isn't using a different usb adaptor. Seems the trasnsformer needs higher voltages than the normal ones provide.

    Yeah, it was fine before. She found out that the plug adapter was not working. Thanks for answering! Salamat po.

    Have her try sticking the plug (power brick) in a zippy bag and put it in the freezer for about an hour. No, I am not joking! And welcome to the forum. This fix has been known to reset a switch inside.

    Try what he said. There's apparently some sort of thermal safety in it, and i've noticed it gets disturbingly hot compared to my other adapter. It's higher than normal voltage on top of charging two large batteries after all.

    I wonder if someone did a teardown on the asus adapter
