    TF300 will not turn on!

    My TF300 is less than a month old, lightly used and now won't turn on. It worked fine yesterday, full charge. Now today, it won't turn on. I pluged it into the wall, still nothing. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

    I am new to tablets, are there any reset buttons or otherways to turn on? This is very disappointing, luckily I also took my laptop, so I am not completely dead in the water, hopefully it is still under warranty so I can get my $$ back. I an advertently originally postd in the TF101 thread, sorry. Thanks.

    Welcome

    1. Don't worry about the other thread, I deleted it
    2. Try a long press on the power button - up to 60 seconds until it boots
    3. Or try a cold boot - linked below
    4. Try charging from your PC or other 500mah usb charger overnight, before trying again (there's a thread that explains why, linked from FAQ & help)
    5. Try connecting to a tv via hdmi to check it isn't the screen that's not working. If it is the screen you should Factory Reset to protect your privacy & then return it.

    If none of that works, then you will have to return it.

    Hope one of them works for you

    i had the same problem not 30 minutes ago. i tried janner43's option 2, and after about a 30-second long press it turned on and seems to be working fine.

    (not sure if this has anything to do with it, but i had also just done a factory reset.)

    It turned on! but the batter was drained to 7%. Won't take a charge from the wall port. But when I connect to the PC I can see the device, but it is not taking a charge. is there something I need to do to make it charge from a PC? Thanks for the help!

    Only charge the tablet from the PC. It will only charge slowly at approx 2% per hour. You really need to do this with the tablet off & for 8 hours or so.

    If your tablet has 7% now, then it *should* charge from your wall charger. Have a read here & check through this guide too.

    If you still have problems or if you feel there is an underlying build quality issue, then you should Factory Reset to protect your privacy & then return it to your retailer for an exchange if that is possible. If not, I wouldn't RMA it to Asus just yet...
