    Charger cord is not working

    About two weeks ago the charger cord that came with my tablet suddenly stop working. I also have the keyboard and it won't charge that either. Then about three days later it started charging and then it stopped working... So I went ahead and went to Office Depot to see if they had chargers (they didn't) yet the computer clerk said it sounded like it was just the cord and not the actual prong adapter.... I ended up ordering a new cord and that is not doing the trick.... My question is if anyone has had this issue and if I should order a whole new charger or just the adapter thing... I have only had the tablet for a little over 6 months. And where is a good place to order it from or is amazon fine.
    Thanks.

    I got an extra cord and charger from caseen which is a vendor that supports the forum. Its an Asus charger. I also got the network dock, which I love as a nightstand dock. Any charger can go bad, but I prefer to use the OEM vice aftermarket. Others may say the aftermarket chargers are just as good. The aftermarket chargers I have seen have the cord permanently attached which I see as a downside if you need a data cable.

    If you just purchased the unit 6 months ago it should still be under warranty? Are you located in the US? If so I can possibly help you. Go ahead and send me an email at cl-fred@asus.com

    Hi - im just jumping on board this post as it mentions "charger". I have just bought a tf300t which is on it's way - but minus the charger. PLease could you tell me whether just buying the usb charger/data cable is okay and whether i can just plug this into my s3 usb power plug or my htc usb power plug to charge the dock and tablet? or do I need ot actually buy a proper plug as they seem to sell on amazon?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Welcome to the forum Paul

    In the Master Help Guide (see link in signature) you will find a definitive guide thread on the subject of batteries / charging on Asus tablets including the Transformer range.

    Have a look at that as you will see that the TF charger is pretty unique & while other chargers will charge - they will take a long time (maybe a very long time ) to do it.

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

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