    Hard or Easy Replacing Hard Drive in TF700 tablet?

    Asus wants $306 to replace hard drive.....I said no. Tablet went to sleep and won't wake up - tried everything I have read about on forum - still in coma. Found a good tablet with only screen damage for only $60 and I want to take from that one and use it to replace my hard drive. How hard is it to do?

    The problem is likely not the hard drive since it is just a flash storage memory chip. What Asus wants $300 for is to replace the complete motherboard which is the only way you can repair these tablets. However we have a few threads with information on replacing the tf700 motherboard or display. If you found another tf700 (can't be any other model) you would have two options. Replace the screen or transfer the motherboard.

    Thank you. I would have wanted to transfer the motherboard but looking on YouTube, I think I would have to disconnect too many things to replace the board.....so I guess it's not going to get repaired.

    YouTube us a good resource. Usually the most difficult thing is connecting the display and digitizer back up. It's been a while since I found anyone who got everything working but I know its possible. Just not simple.

    Buy the one for $60 and put your screen on it. The screen is much easier to replace than the mainboard...

    That is, if you're absolutely sure the one you have can't be fixed. Are you sure it is not stuck in APX? Exactly what led up to the problem? Have you tried hooking up an HDMI cable to a TV or such to see if there is video output to that jack? It's possible that you have a bad screen also. Or a funky power button, but that's usually the TF300, the 700 has a better switch. But it's still a mechanical switch and can wear out. Exactly what steps have you taken to troubleshoot it?

    Asus had my 700t for a couple of weeks, said it would cost $341 to fix (coma state), I refused repair and bought a 701t which I am fairly happy with. It's faster but the touch screen doesn't react as well as my old 700t did. Anyway, I'm happy and even bought an extended warranty so I'm set for a couple of years. Thank you for all the replies.
