    When you First open the sealed Box, is the tablet turn on or turn off?

    Hi everyone, I recently brought the Asus Transformer Prime.

    The Box was sealed and everything, but when I open the box, the Sticker on the tablet fell off.

    And when I press the power button with 1 click. the Tablet turns on. Then I read the instructions, the tablet should have been turned off?

    My question is, when you first take the tablet out of the box, is it turned on or off.


    Thank you,

    Welcome to the forum, check the battery stats in Settings > About Tablet > Battery

    See if you turned it on yourself getting it out of the box, or if it had been on for a few hours / days - it will tell you how long on battery it has been.

    Set the tablet up the way you want it, then when you are at your homescreen click on the Apps Draw top right, then Settings > About Tablet > Battery Usage


    The above may be different if you are running ICS already

    y question is, when you first take the tablet out of the box, is it turned on or off.


    Thank you,

    Was your first touch of the tablet a short press of the power button? and did it vibrate.

    Also you mentioned that when you opened the prime the sticker fell off, would I be right thinking this is the large oblong sticker to the right of the trackpad? or the sticker that is on the cellophane wrapper (see next paragraph)

    Was the prime sealed in a see through plastic cover that you needed to peel of? have a look at this particularly at 1.45.

    Also was there a plug in the charging socket at the bottom and are there two rubber bungs in the docking ports at the bottom ad another bung inn the usb port of the docking station (if you have that).

    Also does the power supply have a cellophane wrapper around the body of the charger and also around the plug that attaches to the prime?

    Don't jump the gun on the return until you find out what the battery status is, then try registering it with ASUS to see if the SN has been used, then see if there are any problems with it.

    Thank you,

    I received my Transformer Prime today, and it would not turn on until the battery charged for a while. Even when connected to power, it would not intitalize until the battery developed a charge reserve. Once the battery received a charge, it fired up and booted into the initial setup. I had an initial problem connecting to my router, but persistance brought success. The tablet informed me of pending updates which downloaded successfully and now running ICS, which is sweet. I proceeded to put both my WIFI and GPS through its paces indoors. The sensitivity of both the WIFI and GPS appears to be on par with my Acer A500, both at home and in my shop.

    It's quite possible that some Prime's have been boxed while they are turned on, causing those 'cannot turn on' issues that some people are experiencing. Once the battery runs entirely dry the device shuts down and battery can drain even further while it is stored that way, making it difficult to boot up. You -might- have gotten a Prime that has not had that happened yet.

    But yes, as others have suggested, look at other things to make sure you didn't get a used Prime. But if everything looks alright, the device was in proper plastic and there were no fingerprints or whatnot anywhere, then you're likely just another example of bad quality control of ASUS.
