    Brand New TF201 not charging or turning on, HELP!

    Hi all,

    Purely joined this forum just to ask this question, seeing as I can't seem to find anyone else with this problem.

    I bought my TF201 today, 32 gig, with the docking keyboard. Brought it home and started charging it from the AC charger. It's been on for almost 3 hours now. Although, charging through the dock, I have noticed that the charging light has never once turned on.

    I just checked, and it still won't turn on at all after close to 3 hours. And yes, I know it's supposed to charge for 8 hours or more, but I just wanted some confirmation that my device was actually charging at all!

    I also tried the USB in my computer after about 2 hours on AC - the computer sounded as though it recognised the device was plugged in, but did not pop up with any notification, nor did the charging LED on the dock flash or turn on. The booklets in the box were very vague about charging, so I am just curious to know whether my tablet is charging at all. Please help!!

    Also, I apologise in advance if this question has already been asked and answered elsewhere, bit of a noob when it comes to online forums.

    Welcome to the forum!

    First, try another USB device on your ASUS wall wart (phone, etc). See if it will charge on that.

    Also, check the link in my signature for the forum favorites and there is a link for charging and boot issues with all of my tips and tricks.

    Moved to TF201 forum.

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I thought it could have been an issue with the wall wart, so the tablet has been charging for around 45 minutes from a USB travel charger I use often. However, there was still no light on the side of the dock, so now I'm just trying to charge the tablet directly seeing if that makes any difference.

    I tried an iPod touch in the TF201s wall wart, and sure enough, nothing. Also, the wall wart seems to come apart into the two pieces so easily, even when clicked together :/
