    Problem turning on Asus tablet

    I have had my tablet for two months. It has a full charge but will not turn on. Small light by"on" button is on but nothing happens when I press it to turn on. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to the forum!

    I have 2 suggestions:

    Long press (30 seconds) the power button
    Use a paperclip and press the reset button on the left side.

    Happened to us too quite recently. The tablet and keyboard were both fully charged but it refused to switch on, and it didn't kae any difference whether separated or docked.

    My wife held the power button down for 10 minutes and suddenly it just kicked into life. I did a post on this in last few days.

    I've kept a note of what other forum members have suggested in case it happens again.

    Leeshor thinks like I do that this was a software glitch not a hardware issue. My suggestion is always only download apps one at a time and fully switch off and on in between downloads. This would hopefully help pinpoint an app that might be causing a problem but there are potentially combinations of apps that might cause such a glitch.

    I'm running the power off & lock app and the auto airplane app, either of which might have been the cause, who knows.

    Hope you get your TF201 back on line!

    After running it dry on Sunday, I went to charge my TF300 (had it for 9 months), and the green light on the keyboard goes on, but the green light on the tablet does not.
    I tried plugging it in directly, not charging. I hit the connector with compressed air, no change.
    Worked find all last week.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Some have reported that completely draining your battery causes problems getting it to recharge. You might try charging via the USB cable to your PC. Charges very slowly, about 3% an hour via that method. After a few hours you can try the Asus wall plug again. Leave the PC on and turn off the Transformer while USB charging.


    ALSO - see the Battery Use Guide, linked below in my signature. It covers what to do when you are in that situation. There is a lot of information in that thread.
