    [ Solved] Start up failure

    I have a transformer prime TF201 that will not complete start up.

    All I am getting is the start up screen. When I try to switch it off, it just restarts and gets no further than the start up screen again.

    How can I fix this or reset the tablet?

    Welcome to the forum.

    Have you used the reset (little hole on the right side of the tablet) function?

    If that doesn't work you could try a cold boot/hard reset.

    "Unplug the power cord and shut the unit off. Press and hold the VOL DOWN and then POWER button at the same time for at least 10-12 seconds until after the start-up screen appears and is joined by some small print at the top of the screen then let them both go. If the TF booted the way it always does, you have not accomplished the task,try again until you have seen the 2 icons in the screen.

    After a few seconds you should see a couple of shapes in the middle of the screen called "Wipe Data" and "Android". The right "Android" will have a green highlight fading in and out. Wait a few more seconds until the term "Cold Booting Linux" appears in the list near the top of the screens and let it reboot. If you own a keyboard dock be sure you do this with the dock connected.

    This applies to all TF models, however, if your Prime is locked up, there is a reset available using the hole just below the SD Card slot, this is NOT the same as a hard reset."

    Tried the reset button too, but still not getting past the initial start up screen.

    I will give the cold boot option a go

    Ok...have tried the cold booting. Got both icons up and cold booting linux, the tablet then went to the boot up screen and that is as far as it goes. I have the asus screen with the circle loading and nothing more.

    Any other ideas?

    The only other option is to factory reset it, it's one of the choices on the cold boot screen.

    ok....just tried that and got an upright green android with a blue line under that was working, then it switched to an android lying on its back with a red warning sign.

    I am guessing that this means I have a big problem ???

    Maybe, maybe not. Stick around, someone with more knowledge will more than likely have more advise for you.

    Moved to TF201 help.
