    TF201 won't turn-on after firmware update

    Hi, I have done firmware update recently (2 days back). After that my TF201 won't turn-on. It just struck on boot screen Asus Logo. I really don't know what to do. I have tried Power+Volumn but the result is same.

    Any other ways of turning my TF201 on?

    Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to the forum

    Try...
    1. A long press on the power button until the device reboots
    Or if that doesn't work, then
    2. Hold down the Power button and the Volume Up buttom, at the same time, for 10 - 12 seconds. The TF201 will shut itself off, screen will be black. After a minute, hold down the Power button and the Volume Down button, at the same time, for 10-12 seconds. The screen will come on about 30 sec after you release the buttons

    The only suggestion I can think of off the top of my head would be to download the firmware from ASUS and extract the first file to a FAT32 formatted microSD card and restart. Be certain to download the version that is for your country.

    This kind of brick with the JB update is new and there is no way to recover it. It is not stuck on the eeepad screen but on the asus splash screen so nothing can work because the pad cannot shut down, Letting the battery drain will not work either. Holding power plus volume up will shut the screen down and go into apx mode.

    Only asus can use apx mode on this brick so just call them and get an RMA asap. Good luck
