I plugged it into the charger that came with the tablet, and used the original connecting cable (as I have been since I got the tablet), but could not get led light on to indicate charging. I turned on the tablet to see if the power widget indicated it was charging, nope. So I figured, ok, maybe the cable was faulty, so I ordered a new one from Amazon, it arrived today, but it still doesn't charge. So does anyone know what is going on or do I have to ship it back to ASUS for repairs? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Try putting the charger in the freezer for a few minutes. I know it sounds silly, but the charger has an overtemp sensor for safety/user annoyance, and once it trips, it needs to be cooled down before it will work again. Worked for me a couple times. (seriously)
