Steve Scalph: Thanks a million. Corrected the problem immediately. I don't usually
unplug the USB connection, maybe that is why mine has worked just fine for
about 4 years. Like the ASUS. Thanks again.
Comicsnut J: I think my charging problem is with the port on the bottom on the tablet
Robert Miller: Thanks a million. I have been searching for an answer all over the internet

it still wont turn so hopefully this will work
Donovan Badenhorst: Awesome. thanks allot. I was about to purchase a new one. not needed
anymore. your a star!!!
PokerShark Backing: thx for the advice. I was desperated because the charger seemed
unrepairable (impossible to dissamble) but it was an easy fix and helped
(we will see how long it last but now it is working)
Courtney Liversedge: i connected the usb end of the cable into another charger (iphone) and it
still wont charge? it vibrates when i plug it in and then nothing happens
after that and ive left it to charge for a week and still it wont turn on!
i connected other cables into the charger i got with the tablet and it
works fine to charge things? might it just be my cable? thanks
DatMinecrafterFTW | Road To 100: Mine didn't have a USB i got the plain old charger :(

Craig Brown: Worked a treat - thanks for putting the video up.
Scott Nordlund: Worked awesome - I wish I found this earlier. Thanks much!!!!
Evie Harkness: Thanks heaps Nathan. Just tried yr fix and it seems to be recharging.
kylek29: This worked for me. Thanks for the tip. I had spent time experimenting with
the cable/charger to fix my no-charge issue.
I can sort of explain why it works. If you plug in just a standard USB
cable, it will output 5.2v on the rail. The charger uses the USB3's
additional row of connectors (behind the USB2's connectors in the plug) as
a sense contact to activate the 15v. Because of the design of the USB3
connectors, if the plug sags it'll lose connection.
Hence, when these tension pins get depressed over time, the rear (USB3)
pins don't get contacted and the charger never switches from 5.2v to 15v.
I assume it was designed this way to prevent users from plugging in a
cellphone/etc. (non USB3 items) and frying their devices.
Gomain Hoyes: ํYou saved me!. So many thanks.
Christian Garcia: worked thanks
Ingrid Susan Melaas: What about if I have one without the USB? Are there the prongs on the
inside of where you plug it in, as well?
Jeanie Futrelle: It's working! I actually went online to find out where to buy a new charger
because no one carries them because of some proprietary reason with asus.
Very aggravating! I came across the video and am so thankful!! Thanks for
saving me some $$$!
Tomasz Hołderny: Thank you. Worked perfectly.
Tanya Miller: You are awesome! I am traveling out of the U.S. and ran into this problem.
I was just about to attempt to find a replacement wall charger, and
cringing at the expected costs, when I decided to check YouTube. Your
solution worked perfectly!!! Merci beaucoup!
Protos Telos: Thanks Man! This worked perfectly.
Luke Vella: Thank you very much Nathan for posting this, fixed my charger and now I can
use my tablet. Your a champion, thanks mate.
Brandon Pollard: Thanks!!! That worked for me. Simple one-minute fix!
pc ladders: Thank you, I tried this as a last ditch move, as my charger lead stays
plugged in all the time, so I thought it must be at the Asus connector end.
But this did the trick :) I found a large sewing needle was the best, using
the blunt end for the most part, cheers
tioannid: Thank you very much! I wish the best for you.
Jacyntha Jackson: Woo thank so much man! This video triple thumbs up!
Highonlifenstuf: Wow. I love you! <3 Btw, I couldn't find a screwdriver small enough so I
took a sefetypin! This works but be carefll not to stick the point into
Again, I love you!
Jack Caldiero: Amazing dude, thank you. Bent the pins out and BAM...works fine. I worked
at Best Buy, we've exchanged so many units for this issue..incredible.
Ryan L: Also the charger charges my smartphone but it wont charge my table. do you
think that it could be the charger cable? And last night I used the tablet
till 14% then plugged it in, after I saw that the charging symbol showed
up. Then went to go to bed. Then when i woke up the tablet was dead. Also i
have my charger at a bad angle that is between my bed and my wall do you
think that i could have broken my charger?
Thatsnotmefool: Awesome! Fixed. Thanks mate!
Prettyampz: my transformer only charges when i shut down. it use to charge b4 even its
robertfc007: I have and Asus EEE Pad and had the same issue. Thanks so much. By the
way, instead of a screw driver you could also use the tip of sharp knife or
a sewing needle
Brenda Walker: Wonderful! Thank you so much. It worked like a champ but I don't understand
why. I tried plugging the cord part into my husband's plug part for his
tablet (Samsung) and it wouldn't charge. I know the cord is proprietary but
I would think the plug is just a plug with a USB port. Any thoughts?
Sue Kingham: Many, many thanks. I have been trying to buy a new charger and saw this and
it fixes it. Thanks for sharing your experience.
Ryan L: I cant see what you are doing with the screw driver and which side are the
prong things in the charger?
Daniel Farmer: Does this work for the Asus Transformer Book T100? The Windows 8.1 tablet?
pepeponpin: YOU ROCK! Thanks!
Steve: thanks for the help! I very much appreciate you taking the time to make
this video. :)
shamomma09: Wow!!!!n I had tried so many other suggestions and yours was right on
point!!!! Thanks so very much...you should see some of the crazy things out
there like put the box(powerplug) in the freezer to cool down the internal
circuits...smh!!! I love it...hahahahaha...thanks so very much!!!
Lucas Queiroz: works for me! thx!
Linda Alifano: When I first bought my Asus Tablet last month it would charge up just fine.
I had it on the charger for 6 hrs and the charge was only at 42%. Do you
think this simple fix would do the trick?
