DatMinecrafterFTW | Road To 100: Mine didn't have a USB i got the plain old charger :(
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?
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.
Ryan L: I cant see what you are doing with the screw driver and which side are the
prong things in the charger?
Andrei Narkevitch: Thanks for a good hint, it worked!
Gordon Beveridge: Another endorsement, it worked perfectly for me and solved a very
frustrating problem. I also love my Transformer tab but had a problem with
the screen not working, fixed under warranty but apparently very common.
Christian Garcia: worked thanks
Protos Telos: Thanks Man! This worked perfectly.
Daniel Farmer: Does this work for the Asus Transformer Book T100? The Windows 8.1 tablet?
Jacyntha Jackson: Woo thank so much man! This video triple thumbs up!
DB Fuller: Saved me.
EN Ramos: I tried everything, cold boot, taking the charger apart, your fix was the
only thing that worked Nathan, great job!!
Lucas Queiroz: works for me! thx!
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?
Luis Reis: You, Sir, are the Best!! :) Thank you very much :) (btw, tf101g rocks ;) )
Sunny Flowers: Thank you, thank you, thank you. I've been without my tablet for two weeks
searching for a new adapter. This trick worked and it only took a couple
of minutes! You rock!

Randy Smith: Awesome - thanks!
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 $$$!
Jan Mulder: thanks it works
Jack Caldiero: Amazing dude, thank you. Bent the pins out and BAM...works fine. I worked

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!
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!!!

Thatsnotmefool: Awesome! Fixed. Thanks mate!
Rachel Hollar: Thanks!
Anub Philip: Fixed Mine !
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?
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
Xuedong Din: Working for me. Thanks,
Michael O'Fallon: Perfect. Solution worked immediately. Very simple fix with little
diagnosis. Thank you!
