If none of listed above works. Take a flash light and look into your Micro USB power jack (as well as the charger), check if all the pins are in place and don't show any signs of deformation, or damage. If one or more of them are out of place - that could be the reason your device doesn't charge.

If applicable - try propping it with something sharp and thin, like a needle. Also check our Troubleshooting page for more solutions. If all else fails - check Power Jack Replacement Guide.

I am a hardware engineer and have worked on mainboards for a number of systems from IBM, Toshiba and HP.

Sometimes what happens is that the pins on the usb or charging connector become loosened or no longer relay the signals as they should. Sometimes they simply peel off or break away. Many times the inside component portion that is soldered to the mainboard takes a beating from repeated heavy use and becomes dislodged due to a poor soldering joint. This is a result of jarring or improper plugging in of the charging or usb cable. Internally, the component is sometimes just not very secure and can be damaged.

Other times I have noticed the charging circuit is worn out due to a failing capacitor.

Most often than not, it is simply a charging cable or power adapter issue. Many of the cables that come from manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers are not built properly for frequent use nor do they carry sufficient current to enable the devices [charging msg] to appear. There can be intermittent breaks or simply poor conductivity within many cables. Many of the apple users notice this if they buy a .99 cent charging cable and usb power port. I always get quality aftermarket charging units and cables to replace the ones I get with my devices.

'''So, the least effort in fixing any no-charge situation is to try a know-good cable and a known-good usb port/wall wart.

'''

some of these (on some models) are not end-user replaceable or serviceable due to the extremely small footprint of the components. There simply isn't enough room to work without too much risk to other components. So most likely unless you have plenty of time, patience and the right tools, leave this fix to others. You can try a diy fix, but it's usually best to send off to an electronics geek, small repair shop or electronics technicians that can check or replace them because they have tools to handle such small components.

Additionally, my cousins have two Asus tablets and the battery lifespan on the built in Li-Ion battery packs were very poor; lasting only 5 months.

I hope this is not too discouraging. If something is in warranty, always try that route first. Otherwise if you know you are "stuck" with a "dead" or nearly dead device, then don't hesitate to try to repair it yourself or through small fix it shops that are qualified to do so. Replacement on the component level is dirt cheap and usually you can install better components. Mainboard or whole circuits cost more but are usually ready to snap in and go with little effort.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU!
