I'm trying to figure this out, too. The route I'm thinking of taking involves the following three links. One shows how to open up the tablet, one shows how to replace the micro-usb port, and the third is a link to the correct part on eBay.

bubbiesmommie try this. Hold Windows key and tap x to get into device manager.

Click on batteries

Right click and delete the battery

Reboot, the system should "find" and "re-install" the battery.

Then plug it is and see if it charges.

If it does not, then you definitely want to try a new cable and a different charger. If even those things don't work, then you'll have to disassemble your T100 and take a look at the actual charging port and ensure that it is properly soldered on the board etc.

Use a magnifying glass and good light to look into the USB/charger port. Take a tooth pick and gently apply a small force to the center tab in the port. See if it freely moves. If it is not rigid it is busted. If it is busted be very careful about trying to follow the youtube instructions. Not all T100s are the same. In my case the screen and bezel are glued and the bezel is screwed to the base. And yes you guessed it, the screw heads face the screen. In this case if you try to pry the screen and bezel out you will crack the screen. The only way to get it apart is to heat the screen and separate it from the bezel first so you can get to the screws. And I am pretty sure that will fail. Some of these T100s were not meant to be taken apart. Thank You Asus for using a flimsy micro USB port to charge the tablet and also making the tablet that can not be serviced.

Had a similar situation myself. I opted to replace the port, & exact replicas are 5 for a couple $ on ebay. Since I don’t have a micro-soldering station (& I use the port only for charging), I broke off the pins used for data on the backside, then very carefully resoldered the port and 2 power pins back in their original position. Then just to add a bit of strength to it I put the board back in its casing, & added some hot glue over it. That was probably a bit overkill, but it was only my 2nd attempt to work on a Transformer MB. Note* Be extremely careful when attempting to remove the board from the casing. The flat orange cable (Main LCD connector?) has some very finicky little pins which will make all efforts to repair null & void if bent. All connections inside should removed with as little force as possible, & preferably done under some magnification.
