ASUS memopad 10 ME102A won't charge unless it's off


i'm new to this forum and must apologize for my bad english in advance.

My friends Asus memopad had a broken USB connector and he asked me to replace it, so i did, using a SMD hot air gun and soldering paste.

everything went smooth and nothing was damaged on the motherboard after the repair...but here is my problem :

The tablet will only charge when it is off.

it does not recognize the charger when it is put on, nor will it connect to the computer.

I guess that there is a chance that the old broken usb port had some pins inside that was short circuited and destroyed some IC.

but does anyone here have any suggestion on where to start looking? I have tested with several chargers and cables..

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Christian,

Chances are the connectors on the mainboard which are the screen connection the lock-in tabs have been damaged and the pins in it are shorting. I have the same issue with a friend's ME102A presently.

Hate to say these connectors require a certain type of soldering device which are very expensive.

The only resolve is to try and source a replacement mainboard. This endeavour I am trying to do now ( I have had the machine for near a month & this is first time I have had to get near it)!

Hope this helps,
