Plug your tablet in and hold the power and windows button (on the side, below the volume rocker) until the light on top flashes and turns off. Then, turn on your tablet and enjoy.

I have solved the problem. I bought a new mainboard (for the T100TA) via AliExpress and replaced the mainboard inside the Tablet using the guide on this website (Asus Transformer T100 Motherboard Replacement). I am now using the tablet for 2 Months and it works without a problem (even got Win10 on it).

i have this same problem after replacing the screen. all the connections are great and ive re-seated the screen, MB and battery connections a couple times but all i get is the back light and a white light flashes 4 times when i press the power button. no image, etc. anyone figure this out?

Update (10/25/2017)

UPDATE: so the most insane thing I've ever seen and experienced in my IT career - the tablet needs to have the back cover on it in order for it to work. In my case anyway. I left the back cover off cause i wanted to make sure it was going to work before i snapped the cover on. I had given up on getting this to work after replacing the screen and trying everything i saw on the web to get it to show something on the screen and i snapped the cover back on and on a whim pressed the power button and it came on! nuts crazy. works like new. and ASUS wanted me to send it in for a $350 repair. no sir.

Mine still won't turn on. It's been 2 weeks I've tried everything. Not spending $300+ for Asus to repair it either like they told me!!!

Help!

Mine would boot up, but wouldn’t show anything after I logged in, except a black screen. What seems to have worked (on two separate occasions) is holding the power button down for the 30 seconds while plugged in, which in my case turned it on and then turned it off; after that, I tried turning it on normally and it came up fine.
