Thanks for this guide. I managed to change the port and that fixed my Transformer. I had some difficulty(my fingers are not nimble) so I had to cut away the metal bar to get the panel beneath the white flap.

So my tablet will not hold a charge, but will work on the charger. I also have the separate keyboard/docking station and it will not hold a charge. Does this mean both of my tablet and my docking station need a new charge port or does the table charge the docking station and it is just bad. Both come on when physically plugged into the usb charger.
