Asus wee slate b121 stuck in standby mode

It won't power down no matter how long I hold the power button. ( held it for five minutes.) The white light at the top and the green light at the side have been on for twelve hours.

    I solved this myself. There is a pin hole in the side of the unit for emergency shutoff. You use a paper clip to push it. If you ever need to hard-reset a Asus b121 slate, look for the reset hole near the ear phone jack

SOURCE: my asus notebook won't charge i

if it wont charge it most likely has a bad battery...if you just bought it, I would suggest returning it for a replacement. Make the vendor or manufacturer make good on their product.

SOURCE: Hi, I have an Asus

if nothing happens at all i would think the motherboard has died, if it has then there is nothing that can be done about it unless you take it to a computer repair shop and have see how much it will cost to get it repaired.
Leave it for a few minutes making sure the battery is out and the charger is out, then wait, plug everything back in and see if it turns on if it doesnt could be the charger is broke instead of the motherboard. try and use a different charger to be sure. Kronoguy

SOURCE: asus u52 shut down unexpectedly

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

SOURCE: the original battery for my Asus Eee PC 1005 PEB failed and the computer stopped working. I replaced the battery and the computer still won't come on.

The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

How do i reset my asus transformer tablet''i have a blank screen will not turn on

I had a similar problem with my Asus transformer TF101b tablet. First I charged the tablet for three hours. Then while it was still connected to the power source I held down the power button for about 30 seconds. Once I let up on the power button it took about five seconds and the tablet powered on. It took about two minutes for it to boot up and finally get to the home screen.

    ASUS T100 stuck at preparing automatic repair message will.not reboot

    Hello there, i just owned a brand new Asus T100 for 2 days and today on the 3rd day after purchasing, i faced problems during boot/start up where the laptop gets frozen on the Asus logo screen.
    I tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds and turned it on again. It ran a series of windows software updates before the start up, then after all software updates have been completed, the laptop resumed to freeze at the Asus logo screen again. I tried holding the power button for 10 secs followed by holding the power button and volume up button at the same time, to get into automatic repair/repair mode. THIS HELPS, get into the repair mode!

    To cut it short, i tried the other advanced options as well as the restart button in the repair mode but to no avail. After carefully reading the different options in the 'advanced options' in repair mode...
    Here's what worked for me:
    1) If you're stuck at the Asus logo screen which doesn't seem to boot for ages or at least 10 minutes, hold down the power button for 10 seconds and let the screen turn black. (I did this with my charger plugged in, not too sure if it matters)
    2) Count to 10 seconds. Switch the laptop on by HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON + VOLUME UP BUTTON at the same time. This will send the laptop into an 'automatic repair', followed by a 'diagnosing this PC' and after which you will see a blue screen which is the repair mode.
    3) On the blue screen you will see 2 buttons, 'Restart' and 'Advanced Options'. Click on 'Advanced Options'. (DO NOT CLICK RESTART, it does nothing as you will get stuck again at the logo screen)
    4) After clicking 'Advanced Options', click 'Advanced ....' (i forgot what exactly) and click 'STARTUP REPAIR'. This is the crucial part.Then follow whatever the system promts you.
    5) Afterwards, it will attempt to repair your system then lead you back to the logo screen for startup.
    6) Wait a few minutes and you should be able to get to your login screen as usual.

    Hope this helps. I chanced upon it by guessing which would actually help me.

    My washing machine would stop and beep and not advance to the next wash cycle and it was taking forever to fill up. I did the diagnostics and found it to be #49 which is a faulty hot or cold water valve. ...

    Sorry for the very much delayed response due to site changes which modified the notification system.

    Anyway, you should try holding first the WASH TEMP DOWN button then the POWER button until there's a beep. If it doesn't work, use WASH TEMP UP instead.

    Make sure the Restart feature is turned on and the Recycle feature is turned off if all else fails. During the diagnostic mode use the WATER LEVEL DOWN button to turn RESTART on by pressing the said button until the LOW WATER LEVEL LED turns on. Use the WATER LEVEL UP button to turn RECYCLE off. The MEDIUM WATER LEVEL LED off indicates RECYCLE OFF. To set these modes in EEPROM the Advance button must be held while selecting Restart or Recycle. Power off the machine thereafter to complete the reset.

    DVD player stuck in standby mode

    Bad caps in the power supply is causing this. C17 (10v,470uf), C17,c14 (10v,1000uf) and C18 (10v,470uf). Replace with same capacitance values but 25 volt rating 85 C. Just fixed mine half hour ago works great.
