The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is an android tablet that was announced and launched in 2011. It features a 10.1 inch IPS multi-touch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800. The 5 megapixel camera with high definition video recording makes it a complete device. The Asus Eee Pad Transformer is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 SoC and 1 GB RAM which is comparable to most high end tablet PCs and netbooks.
It also comes with an optional docking keyboard. The docking keyboard features a track pad, QWERTY keys, SD card reader and USB 2.0 ports. It also has an additional battery that increases that battery life to 16 hours.
Originally, the transformer runs a modified version of Honeycomb. However, it has been updated to Android 4.0.3, popularly known as Ice Cream Sandwich. It has received a number of successful updates that made the tablet operate smoother and more user-friendly. This gadget has an ultra thin design that will let you play and work at the same time. Using it for long periods at a time makes the device prone to wear and tear thus increasing the demand for quality Eee Pad Transformer repair.
Top 5 Eee Pad Transformer Problems We’ve Seen
Despite all the good specification of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, it has claimed a number of complaints from users just like other high-tech gadgets. A number of technical problems have been recorded since the release of the device that made users frustrated and regret purchasing such. Fortunately, these technical problems can be resolved with our years of experience and on-hand replacement parts. Some of the most common problems noted in the transformer are keyboard related, dead pixels, Bluetooth related, and backlight bleed issues.
There are times when you lose control of your hands and accidentally drop your device. This may not be entirely your fault, but it still leaves you with the responsibility to fix it. The most common result of dropping your Asus Eee Pad Transformer is a cracked screen. You may just want to evade this problem, but it is impossible to enjoy your device when a small or large crack is visible.

One problem about the keyboard of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer is its inability to use the QWERTY layout. These are often experienced by users who have undergone an update of their firmware. Another problem related to the keyboard is the random language setting. Some users complain that after updating their device, their language settings are of another language, making it more difficult for them to use their device. These problems could be due to a number of factors such as a malfunction on the keyboard itself which can be replaced or fixed.
- Language setting set in another language
- Inability to use QWERTY
- Missing accentuated letters
Some users complain about their device’s inability to transfer from files to another device. This may be a big problem especially if you are transferring a very important file from work. One of the main reasons why users purchase a tablet is to allow them to work even when outside the premises of their houses. If the Bluetooth does not work, then it defies that purposes of the device, the very reason why some people bought them. Bluetooth problems can be caused by a faulty bluetooth hardware or the software that controls it.

Backlight Bleed Issues
Purchasing devices should not be taken for granted. Most if not all people want their devices to be perfectly healthy in order to make the most of their applications and functions. Even the slightest backlight bleed issues should not be set aside just because it does not affect the usability of your phone. Black bleed issues are often caused by too tight screws that hold the LCDs.
- Specks of light when device is run on a black screen
- Specks of light even when device is run on normal lighting conditions
Dead pixels are black or white spots found clearly on the screen. Although this may seem like a small problem, it still affects the overall display and even usability of your phone when reading articles in white background. The real problem with dead pixels is that you cannot return your device for warranty unless you have three.
