I need to try that out too.

Yep! One screw was completely out, the other was loose.

Thanks for the suggestion!

In the pictures you can see where it pops and the hinge came apart.

Thanks man, I heard a CLICK a couple days ago and playing around with the dock I found out that it was presenting this issue.

Then I did what you showed, and both screws were totally loose, tightened both again and Dock is back to 100% working state.

glad it has worked for everyone. I had 2 more docks come apart as well, so either that little old lady is doing all the screws or else they are machine tightened or someone is just plain lazy. there are some other more extreme fixes that requires compound in case anyone over tightened and ripped the threads,just pm me. also, I'm trying to find out which screw tightens the easel that the prime fixates in while opening/closing as mine has become a little too loose for comfort. I really wish this dock had the better counterweights that the original dock TF had. :-\

It is easily replicated when you push the hinge push the hinge to the bottom and while holding the back case.

The screws on your keyboard may be loose, if you pull up the back two rubber feet you will see the screws underneath, they sometimes come loose or come out all together, which is the problem I had, the rubber feet on my TF201 came off and a screw fell out. I was able to find an exact fit replacement feet and screws. I sell a repair kit for the Transformer line of tablet keyboards on eBay, Item Number: 171002444894, Seller ID is Wathnix2. The auction shows pictures of my keyboard after the repair.

Thanks for the plan! My TF is sooooo loose.. I don't want to have to by a new dock, so your kit will be helpful.

i have the same problem, i will try the fix

i think the tablet is well made with a good feel to it but the dock is kinda flimsy, i think they should have thought out the mechanism a bit more, it's just not suited for coping with all the forces of opening and closing when using like a netbook, they should have used more metal and thicker metal
