Good evening, kind folks! Found this forum after searching until my eyes bleed for some help online. A noob I am, but would buy a six-pack and be Forever Grateful for someone to help this old lady out!

Own a used TF201 Prime. Not experienced with Android, other than using my tablet over 2 years. Things have been great, no probs.

Plugged it in to recharge this afternoon, came back about 3 hours later and found my kitty sitting on the tablet (which was on the table). The tablet was very warm. I unplugged & put it on our tile floor (cold because of A/Conditioning) to cool off. Once cool it was still stuck at the browser screen I must have been looking at when I plugged it in to charge.

So I tried to reboot by using PWR + VOLDwn buttons but... it's getting no further than the ASUS screen with the spinning circle in the middle below "ASUS." Am so confused by things I saw here tonight already on this forum; I have no idea what to try or to do.

Can anyone help me out??

Which Way to Go First?
Am hoping Someone will take pity on this 60-yr-old lady and help!

I see all over the forums where there's overheating problems when charging. Don't know if this is what happened or not.

Am not afraid to try some things myself before I call Asus. Would love to resolve this on my own, and Learn Something!

Can anyone give me some direction??

Ok, If you cant get to the bootloader screen, there is not much that can be done..

You can try the reset button about 3 or 4 cm down from your sd card there is a pin hole...

Push this while stuck in bootloop..

Let me know thx Josh

Used a paper clip, pushed into the hold while the logo was spinning.

It started over again, with ASUS in the center and the NVIDIA logo in the bottom right. But nothing beyond that this time

My previous problem was one step beyond, the 'spinning logo' had appeared and was stuck there... This doesn't look good, does it? THANK YOU!

OK, tried the paperclip in the hole again... Prime restarted, and is now stuck at the familiar ASUS logo in middle of the screen with the spinner below it... darn it!

I can get to the bootloader screen. Selecting the first icon leaves me a dead android with a red triangle.

Selecting the android guy (cold boot) icon gives me the ASUS screen with the spinning logo

Selecting wipe data gives me "booting recovery kernal image signature match", then an upright android guy with spinning insides that defaults to the ASUS logo w/NVIDIA in bottom corner, then ASUS screen with the spinning logo

??? Thanks for your time!
