I used the HP charger and it warmed up like usual the first couple of hours.  I also used another charger (from a bluetooth headset)  that works to charge the TP.  I also left the TP plugged to the USB port of my PC.

 

I tried pushing the buttons numerous times, but the TP is still not powering on.

 

The TP was just sitting overnight, with about 25% charge. It was NOT on airplane mode.  It likely drained the battery overnight.

 

*sigh*

Re: my hp touchpad will not turn on

Well sorry i can't help u no more. An option: put it on ebay and sell it for spare parts. Screens and frames brakes constantly. Im pretty sure u will get some $ back from your investment at least, especially If u bought it at fire sale.:-)

Actually, I called HP/Palm Support.  After going through diagnosing the problem and determined that it must be a hardware issue, HP is taking it back for repairs.  If it cannot be repaired, a replacement will be issues.  It was actually a phone call that was easy and close to painless!  No waiting, and rep was easy to work with.

Re: my hp touchpad will not turn on

I have read through all of the posts, tried the recommendations, but my TouchPad still won't turn on.  All I see is a white blinking light (blinks left / blinks right) on the button that is at the bottom of the screen, just above where the cord plugs in.  Any ideas?

Re: my hp touchpad will not turn on

I got my TP back....well, actually a refurb one.  I don't think HP repaired (or will repair) the broken one that I sent.

So, I'm back!

Re: my hp touchpad will not turn on

My Touchpad died.  I have tried different chargers and USB cables. I have tried booting it up holding different key sequences (power - volume up - home buttons).   All without any luck.   So I went to the HP website for the Touchpad and chatted with a tech.   They ended up issuing a repair ticket - no fuss no muss.   Looking forward to gettting a refurb replacement in a week or so.

I tried to hold the silver button at top and the black button, several times, but it does not work.
