Product: HP ProDesk 400 G4 Desktop Mini PC(4CZ90EA)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I have filed a claim with HP for issues with the unit's GPU since five months ago. The issue (no ability to display HDR content, despite having this ability mentioned in the product specifications) has been noticed by other users as well.
Whenver this issue was borught up on this platform, HP support employee has asked to find a soultion after discussing in private.
After five months of testing and being asked to wait, I have been informed that this techical probem is not to be solved with software intervention, and hardware replacement is simply too expensive.
As a consequence of the above, HP offered a buy-back . However, I do not have the POP (proof of Purchase), so customer support has just shut the door on me, claiming that they offer only this option.
Can you please explain:
- if this is a problem of production with all the 400 G4 units sold, why did HP not make a general callback or at least announce the issue ?
- How come HP can decide unilaterally to do a Buy-Back, even if I clearly explain that this is not what I wish ?
Looking forward to hearing from you.

We hear every day from customers that want (or demand) that we in some way intervene with HP Support.
As you know, we are a volunteer workforce - owners and users of HP devices and technology.
We have an indirect means to requesting review of those items for which we cannot offer any help.
Review is not automatic resolution nor is it a means of circumventing decisions made by HP.
That said, we can certainly forward a request for you.
Request for Review
- I have submitted a request that someone review your question / concern.
- Our Community is not HP Technical Support, nor are we HP Sales or HP Service.
- Our request for assistance on your behalf does not influence the outcome: Our request is not a magic back door into HP Support.
- The time frame (how long it takes) for a response is not controlled by the Community.
- If / When there is a response, a Community moderator / agent will (should) post back on this thread before using other methods to contact you.
Note to those reading:
- Do not contact random numbers posted in a public or private message by “new members”. Vermin are looking for victims – don’t be next.
- Please do not post any personal or case information here - we cannot make use of the data.
- Posting personal information at a public site increases your risk from rats and scammers.

@ Dragon Fur:
Thanks for your reply.
I am not making any claim from you, but actually wish to see that the way HP treats customers comes to light.
In this sense, I indend to disclose all corespondence with the HP support on multiple websites.
As the issue I faced is common to all units of this kind, I think it is important to add this to the known issues list for this unit.
With kind regards,

OK. I do understand.
What you are asking of us is sensitive in nature and we have limited options for response.
We are a public website and we adhere to HP Support Community: Rules of Participation
So far, so good, then.
Please await the possible response from an agent.

I see that this platform is actually lacking any support.
This was a bit to be expected sice you are dependent on HP for income.
Will address thia as well on other forums. Maybe there will be more actual interest of assistance.
Be alert for scammers posting fake support phone numbers and/or email addresses on the community.
If you think you have received a fake HP Support message, please report it to us by clicking on "Flag Post".
