ANY posted HP phone number you find online is likely either a straight up scam or the number has been hijacked (for the same evil purpose).

 

HP does not open cases via Email.

 

Reminder

Case submission is primarily directed at those whose devices are still in Warranty.

For the rest of us, this is not an option.

HP Support does not generally provide free service for out-of-warranty devices.

Our Community is not HP Support; we do offer help free of charge:

HP Support does not publicly post contact numbers.  Please submit your case online

 

  • Provide required Information > Explain the problem > Submit the case
  • After the case is submitted, Contact information for your area will be displayed on your screen
  • Reminder:  Wait times can be long – HP Response centers are very busy.

 

 

  • Use Device Serial Number to submit the case (do not post private information on the Community).
  • Chat is not available in every region.  In those areas where Chat is an option, Chat service hours are likely restricted.
  • Consider using HP on Facebook.
  • HP will advise you when there is a fee for phone support and / or other services when your computer / device is no longer in warranty.  This is normal business practice.

  • HP websites are the only sites allowed to use the HP copyright  ® circle/logo.  Look for the copyright on any website claiming to be HP. If in doubt, scroll to the bottom of the Website to find HP copyright logo.  Still in doubt?  Stay away from the site.
