OMEN Laptop - 15t-ek000 CTO

One key on my keyboard stopped working, I contacted support and they said they'd fix it. I wasn't able to go without my laptop (as I was at school) and I've been extremely busy. I have a week now where I don't need it, so I figured I'd send it in for repairs, I log in and it went out of warranty less than two weeks ago. (I was very much in warranty when it stopped working.) I have a case number and everything, but am unable to contact support due to "limited support options" and need to contact them ASAP so that I can have a working computer. I get that having direct free contact would be exhaustive, but I need to just contact someone there so they can send me the box they promised so that I can send it in for repairs, but right now there's no way to contact them.

I am sorry you are in this situation.

Sometimes waiting is all you can do but it can come back and bite later.

 

OK - I will forward a request for you to have the moderators review your post.

 

 

That said,

The request likely won't help you in the way you expect.

What?

Assuming an agent picks up your request in the next days,

Assuming HP accepts the request to add you to the queue,

One week is not enough time to get this resolved. 

Not even close.  Not at all.

 

It takes at least that long to get the information straightened out, the box sent out, the box picked up, and sent to a repair depot.  This part of the process could (will likely) take much longer.

 

Then the unit has to be fixed - and THAT depends on the depot having the right part "at hand".

Then the unit has to be checked, released for return, sent to shipping, shipped back to you.

 

Pre-Covid,

For a relatively simple repair,

If you contacted HP Support directly to open the case,

When depots frequently had the parts they needed,

Two weeks was an example of an average "turn around" time frame.

 

 

Now, Not-so-much.

 

Why would I say such things?

I am letting you know that there might be delays and the "simple" repair you envision might not be reality.

 

 

Request for Review

 

  • I have submitted a request that our Community moderators review your question / concern.

 

Worth Noting

  • Our Community is not an HP business group.
  • We are not HP Technical Support, nor are we HP Sales, Service, or Warranty.
  • 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. 

 

Important

  • 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.

HP Support - Technical Support for Devices in Warranty

 

Reminders

  • Case submission to HP Support is available to those whose devices registered and are still in Warranty.
  • Not every issue is covered under the standard Hardware Warranty.  Purchased Care Pack Warranties differ by contract.
  • HP is not a "general" repair facility: Requests for out-of-warranty repairs are generally not accepted.
  • If the problem is hardware, if your device is in Warranty, if your device is Registered, and you cannot submit your case to Support, let us know and we will forward a request.
  • HP Phone numbers you find on the Internet have likely been hijacked.

 

For the rest of us, case submission 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.

Hi, thanks for replying! Your information was very helpful! When I was in the chat with the service representative a few months ago, we went through all the steps to determine that it did have to get sent in, and they said it would be fully covered under the warranty with an approximated turnaround time of a week, but I do understand that things have gotten worse and because it's out of warranty now that the priority status might be moved down a bit. I might be able to get by depending on how long it will take, or I might just have to go back to using an external keyboard (which is suboptimal because of the need for mobility.)

 

No matter the outcome, thank you for taking the time to respond and help me with this!

You are welcome.

 

True an external keyboard is just one more thing to carry around - and it does increase the space required (work area) when you are using it.  

 

If your system supports Bluetooth...

I have an old Apple Bluetooth keyboard that I used to use on occasion when I wanted / needed an external keyboard but needed a "smaller" foot print.  Nice little keyboard - it was easier to tuck away in a side pocket of the computer sleeve than is my usual Logitech full size monster.  Didn't help for the execution, of course - still had to have extra work room.

 

Consider, too, the onscreen keyboard (OSK) for emergency use.  Not easy at first, practice does help.

 

Good Luck.
