Thank God for this forum. I put a case on my TP today and after a few minutes it went into USB mode and wouldn't come out!!! After reading this forum thread, I was able to fix it...that HOLD CENTER BUTTON and ON/OFF together REALLY WORKS!!! After about thirty seconds, it rebooted and is back to normal...Thanks one and all for your assistance.

Thank you!! Worked for me!!

glad to find this - mine just went into USB mode after pairing it for the first time with my Palm Pre + - fortunately the two-button reset method worked -

anyone had that problem after bluetooth pairing?

thanks - jon

It happened when I received my HP TouchPad Case. I had it in the case and the volume would go up by it's self. I took it out of the case and it still would just increase the volume. On the fourth restart it went into USB Mode and that is all she wrote. The sad thing is that it was working like a charm before I put on the case. I assume that the volume up button is stuck. It doesn't feel stuck.

I tried to download the webOS Doctor on the Palm site, but it has some type of error and won't load. The worst part is the run around I am getting from HP. Now I am in limbo waiting to hear back on when I will receive a replacement.

I hope this doesn't happen to any of you.
I had the same issue. Holding the power button and the Home button simultaneously for about ten seconds, rebooted the TP in normal mode.

After being on hold 13mins with support only to be disconnected...this little magic trick worked. I was trying the power + volume keys, but now I know.

I had this same issue back in July. I spent over a week with HP trying to get my TouchPad out of the USB Screen. The ended up sending me another TouchPad. I'm sorry you all are going through this. I feel your pain.
