    Hi,

    I just got a touchpad (again since I had to return my ol k e to best buy to get full price refund. I am noticed pretty fast the the volume of the touchpad keeps going down by itself and even though its fully down obviously the volume popup will appear randomly. This sucks and want to know if anyone has had this problem and if there is a fix. Such bad luck I've had searching for a touchpad that when I get one. It has something wrong. Any help would be appreciated.
    thx

    Mine was doing the same. I think a flash by WebOS Dr fixed the issue.

    the problem is that the volume goes down...as if you were pressing the volume button down..the volume popup will appear and the volume will start going down...I will try to reinstall..do patches and sed what happens..if it doesn't work..I'm screwed

    for me running certain apps seems to reset my volume back to "middle" setting, could be an app doing it rather than webOS.

    this is happening to me and its really annoying. it shows the volume pop up even if the volume is zero.

    mine has a broken volume down button. It's was stucked right out of the box. Unfortunately I can't have it replaced since I live outside the US and bought it from Amazon - it would cost me more to ship it back to them.

    Every time I tap the right bezel of the screen, near the volume rocker, the volume will go down by itself. I think the volume cords are grounded inside or something. I just adjust the volume using the software slider.

    My only hope is if there would be a preware patch to disable the hardware buttons.

    One question though... Is the volume down needed when doing a hard reset or when porting to Android (even maybe Windows 8?) I hope not.

    I use Touch Vol on my launcher bar and never the hardware rocker.

    I have this issue, and it is mechanical. I first noticed it a few days after buying an official HP rubber standup skin thingy (case, whatever they call it). I have since cut away the case around the volume and power buttons, to no avail. I now run most the time with sound turned off. At HP's request, I reloaded 3.0.4 using webosdoctor. Bullsh*t smoke screen by HP. No change. I noticed it happening when I first would pick up the device from a table top, especially with the case on. Before buying the case, I always handled the device with 2 hands on the edges. With the case, I felt free to pick it up one handed. If I pick it up by the corner near the volume rocker, the volume goes down automatically. I have found no correlation to the touchvol app or increase max vol (lite or full) patch, YMMV
