    What would you do if you got a Touchpad and everything worked great except you noticed you can slide paper under the screen?

    <title updated> Sorry..but asking what people "would do with TP" as a title was asking for off-topic replies. lol

    And no... that's not normal for a screen. You can try contacting HP for repair and see if they can reseat the screen under warranty. Doubt they will offer a replacement anymore, unfortunately.

    Wow, that's tough. I'm sorry for your screen issues, however, I couldn't stop laughing at the picture. I'm pretty sure it's not normal though.

    It's a tough call; from posts in other threads, many people have had long waits on getting their TouchPads repaired & returned to them by HP. So you chance dealing with that if you want send it back.

    I would probably hold it for a while and if it gets any worse, send it in. It's covered under warranty for a year, so you have time if you need to get it fixed.

    It could go either way. Sometimes they repair the TouchPad you send them & return it back, other times they just send you a refurb. Maybe you can call them and see which one they would do for your repair.

    I definitely would rather have mine repaired than to get a refurb as well.

    I did tell them I dont want a referb and I was told if I choose the repair option they will fix mine. Yet the email I got from them mentioned a possible reburb per the warrentee policy.

    Fix it! just get a very fine brush, some gorilla super glue, put a very, very, small amount on there, press down, hold for awhile, bam you will be good.

    or i like the idea of get a case..

    A refurb is probably in much better shape than the junk he has. Any refurn tech prodyct i alwats got was like new.

    I'd probably send it back for repair or refurb. I think the product you get back will be good as new.

    This is why products come with a warranty. Use it.
