I have a Touchpad that I've tried everything that I could find to revive it....
The only signs of life is when I plug it in to the computer and hold the volume up (or down) the power and the home button, and the computer gets a message about drivers needing to be installed for a Palm device.
But aside that, I've tried the holding the buttons down (every way that I could try), the holding the power and pressing the home multiple times...slow or fast.
I've tried the Touchstone, via the computer, 3rd party chargers (500mA, 640mA, 1A, 2A), directly with the Palm 2A, my Pre2 1A one, for days for each one, and still nothing.
I can't get the screen to show any sign of life at all.
I've been going at it for over 2 weeks now, and still no luck. Problem is I couldn't find the receipt, but I finally did last night... the date of purchase is about 3 weeks ago for the year to run out..... it's... just wrong as this is within a few days of it dying on me like this, I haven't contacted HP yet, but it's just frustrating that I'd either get lucky and they'll take it and fix (probably just get the charge going) under warranty, as the replacement not under warranty is over 300$ (close to double the price of getting another).
All this over a charging system that simply refuses to kick itself on.
Any advise would be appreciated.
