HP touchpad I purchased this time last year new. The TP when turned on only has back light on. The LCD screen is black. If you hold it at the right angle you can see that the backlight comes on. I haave tried the hard reset, also the volume button sound is working, you can hear it. But there isn't any icons, HP logo, are anything. Does anyone have any ideas what I can try to repair the TP?
Thanks for any help or advise,
Keith

Sounds like the LCD panel is dead, or the connector has come loose (less likely). There was another case like this with a Veer. Not sure if it's some kind of a control board failure or physical disconnection, but in any case, replacement screens are usually available on eBay...
