It's been a year since I've posted here but I'm running into a dead end with my Touchpad.
Let me preface this by saying that I have installed CM9 and been running it for about a year now. My wife wanted a Netflix box so that was my only reason for installing CM9.
About 4 months ago I noticed that the TP was not charging while plugged into the wall. I would wake up to a dead TP, turn it on and have wait 10-15min for the batter icon to disappear to get to the moboot screen. Now the TP will not charge once it boots into Webos or CM9, it will only charge while in the moboot screen. I don't think that this is a cable, barrel charger or microusb issue because it still charges the unit but only before the desktop screen.
Things I have tried with no success:
Twisting and untwisting the cable
unscrewed the barrel charger
propping the microusb while connected to TP on a book at different widths
using charging cables from my Pre+, Samsung Focus, other microusb devices with barrel charger
leaving it plugged to pc for days to trickle charge
every combination of button presses
full reset from settings menu / cannot doctor it since the charging port does not work.
Sorry for the long wall of words but I'm about to give up and have been searching for a solution on and off for the past few months. My wife has moved on to the Microsoft Surface so this will be my playtoy to experiment with. Thanks in advance for any advice/solutions
