Hi,

Does anyone know any site/store where I could buy parts for the HP Touchpad. I only need the 'Control Button Assembly' Installing HP TouchPad Control Button Assembly - Page 2 - iFixit
which contains the volume up and down, power button and light sensor.

Thanks for anyone that could help.

right place for such stuff is Ebay, but you can always ask TTB here on the forum, he has plenty of spareparts

I was struggling to open up my son's touchpad case to replace the screen he recently dropped/cracked. He is beside himself for being so stupid. I felt lucky to have found a replacement touchscreen which I now have in my possession. Unfortunately, I hacked up the control button assembly when I got the device open. I can't seem to find any on eBay. Does someone in this forum have an alternate source? Pretty desperate here with a despondent kid. Any help is very, very appreciated!

If you just need the ribbon cable and buttons that are attached to the plastic then read this thread. It may take up to 3 weeks but it's cheap.

That does look like it, but just to be sure I'm understanding this correctly. From what I can see, I accidentally hacked through the board when trying to open the case. It appears this board handles three functions: the proximity/light sensor, the small power button on the top, and the larger toggle/volume button on the side. I still have the buttons but assume the board handles all the "spring" mechanisms of the buttons otherwise. The part on this site appears to be the full board itself with the ribbon cable attachment. Do I have all this correct before I order? Thanks again for the advice so far!
