I had a Touchpad go into QoD mode, and the battery had been abused for a long time(DPO not using the correct charger).
It also had a crack in the digitizer, so I purchased what was supposed to be a new digitizer and glass off Ebay, a new battery, and I downloaded TPDebrick.
I changed out the battery, put on the new glass/digitizer on my old LCD, and I got TPDebrick to work.
When I got TPDebrick to work, the TP acted like the backlight was out. So, I took it apart a couple more times, checked my connections, and I finally got the lights to come on.
(1) My Touchscreen is dead- 90% of it is not working as a touchscreen, beautiful color, no dead pixels, but it does not recognize touch.
(2) The little Blue Light which is across from the home screen is permanently off. I seem to remember it always being on when my TP is on.
I still have the Old glass/digitizer and I have the LCD which came with the new TP glass.
Should I switch them out and see if there is a difference ?
Did I short something out trying to repair this POS ?
Would it do any good for me to re-run TPDebrick ?
I was told that I could run WebOSDoctor and reset the machine, but I can't get into Settings, so I can't get into Device Info so I can't get into recovery. And when I plug my Touchpad into the computer while it is in WebOSDoctor, the USB option pops up on the Touchpad, but the "Next" button always stays grey.
Thoughts ? Questions for me ? Suggestions other than using it for skeet shooting ?
