HP employees will have a chance to purchase a refurbished HP TouchPad via eBay before the sale is announced to the general public. Specifically, the TouchPads will be offered through one of HP's newest marketplaces for close-out and refurbished HP products, the new HP eBay Store <http://stores.ebay.com/hewlettpackard> .
look around
This product will NOT be available through any other HP stores, such as the Home & Home Office store, Small & Medium Business store, HP EPP or the HP Business Outlet. PLEASE DO NOT CALL ANY OF THESE CALL CENTERS BECAUSE IT DISRUPTS REGULAR SALES ACTIVITIES AND THEY'RE UNABLE TO PROCESS AN ORDER FOR THE TOUCHPADS ANYWAY.

In an effort to give HP employees first chance at a very limited supply of refurbished TouchPads, there will be a short delay between when the product is posted live for sale on eBay and when the general public is notified of the sale.

If you are interested in purchasing a refurbished TouchPad, please make yourself a reminder to log-on to eBay a few minutes before the sale starts to make your purchase.

The TouchPads will be available for sale here (under "Laptops"):

Stolen unit from Indianapolis. I contacted UPS and they won't help me. They told me to check with my neighbors, and then have the seller open an investigation with them. My neighbors don't have it, so I sent HP a message through ebay. HP sent me a message back saying per the tracking info it was delivered. I already explained this situation in my original email, so I sent the same thing back. I am awaiting a 2nd response from HP. But it doesn't look good so far. I will be opening a paypal dispute tomorrow. EDIT- I called the # and they were very helpful and said they are sending me a replacement, which will be here by christmas.
Received 16GB when 32GB was paid for - 1 (from TX)

How to Update Refurbished Touchpad from OS version 3.0.2 to latest 3.0.4

I got my Touchpad today, but the newly arrived refurbished Touchpad is running OS version 3.0.2 and claims to be up to date. Of course, we know that the latest OS is 3.0.9 from the retail Touchpads.

In order to update it to the latest OS, you have to use webOS Doctor. First, go through the Setup steps on your Touchpad and create a webOS account, aka HP Profile. Then to go http://www.hpwebos.com/account and log in. Clicked on Device Options and download the webOS Doctor.

Once webOS Doctor is downloaded, run it and follow the steps until it asks you to connect the Touchpad. Before you connect, you have to put your Touchpad into USB Update mode using these steps [hpwebos.com] listed on the webOS Doctor FAQ.

Then the Next button should show up and it will proceed. The whole process took about 1 hour, and my Touchpad is now running on the latest 3.0.9 and hopefully it will receive future OS updates too (if not use these steps again).

-- c46

FYI, I tried to update from 3.0.2 to 3.0.9 for multiple times without success yesterday. And gave a first shot today, it updates smoothly by itself, takes around 20 minutes. If you don't wanna to go through webOS doctor, you may just hold on for a while and just keep on trying. System itself doesn't have too much difference.

Just a heads up. The 30 lbs showing under your tracking IS only for 1 Touchpad. If you ordered 2, you can track the other one by REFERENCE if you have or set up an account with UPS to be able to view "Additional Information". Once you are logged in and use your existing tracking number, you will see under additional information a reference number. Simply take the last number of that reference number and increase or decrease by 1 and then copy and paste that to "track by reference", select United States and your zip code and do your search. You should see the other package in transit. I have 4 separate shipments, 3 from Indianapolis and 1, scheduled for delivery today, from Edison NJ. Again,you need to create an account with UPS to see this additional information and reference number. I have delivery alerts set up with "My UPS" and that's how I know.


Alternate tracking by REFERENCE without signing up for UPS account.

there seem to a lot of new sd'ers on this thread who were not involved in the first go round in August. that means basic questions are being asked which is fine. Be aware that slickdeals has an INCREDIBLE amount of good information regarding the TP. search and ye shall find

my first inclindation regarding your comments is to ensure that the power plug cylinder is clicked in so that power is getting to the usb adapter...you have to tigthen it and hear the click at the outlet end before the contacts engage to give power...try that. Also ensure you hold down the power button for a few seconds....let us know we are here to help
Thanks for your answer. I'm pretty sure I have done all as you said.

Hey guys and gals, I just got my TouchPad in today. There is a small, but noticable defect in the screen. It is by the home button at the bottom and is a lighter area. Also if you gently push the screen, where the bezle is, it will "float" the image. Is this something worth contacting HP over? Will they do anything? Thanks

I got my 32gb, seems like it's in great shape but how can we tell its NEW and not refurb?
Mine isn't scheduled for delivery until 12/15 but when I get it I will have my husband (works for HP) check the serial and see if it says anything about being a refurb.

If there is definitely a physical defect, you have every right to contact HP. Though I'm not sure what they would be able to do besides a refund.

Right now there is another post for Office Depot. I just picked up the touchstone for $30 and they also have the keyboard for $20. Both are AC and B&M only.

Where is the said coupon for Office depot?


Thanks!

I'd talk to them about it via live online chat or phone:

http://kb.hpwebos.com/wps/portal/...ge_en.html

Live chat link is towards the bottom of that page. They have been very helpful every time I've talked to them.

Thanks very much. Just searched for a while, and it started to work after I held the power button for 15 seconds, and then held the home button together for 15 seconds.

I just got 2 32gb touchpad. One works fast. But the other one cannot be powered on.
What's wrong with it? They both look brand new.
send back? or can I change a new one?

Frown
Don't panic yet.

1) Charge it for a while (10-15 min). Use included AC adapter (higher power than generic)
2) Leaving it on charge, try turning it on normally. You have to hold the power button 5+ secs and it takes a while for the HP logo to appear.
3) If that doesn't work, hold BOTH the power and HOME buttons for a LONG time, at least 46-60 seconds.

My brand new 32 GB bought in the original fire sale would only turn on after holding Power and Home per 3) above. It was a one time occurrence and has never required that again. HP support said it happens in a small number of units.

Also, there is a Software Update utility on the Touchpad that you can run to check for the system update and start it. It's on the far right screen after you hit the Down arrow in the bottom right hand corner from the main screen.

He said that anything done to any system is noted. He can look it up in the program and see any notes/info on it.
