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.

Refurbished HP TouchPads, both 16GB and 32GB versions, will be posted for sale through the HP eBay store at: 6:00 p.m. (Central Time), Sunday, December 11th. 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.

I have the same problem of the bottom (right) speaker not working. I think I am at least the 4th person to have this problem. Seems to be quite common. I have to send the unit in for RMA and will get back in 7-10 days at no cost to me. It doesn't seem like these refurbs were thoroughly tested at all. I guess I will have to find another Xmas present for the wifeMad
As with other people, I've been unfortunate to receive a TP with the speakers not working (neither of them) Frown

For the people who have contacted HP for repair, did you have to provide some sort of proof of purchase? Or did you just give them the serial number?

Yes, it is quite nice. I love the headphone audio (combined with Sennheiser HD 598), truly beats indeed. Now if only I could hear the speakers.

You give them the serial and then ask your name. Then they look up your serial and your warranty (Mine was 1 year) all the sudden becomes 90 days.

We got screwed by being given a 90 day warranty as was stated when we purchased them?

Quote from slickJoeGii View Post :
Mine is the left speaker (closest to headset/earphone jack), but everything works including camera, wifi, and external jack. Not sure if I want to send back since I mostly use it for reading news, email and non multi-media apps , plus right speaker is loud enough. One non-functioning speaker seems a common problem as reported online. I don't think this were tested as most of the units (though tagged refurb) looks new and we're just seeing the existing problem now.
Have you taken off the plastic wrap yet to test the speakers? One speaker was louder than the other before I loosen the plastic wrap and then both speakers were working fine - giving out same volumes.

That plastic wrap was really stuck on the speaker. I hope that is the issue.

Quote from M3_WC View Post :
Someone that called for a repair earlier in the thread, was told by the customer service rep his warranty was a 1 year. Not 90 days.

This is what prompted people to look up their own warranty.
As long as they don't ask for proof of purchase, then I'd say most of us will have about a year then. For those of us that got newish Touchpads, we probably don't have to worry at all.

It keeps saying unable to find my product. I entered the serial and product numbers, but it's not taking them...

I rebooted the touchpad to get it to flash it (held down volume), but I couldn't figure out how to get terminal to work in 64bit. How do I get it out of this mode?

Anyone having luck with wifi on CM7? I've tried setting my security from WEP to WPA1/2, rebooting the router... just sits at "Obtaining IP address."
