    Default Can't wait to sell this junk

    I don't know if I have a lemon or what but its been well documented how the stock USB cable is worthless and eventually won't charge our TP's. So I go and buy heavy duty USB cable from Amazon which worked for a month or two, now it won't charge again.
    First I could get it to work my manipulating the cable just right but now even that won't work. I don't know if its a cable problem or if the connector on the TP is to blame (micro USB male end seems to have too much play when connected).
    So even though I have android 2.3 installed on my TP, I can't wait to sell this junk and save for the Asus nexus. End rant

    Wiggling the cable to make it work is always a horrible idea.

    A). Return the Unit to HP for a relacement USB Board/Port.

    B). Get a Touchstone charging Dock?

    Also, it is currently not charged, so if I ever send it to HP and they boot it up, they gonna see a nice cyangon mod boot logo lol. Not sure they gonna like that.

    Take a look at the wallcharger unit. My TP didn't charge, I did a Google search and found info on fixing the wallcharger. The unit is basically two pieces. You have to twist the part with the USB input. Make sure its in place. I just did this and its charging as I type this. Hope this helps.

    I had to send mine in for repair. Tried two different chargers, two different cables, and touchstone. Nothing would charge it. Not to mention all of the techniques I found on the forums.
