Default HP TouchPad battery drained and won't turn on... please help

Hi everyone,

I installed CM9 Tenderloin nightlies on my TouchPad and I loved it. However, my battery drained a couple weeks ago and I have had NO success in reviving it. The screen is blank and the charger is cold, indicating that it is not charging. I left it charged for a week and still nothing. I tried pressing a bunch of button combinations to reset it, plugging in the computer and tried to run WebOS doctor, made sure it wasn't my charger by locking the the prongs, etc, etc, etc... I finally gave up and decided to give HP a call. No surprise, they didn't know what was going on and told me to ship my TouchPad in... until they found out that I installed Android on my device.

They claimed that by installing Android, I had irreversibly destroyed the hardware of the TouchPad and it would cost $230+ to fix. Ridiculous, considering I paid $150. They couldn't explain the science behind their reason so I just gave up and hung up.

Is there anyone, I mean ANYONE!!! out there that can help me? I would greatly appreciate it!!
