Battery may be faulty, perhaps you can swap with another user to rule this out. Do the battery charge level lights on the back of the battery show a full charge? (Press the rounded square button on the back of the battery itself and note whether the 3 green leds light up or not) Has the battery been calibrated? (You will need the "toaster" style or the DT533A charger to do this). I assume that your battery is secure and properly seated, but try taping it down from the back side just to be sure it is snug. Don't use duct tape, just regular scotch style tape or blue masking tape. Also try laying on your back to hold the unit upside down and power it up. Check the small metal fins that mesh with the battery. They are right above the right side of the windows cert of auth sticker when turned as you would to read it. They are NOT all the same length, do not push or pull them, but if one is bent you may try to straighten it VERY carefully with very small tools.
What happens if you unplug while up and running?
How does the power jack feel when you insert or remove it? any looseness may indicate your trouble. A good tech can repair your trouble. Are you sure that you are not under warranty? HP still sells extended warranty for these machines. My original warranty expired in Sept and I bought extended warranty for another year. I'm in central MO if you are close by at all I would meet up and swap a batt for a minute for you. Also, you may get a lil more usability with a car cord if the problem cannot be resolved at all.
Best of luck! I love my tc1100 and the older brother tc1000 as well. I have several of each.

There is a reset button at the bottom (insert paper clip in pinhole). If all attempts trying to unfreeze it fail, you may have a logic board issue. Are you sure the Kindle powers up? Try to power up your Kindle with a different battery. If that fails, you can get the part at Kindle Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at Kindle Repair Guide.

SOURCE: my literati wont turn on
Hm. Not sure how much help I'll be, but I'll give it a shot.
- Make sure the device is charged for at least 6 hours if this is its first use. If it isn't, charge it for several hours anyway and try it again. Make sure the charger is plugged all the way into the outlet and all the way into the device (mine sticks out about an eighth of an inch, yours might too). - Call customer service at 866-204-4714 and describe the issue. I had something a little like this issue (I was stuck at "Literati" screen) and they said to drain the battery and recharge it fully to see if it made any difference, and that if it didn't work they'll be sending along a package to ship it back to them for a replacement. If nothing works, ship it back to them for a replacement.

Remove the adapter and the battery from the laptop.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN.
Now connect only the adapter and try to turn it on.
If it starts up, there is no problem with the adapter or the laptop.
If it doesn't, it can be either the adapter or the laptop.
You will have to check it with a different adapter to confirm which one is faulty.
The second case is that the computer powers on only with the adapter.
Then you can put the battery back in and try powering it up.
If it doesn't work, try connecting the adapter too.
If still it doesn't work, its a faulty battery.
Sometimes after doing a power drain, the computer will work fine.
If you have any more issues, feel free to contact me.
