Battery Icon with question mark (?)

History

My HP touchpad is out of warranty. When I try to power it on it shows a battery icon with question mark in it. When it is connected to a charger the light flashes on the center button. I have tried all solutions posted on the web, with different button combinations, leaving it on charge for more than a day, using different cables, trying to leave it connected to a computer, etc. Everything brings back the battery icon with question mark and cannot do anything more.

Connecting to a computer with USB, makes the center button lights to flash, but cannot access the file system thru USB.

I thought changing the battery, but not sure if that will fix the issue.

Is there a way to reset to factory defaults?

Please let me know if there is anyway to fix this.

It is more than likely not the battery, but that it is 'bricked' due to corruption of the boot-up firmware. Many people have had the issue, including myself, and resolved it by the methods at this link:

If this works for you, then thank all the people who worked to develop a solution especially 'jcsullins'!
