|HP41CV gone crazy...|
Message #1 Posted by Marx Pio on 31 July 2003, 10:14 p.m.
I turned on my beloved fullnut 41 and it started to show ones and fours by itself...Turned off an on again...and it started to scream its name again(41!). Now its ok. but does anybody here believes in digital ghosts that screams 4's and 1's using an old body of an 41??

Long time, no... read!
Man, that's completely awesome! I never heard about this before... But Amazonas has a lot of ghosts, doesn't it? The famous Boto and other jungle creatures... Have you been to the jungle for these days? Just kidding... I'd suggest checking the keyboard for humidity (and you know it's not hard to happen where you are) OR static discharges, if you are in "dried" regions. Keep in mind taht both keys share the same collumn electric contact. In time: your HP41CV, is it a half- or fullnut?
Nice reading your posts again. Keep close! (some não, meo)
I wish I could help a bit more...
