|18C, RTC trouble|
Message #1 Posted by Thomas Radtke on 1 Apr 2004, 9:02 a.m.
this is not an april fool: Starting today, the real time clock of my 18C is going wild. It insists on today being the 4th instead of the 1st, no matter how often I try to readjust it. Ok, I know I'm not able to fix it, I only wanted to share this info. Heck, I really got used to this nice and easy to use calculator:(.

Yes, you are not going crazy---that is an Easter-Egg. If you have the machine set to commas rather than periods, when you get to April 1, the machine starts to give faulty time. All you have to do is set it to periods and then run a self-test. Then it will work correctly.

Now I'm glad to be such a patient person, not having thrown away that joker:).
Thanks a lot, Bill!
