|HP-41CX Needs help|
Message #1 Posted by Raymond Beehler on 23 Apr 2004, 2:04 p.m.
Hi, I recently got a barcode reader for my HP-41CX, and I tried using it with my setup. I had a card reader, and a Clonix module installed. I used a simple "configuration builder" posted on some website to make My Clonix config, because I'm just learning the ropes and not so good at all the fancy configuration options.
Anyway, I plugged in the barcode reader into port 3, and it locked up the calculator. I think there was a address conflict or something? At any rate, Port 3 on the 41CX no longer works, it just emits a high-pitch buzzing sound anytime I plug something into it. I tried a continous memory reset, and even removed the battaries to totally kill the main memmory, yet nothing worked. I've put the calculator away for now and decided to seek profesional help, before I make a bad problem worse.
Can anyone explain to me whats going on? I need a solution pretty quickly here, because I need to use this on a test in a few days.
