My 33 has gone wobbly
Message #1 Posted by Kirk on 7 May 2004, 2:26 p.m.

Iím pretty happy overall with my new HP 33 but I have noticed one thing lately that is bugging me a little. My HP has gone wobbly. The case is slightly warped so when you press the keys on the lower left side it makes a little bump noise as the rubber foot touches the table.

I donít know if I did this when I packed it in a case with 30 books for the PE exam or if it came this way. I think I might have warped it a little but now I wonder.

Does anybody else have a wobbly 33?

I just sort of twisted the calculator back the other way and now its flat again. It seems these calculators have the ability to get a little "bent out of shape".

I have the same problem with mine. A little twist and its back to normal.

Perhaps there is a new health discipline......

My 15c has been like that for a decade. I "fixed" it by thickening one of the rubber feet to compensate. :)
