Id like to store my HP 48SX. Can I remove the main batteries for a extended time, or will some of it's firmware be lost, does it have firmware?
This is a 1st-year 48SX made in Corvallis OR.

you should remove the batts to avoid damage to the battery terminals,
which can occur by battery leakage.
The HP-48SX has it's 'firmware' or operating system in ROM,
so it won't get lost even after many years.
BTW: Could you provide th serial number of your unit?
