Unknoun 'Hex' Annunciator on HP10b
Message #1 Posted by Raul Leslie C. on 25 Sept 2005, 10:03 a.m.

I've got an old HP10b (1987) but it has an 'Hex' Annunciator on the display, that I want to turn off.

In the manual I didn't found anything about this message.

Please can someone help me with this problem.

Thanks. RLeslie.

Just erase memory and it should remove the hex annunciator. From the manual:

Press and hold down [C], then press and hold down both [N] and [E+]. Memory is cleared and the ALL CLr message is displayed when you release all three keys.

Interesting, what is this indicator supposed to be used for ? Probably nothing on the stock 10B, so was there supposed to be another model on this hardware base with base conversion functions ?

The 20S provided HEX/DEC/OCT/BIN functions.
