if your answer is "No, I do not allow you a silly question!", please, do not read... It may be considered a silly question, anyway! <8^(
although it seems silly, I cannot help asking it: are you sure it is an HP41CX?
Please, prior to blame me for that question, just let me ask a few others: Is it a newly bought unit, that you have never used before? Did [SHIFT][ON] work properly before? Have you tried [CAT] 2 and checked for the headers-only, CX-style catalog output?
I'm asking these all because it is not hard to hardwire the Time and the X-Functions modules inside a regular HP41CV and 'transplant' its guts to a CX case.
Again, please, if this is not the case, forgive me. I have seen some weird 'hacked' models that called my attention to what can and cannot be done...
Will you forgive me?
