|HP 32SII repairing|

Hi everybody. Two facts:
1) I live in Italy, and you may know what it means, from a HP user point of view;
2) I have a HP 32SII which all of a sudden freezed with a "buzz" sound. Now, every now and then, it still works correctly, but it shows the pressed keys (e.g., if you press 2 3 + <Enter> sometimes it shows the writing "Enter" for an instant when you press Enter, or if you digit 23 5.5 ÷ it shows the character ÷ when you press that key), and you are not sure when it will freeze again (it means the display goes blank and no keys work and no reset can be done).
Notice that it has never fallen on the ground and it has never got hit.
The point is I've been told by the local HP center (which deals with HP calculators no more sold by HP) that such calculator is not repairable, because it's a whole body machine, and there's no use in repairing it even if, say, the broken microcomponent could be found and replaced.
I'd want to know if such a problem ever arised to you, and if you could manage it and get your calculator repaired. THe last thing I want for my calculator is considering it gone.
Thanks in advance
