Nothing special is needed to trigger this issues. Once in Home I simply wanted to calculate in textbook mode (10-7.57)/0.09 - and bang! There materialized from nowhere some Japanese or Chinese symbols, and at the next try nothing after the dot was accepted by the input parser, when trying to enter 0.09 of the denominator., thus always resulting in a div by zero. Only a paperclip reset helped.
I haven't yet entered any program, nor did I input any special things, only very basic kinds of arithmetics, or simple CAS tasks. Anyway, with near full batteries, the HP Prime twice could not be switched on, other than by paperclip reset. Why, for God's sake, is this so? I have some advanced HP calculators (12, 15, 19, 28, 32, 32ii, 35, 48, 49, 50), and also some TI's (58, 59, 86, 89, 92+), but no one of them is that much buggy like the HP Prime with it's actual Firmware.
Kind regards, Ralf.
