WP34s 'RESET' in the annunciator area - MarkHaysHarris777 - 04-02-2015 02:34 AM

Greetings, I was converting a rectangular coordinate(s) to polar today (I used the result) and then I pressed 'times' [x] to clear X (zero was in Y) and very briefly I saw the word 'RESET' (it might have been spelled 'Reset') in the annuciator area; no battery warning, no 'RESTORED', no other errors, and everything else is working as expected (and I got the correct results).

Anybody know what the 'RESET' is all about, where it comes from, what it means?

TIA

It's an unexpected processor reset without memory loss. Replace the coin cells and check if this happens again. It shouldn't but you never know.

Thanks, Marcus. Do you want details if there is a 'next' time for bug reporting purposes? That calc is the one I keep on my drafting table, so it doesn't get used as frequently as the one on my desk, or the other one in the study; so, its batts are 'new,' as it were (well, they are two months chronologically)


Cheers,
