HP-48SX missing its battery cover
Message #1 Posted by Jean-Michel on 14 Sept 2007, 4:45 p.m.

Hi all,

I recently took from the trash bin of the office where I work a non functioning HP-48SX. (Yes, that does happen!) After some investigations, I found the problem: the “ON” key doesn’t operate until I press on the face plate above the “B” key at the same time. Probably the unit has fall on the floor once in its life, and the PCB isn’t correctly fitted any more. This minor problem doesn’t bother me much, all the more so since I already have a 48GX. On the contrary, the battery cover is missing, and this is a bigger problem, because at least one of the batteries often falls. So, if I may ask for this in this forum, would anyone here have a spare 48’s battery cover, so that we could both make an arrangement?

(If this isn’t definitely the right place for such a request, please let me know, Dave: I apologize in advance…)

Kind regards.
