RE: HP-48SX (attempted) repair by Ben Heck
That was a ham-handed teardown not a repair attempt IMO. Even muted I couldn't watch that.

I've opened a few 48Gs by just popping the rivets - they all went back together with a nice "snap". Also, I have found shimming does not reliably work and the strip should be replaced if tightening the tabs a bit doesn't work.

Biggest issue was being selective in use of force for the lower rivets. Too much force and you will get a nice banana shaped keyboard.

But YMMV. Smile
