RE: HP41CX tragedy strikes
A few times, including after very minor falls, I've had the problem with my halfnut cx that it won't power up. I always lay it down very gently now because of this, and the problem shows up a couple of times a year. I've never looked at the insides, but the power control seems to be on the same bridge board with the built-in time and date module, and the connections to it are not the best anymore. I just bang the side of the calc on the heel of my hand, and it it works again. I have to reset the time and date, but the other memory is unaffected. (Lots of HP-41 links at the bottom of the links page, )
