I probably should have been more specific about what I meant. Even the PCR wouldn't "wake" the calculator; I had to remove/insert a battery to get the system to respond.

Good to know! Did I miss that in the docs somewhere? I don't recall seeing it. It's OK if it's not (I understand the current status of things), but I just wanted to make sure I'm not missing something.

In my case I blamed the batteries and put new ones but perhaps if the rom hasn't been flashed in a long time some bits may refuse to be erased or reprogrammed. The second burn with the same bit states seems to do it. Now that I'm reflashing very often the issue never reappeared.

Is it possible that the status of the RTC could be a part of this? Or possibly something in RAM (not flash)? I don't recall ever seeing this type of issue with other firmware updates. Just a thought.
