RE: Low Battery Asterisk - HP10C
Thanks, Bob. The center lead on both ends is pushed outward -- away from the batteries. Each one looks like it is very close to if not resting on the plastic. The other two are pushed inwards -- towards the batteries. They are about equidistant from the end of the compartment.

The batteries don't seem quite as tight as the other Voyagers that I have. Perhaps with time and/or over-zealous owners, they have been bent a little too far outwards.

A close inspection with a magnifying glass shows very little corrosion or contamination on the terminals. I have cleaned them once with CRC contact cleaner. I cannot find my DeOxit Can nor can I find my contact burnisher.

In my early years, I was a protective relay engineer and have done a LOT of contact cleaning. I'll see if I can't scare up the DeOxit and my burnisher. Also, maybe a little VERY gentle manipulating to get all of the contacts a few millimeters farther in.

I'll keep you posted on my results. Thanks for the help.
