I've got it for several week s and I can not turn it off.
It does not turn off automaticaly as other simmilar calculators.

Is there an advantage in turning it off?

Have you tried covering up the solar cell for 5 mins?

What about smashing it with a hammer - although turning it on again might be a problem - oh for the HP's of old.

The casio (yuk) FX451 solar could be turn off by pressing 3 keys at the same time (this feature was not in the manual). However you had to press them EXACTLY at the same time so it often took several goes. I think the keys were AC, =, Shift.

PS Can you get the TEXET Albert II in the US? Here in the UK it looks exactly like the HP6(S). There is now a TEXET Albert III with a 2 line display and horrible user interface - any HP's in the pipeline like that?

Pal,

I think the solar type is joke from HP, well you have to take off the battery (battery?)and put some tape over solar cells ;)

If you want to keep it only solar powered just keep it without the battery but it wont work at half-light.

Why would anyone want to turn back on that abomination? It looks, feels, and works exactly like a cheap Japanese calculator.

So use your hammer... and then the wastebasket.

Hi,

the joke was made by Texet.
The 'HP6S Solar' *is* a relabelled Texet Albert.

Laughing sometimes is a must... Thanks, Tony.
