HP-42S work-around for sticking to low contrast LCD problem - Lyuka - 01-22-2010

Hi all.
(It might be good news for DavidShenk.)

I recently bought an HP-42S which has LCD contrast problem that seems to be identical to the case of the previous thread
'An HP-42S fix success, and a contrast problem'.

I tried another way to generate the LCD bias voltage, and the work-around seems to work well so far.

for more information -

What I bought (at Yahoo JAPAN auction) and repaired is identical to DavidShenk's.

I take a few days off checking the forum and when I come back you've got my calculator! I did not realize you were the buyer. I had reached a dead end and just couldn't do anything else with it.

I'm glad you were able to find a fix. You always do a good job documenting what you do, and I think it will be a good help to others in the future.
