How to turn HP 6S Solar off ?
#1

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.

#2

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.

Is there anything I lost in here? What`s up? (...and I`m called `nutz` by my falks)

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

Cheers,
