HP 32Sii Troubleshooting - Does not turn ON


I've had my 32Sii for nearly 10 years now, and it has worked without fail until just a few days ago.

when I pressed the ON button the screen was very dim. I tried to adjust the contrast,I put in a set of fresh batteries, tinkered with it, all to no avail.

Anyways, I found a simple fix to the problem. I used a fine grit sandpaper to scour the battery terminals. the terminals looked clean, and shiny so I did not think it would actually work, but miracle, my trusted HP32Sii came back to life.

Hope this will help somebody with a similar problem.

It did.

I warmly thank you, my HP 22S wasn't working anymore until I used a rubber to clean the battery terminals.

It turned out to be working perfectly afterwards!
