HP 35s: Killed by software?



#2

Hi, malheur de malheur:

I just typed

SOLVE R

on it, the busy indicator went on, after a few seconds the display went dark and can't be switched on again.

Similar experiences?

Cheers, Peter.

Dead batteries?


#4

Took batteries out and in again, came back with memory clear message. Seems to be fine now.


#5

If the batteries are not new, I think it's possible that the batteries are weakened to a point where heavy-duty computations draw more current than the batteries can handle, causing a blackout that would require a reset.

Good to know your 35s wasn't killed by software... like virus. :)

BTW, if this happens again, try the RESET hole on the back. It might save removing/re-inserting the batteries.
