Why oh why do I visit ebay !! lol

Just snagged another HP41CV at a great price !!, ..... yes another (I have one already bought last year)

I'll have something to share modules and a card reader with at least

Will folks be bidding on HP-Primes on e-Bay 30 years from now? Hmmm...


#16

What will a CL with CLUTILS go for???

#18

In 30 years, will there be something to replace epay? Or at least competition so the ebay/paypal momopoly will be fourced to function well?

Bah !!!, arrived today and it's a DOA !!!
Transferred my battery pack from my working 41 and simply nothing !, no reset, replacing battery pack several times or anything else could wake it up!, battery terminals are fairly clean and undamaged.

Disappointed I am !!


EDIT:However the seller has informed me to junk it and he will just refund me !!
So I have one for spares - if there are any spares recoverable from a duffer?

Damn tootin, convert to a CL, simply a PCA board swap.. Let alone attempting to fix it.

Really, this is the perfect candidate for a Monte board.

Also examine the screw posts attached to the keyboard, if good, a perfect donor for a buggy (due to posts example). Good rear shell. Excellent display panel and probably working drivers. Is the battery/module connector corroded? If not a perfect donor, zebra strips or coiled strop PCA to keyboard connectors, the list goes on...

DO NOT JUNK!

Too late it's in the bin ......

......... only joking !!

Actually that makes good sense , I've heard of the CL , not sure what a buggy is ? or why the posts would affect things ?

Funds are low right now , but it will NOT be scrapped !! that I can assure you of :)

I actually asked him about the battery terminals post sale and he described battery terminal condition at 95%, they looked pretty good, although I did notice stains on the plastic sheet in the bottom of the battery compartment which didn't bode well, I may well rip it to bits tomorrow and see what's what

Grrrr - it's a half nut :-(

I may still rip it to bits to see what the cause of its deaded-ness is


#23

Whoa nelly! i meant buggy other example. Also, a halfnut 41CV is not that common.

Take it easy on the rip apart!
