[WP-34S] Unfortunate key damage with update to V3 :(



#2

Hi all,

Unfortunately, I damaged one of the number keys on my WP-34S while removing the V2 overlay in preparation for an update to V3.

I got careless and allowed the key label to pull the key away from the keyboard ubruptly while removing it, resulting in that key losing its 'click'. So a word of warning for anyone removing labels from WP-34S keys, do so carefully so that the key is not pulled away from the keyboard in that fashion.

Sorry to hear of your unfortunate loss, but thanks for the heads up! You spurred me to order a spare 30B and two overlays, just in case.

Best,

I have also ordered a new 30b just now. Prices are low compared to when I first purchased one. Less than $30 CAD new at a local computer store with free in-store pickup. Hopefully the keyboard is not faulty!

Exactly - I got one for $AUD22.00 plus shipping on eBay, and it was marked as despatched within half an hour. It makes the WP-34S even
more attractive. If I'm careful, I should wind up with two of them.

TAS has quantities for $9.95 each. No kidding.

That 30b I ordered just arrived - but also in the box was a bonus Smartcalc 300S (I won't say what I think, but I gave it away promptly), QuickCalc, and a 39G+ premium pouch.

I'd say the dealers are quitting a pileup of stuff they can't move any other way. ;)

Best,
