Check the connection under the keyboard. you might have to remove the panel near the screen just above the keyboard ito get to the screws. the plug is usually what looks to be a plastic band with lines on it that slides into a thin slot. i had the same problem with my laptop screen. there were white, green, blue and red strips of pixels every inch and a half.

Missing Keystrokes on the HP17bII+ Calculator

Have you tried any other models of HP calculators? Like maybe the 12c? Perhaps the issue is the way you push the buttons - I'm not saying you're doing it wrong what I'm saying is maybe the tactile response from this particular model just doesn't work for you. i.e. it feels like you pressed the button but it didn't actuate. I know, it's a rude idea to solve an HP problem by suggesting buying another HP but it just might work. Go by an office products place and see if the have a 12 Demo you can play with to see if you have the same issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then maybe try one of TI's business models.

Coronomatic 2200 carriage return stops advancing

It sounds like you are coming up against your right margin. By hitting release you are merely bypassing the margin. You might try resetting your right margin by clearing it all the way to the right side of the carriage first then resetting it to where you want it.

Problem with the laptop keyboard (HP pavilion zd8000)

Firstly give yout keyboard a hoovering gently, then if no change it could be the keyboard driver, this will be either on a recovery disc supplied with the laptop or on a recovery partition on your harddrive. You won't need to do a complete recovery, just a re instalation of the keyboard driver
