HP 38G Scientific Calculator Will Not Power On

Been stored a couple of years in a hot attic, before I tried fresh batteries recently. Tried powering up/reseting using the manual's suggestions of holing the ON button and another button as dictated. Also tried the reset pin hole on the back. Any ideas? Is this calculator worth getting repaired, if necessary?

Try opening the software on your PC. Set the connection to USB and connect your calc. On the calc press the right shift key followed by the right arrow key.....software should now recognize the calc.

Hello,
I can't locate any information regarding an HP 8s Scientific Calculator, but I can locate information on a HP 9s Scientific Calculator. Perhaps they are similar in function. From the HP web site, please check out the link below.

I hope this helps!

You can't charge the calculator off the solar power panel. The solar power panel merely conserves battery power when using the calculator in a bright environment. Try putting in a new battery and see whether the calculator turns on.

Can I use on the ACT exam


your model isn't listed, but read rules Calculators are only allowed to be used on the mathematics test; however, a calculator is not necessary to take the exam. Any student who attempts to use a calculator on the science exam will be dismissed and the worksheet will not be scored. It is the student's responsibility to make sure they bring sufficient batteries and that the calculator works properly. Test center personnel do not have backup calculators or batteries. 1.jpg Only certain types of calculators may be used during the test. Most four-function, scientific or graphing calculators are permitted, but some features may have to be disabled before the calculator can be used. Devices that include calculators among their functions-cell phones, laptops, PDAs-are forbidden, as are calculators with built-in algebra capabilities or QWERTY keyboard buttons. Also, certain specific models of calculators are forbidden, including the following: all Texas Instruments model numbers that begin with TI-89 and TI-92, as well as the TI-Nspire CAS (the non-CAS TI-Nspire is allowed); the Hewlett-Packard hp 48GII model and all model numbers that begin with hp 40G, hp 49G, or hp 50G; the Casio Algebra fx 2.0, ClassPad 300, and all model numbers that begin with CFX-9970G; and all electronic writing pads or pen-input devices, except for the Sharp EL 9600.
As mentioned previously, certain calculators can be used after extra features are disabled. Calculators that use paper tape, for example, may be used after the tape roll is removed. If the student has a model that makes sounds, disabling the sound feature makes the calculator acceptable for use during the test. For calculators that can communicate wirelessly, infrared ports must be covered with opaque material (such as electrician's tape or duct tape) of sufficient thickness to block infrared signals; the Hewlett-Packard hp-38G and hp-48G series are examples of this device type. Also, calculators with power cords must have the cords removed before they can be used during the exam.

My calculator wont turn on what do I do?


Have you tried fixing it with fresh battery's? If it's Solar panelled then it could be shattered and no longer attracting light. If that's the case It'd be cheaper buying a new one.

How to fix a none responsive button in hp 35s calculator


Resetting the Calculator
If the calculator doesn't respond to keystrokes or if it is otherwise behaving unusually, attempt to reset it. Resetting the calculator halts the current calculation and cancels program entry, digit entry, a running program, a SOLVE calculation, an ∫ FN calculation, a VIEW display, or an INPUT display. Stored data usually remain intact.

To reset the calculator, hold down the C key and press GTO . If you are unable to reset the calculator, try installing fresh batteries. If the calculator cannot be reset, or if it still fails to operate properly, you should attempt to clear memory using the special procedure described in the next section. If the calculator still does not respond to keystrokes, use a thin, pointed object to press the RESET hole.
The calculator can reset itself if it is dropped or if power is interrupted.

CLEARING the MEMORY

If the calculator fails to respond to keystrokes, and you are unable to restore operation by resetting it or changing the batteries, try the following MEMORY CLEAR procedure. These keystrokes clear all of memory, reset the calculator, and restore all format and modes to their original, default settings (shown below):
  1. Press and hold down the C key.
  2. Press and hold down the R/S key
  3. Press i (You will be holding three keys simultaneously)
  4. When you release all three keys, the display shows MEMORY CLEAR if the operation is successful.

The calculator is intermittent: Most of the time


Not knowing what to do, I tried anything that could possibly help:

I installed fresh batteries and I pushed the reset button on the back of the calculator (Sharp EL-546L) and finally, it work all right after more than 5 years I own the calculator and where it did work correctly for 5 minutes. I tried the reset button in the past (long time ago) and it didn't work. This time it worked because, maybe, I've used fresh batteries.
