Question about HP 17bII+ Calculator
My HP 17BII calculator will not turn on. When I press the ON button it emits a high-pitched beep (sound continues for as long as I hold down the ON button). Nothing happens when I press any other button.

Hey Dave- take a look at the following link. I like to have the user actually look at the user guide instead of describing it. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If this isn't exactly right or you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.

do a self test
1. Turn the calculator on.
2. If you have the optional infrared printer, turn it on. Certain diagnostic
information is printed during the test.
3. If possible, return to the MAIN menu (press @A).
4. To start the self-test, hold down C while you press the fifth menu
key from the left. Once the self-test has begun, do not press any keys
until you are ready to halt the test.
5. During the test, the calculator beeps periodically and displays various
patterns and characters. Watch for one of two messages that are
displayed before the test automatically repeats:
If the calculator passes the self-test, the calculator displays
If the calculator displays followed by a five-digit number,
the calculator requires service.
6. To halt the self-test, hold down C while you press the third menu
key from the left. The calculator displays . If you
press any other key instead, the test halts and the calculator displays
a message. This results from an incorrect key being pressed,
and does not mean that the calculator requires service.
7. If the calculator failed the self-test, repeat steps 4 through 6 to verify
the results. If you do not have a printer, write down the messages that
are displayed in step 5.

In most cases this cannot be economically repaired... the cost to repair would be more then the calculator is worth...
