Question about HP 35s Scientific Calculator

# HP35s extracting P to R anwsers and place in memory

I've been an HP 32Sii user for over 15 years a roof leekage took the caluclator to it's grave, replaced it with a HP 35s.
I use the polar to rectangular conversion daily, how do you extract the solutions from an polar to rectangular calculation and store the X, Y or the R, angle into memory?

Given a complex number, ARG (yellow-shift i) will give you the angle in the current angular mode, while ABS (blue-shift +/-) will give you the magnitude.

To extract the real and imaginary components, you'll have to use the relationships
x = r cos(a) and y = r sin(a).

### I HAVE REPALCED THE BATTERIES AND IT WILL NOT POWER ON.

The HP 32SII calculator has a very common problem with the keyboard connections. There might be nothing else wrong with the calculator except the contacts.

Try pinching the calculator just below the middle of the screen above the [LN] and [Y^x] keys while pushing the [C] button to power it on.

If this worked, at least you know where the problem is. Fixing that problem temporarily, some users wrap a rubber band around the calculator at that point and put something under it to keep pressure on that spot.

The longer-term fix is harder and involves taking the calculator apart to replace a foam pad to keep pressure on the plastic keyboard contact strip against the printed circuit board contacts.

Somebody (not me) put together an Instructables page for the HP 17B calculator, which is built exactly the same as the 32SII.

### Hp 32sII enter degrees minutes seconds

According to the "HP 32SII RPN Scientific Calculator Owner's Manual" (at the link below), you just need to treat degrees, minutes, and seconds conversions as hours, minutes, and seconds. Use the left-shift and right-shift keys together with the 5 key to convert to decimal-fraction form (D.d format) and to minutes-seconds form (DD.MMSSss), respectively.

### My HP35s keeps flashing MEMORY CLEAR. I removed the batteries and reset it with a paper clip. Nothing works.

I'm not sure if it is the only solution, but I had the same problem and I replaced the batteries. My HP35S works fine now.

Previously, however, there was no "battery" annuciator on the screen. This calculator went four years without a bettery change. My HP48GII, on the other hand won't go two months without a change. Go figure.

### Have new batteries but unit will not come on

Hello,
Adjust contrast : Hold down [C] key and press [+] to increase contrast or [-] to decrease it.

Diagnostic tests (from the Users manual)
1. Hold down [C] key and press [LN]; may have to repeat several times.
2. Press and hold down [C] key and press and hold down both the square root key AND the Sigma + key. When all keys are released, MEMORY CLEAR is displayed.
3. Remove batteries and lightly press a coin against both battery contacts in the calculator. Iy should say MEMORY CLEAR.

If these steps fail to restore calculator operation, it requires service.

Hope it helps.

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.
