Question about HP 48gx Calculator

1 Answer

When I turned on my 48gx a month ago some of the alpha keys did not work. Today most of the keys(alpha,numeric as well as functions) don't work. I've owned this unit for over 7 years and have barley used it. Is their a repair manual I can buy? Who repairs 48gx's?. Thanks. Nino ninomadrid888@aol.com

Hello,
Before thinking of repairs, you should first determine if it needs repairs.
You can reset the calculator:

Turn the back of the calculator towards you. Extract the top left rubber pad on the back of the calculator and use a paper clip to press the Reset button. If that does not restore the calculator to health, you should perform the dagnostic tests.

The following procedure valid for the 48G should work for the HP48GX.
Make the calculator perform a
Self test.

  1. Turn calculator on
  2. Press and HOLD the key [ON]
  3. Press and release the key with "E" to its right (the one before last in first row)
  4. Relaese the [ON] key.
It tests the RAM and ROM. You will see various patterns on screen. Afterwards you should see
IROM OK,
IRAM OK,
HP48GX OK
The self test will continue repeatedly until you perform a
System Halt
  1. Press and HOLD the [ON] key
  2. Press and release the "C" key
  3. Release the [ON] key.
The empty stack should appear.

If you do not see IROM OK and IRAM OK, the calculator requires service.

If the above procedure is successful, you may want
to test the keyboard.
  1. Turn calculator on
  2. Press and HOLD the [ON] key
  3. Press and release the "D" key.
  4. Release the [ON] key
  5. Press and release the "E" key. KBD 1 should appear on the top left corner of the screen.
  6. Starting at the upper left corner of the keyboard, and moving Left to right, press every key in sequence. If you follow the sequence and the keys are functioning properly you should hear a hight pitch sound at each press.
  7. If everything is OK, when you press the last key (+) the screen displays KBD 1 OK.
To exit the keyboard test proceed as described above under System Halt.

If you follow the proper sequence and a hexadecimal number appears after pressing a key, the calculator requires service.
Hope it helps.

    If calculator requires repairs,



    There is an HP customer self repair (CSR) which you can
    contact. On the site it is said that the service is available for
    products under warranty or on contract. but you have nothing to lose by
    contacting them. Here is the link to the web site.





    - You can also try this site. They do repairs on most models, except the newer ones.

'tab' button doesn't work on Motorola MC3190


You get 3 different keypad models of the Motorola MC3190:
- 28 Key Numeric
- 38 Key Shifted Alpha
- 48 Key Alpha Numeric

So depending on the type of keyboard your model has, using TAB are different across these 3 keypads.

Please Note: Keypad functions can be changed by an application so the mobile computer keypad may not function as described.

When the FUNC button is pressed the icon "F" appears on the taskbar on WinCE devices or the icon "Blue Circle" appears at the bottom of the screen on Windows Mobile 6.1 devices.

In order to use the TAB function, do the following:

28 Key Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Bottom right next to Power button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

38 Key Shifted Alpha - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below RIGHT ARROW button), and press the RIGHT ARROW button.

48 Key Alpha Numeric - Press the blue FUNC button (Right side below ENTER button) and press the number 9 button.

My HP 48GX recently have ((.)) in the display. I thought that is the indicator of low battery. However, I replace battery new several times the same display still appears. Even after turn off...


Somehow an alarm got set. Execute the command ACK once and see whether the indicator goes away.

To enter the command, press and hold the ALPHA key, then press and release the A, C, and K keys in turn, then release ALPHA, and press ENTER. But you already knew that, didn't you?

How do you enter fractions into the ti-84 plus?


It depends on the version of the Operating system.
This works for Older and newer OS
Enter numerator, press the [division key], enter the denominator, press the [MATH] key and select [1:ToFrac] [ENTER]
k24674_118.jpg
With the newer OS versions 2.53 MP and following you can manipulate fraction more easily. If your calculator MODE is set to MathPrint, you can use the [Alpha][Function keys] to access some functionalities
k24674_119.jpg
This gives you access to the Tabs shown in the following screen capture.
k24674_120.jpg
Press 1:n/d for improper fractions or 2:Un/d for mixed numbers.
Press [ALPHA][Y=/F1] to activate the FRAC menu. You get a template for a stacked fraction, where you enter the numerator and denominator at their right places. Note that fractions are always reduced to their simplest forms.

I NEED A MANUAL TO SHOW HOW TO GET MULTIFUNCTION KEYS TO WORK. FOR EXAMPLE HOW DO I GET THE ALTERNATE USE OF THE "NUMERIC 6 "KEY ie THE" QUESTION MARK" FUNCTION


You must have a different keyboard selected other than the standard US keyboard My numeral 6 has ^ on it and the numeric keypad 6 has a right arrow. One generally uses the SHIFT key to access symbols that are written above the main alpha or numeric key. The numeric keypad on side of PC has a button labeled key marked NUMLOCK that is engaged to allow use of the numerals as a calculator or to also be inserted into text.

Begin New Rule
Specific String At Start
$ (from the Alpha-Numeric section of the guide)

Create a barcode for F1 and F2 using Labelview


If you have created your barcodes as "F1" and "F2" you will have to create two Advanced Data Formatting rules with the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. This link will take you to the manual. Print only the barcodes you need from the list below then scan them in the order they are listed:
Begin New Rule
Specific String at Start
F (from the Alpha-numeric section of manual)
1 (from the Alpha-numeric section of manual)
End of message (from the Alpha-numeric section of manual)
Send F1 Key
Save Rule
Begin New Rule
Specific String at Start
F
2
End of Message
Send F2
Save Rule

That should do it!
