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.

Key working alpha


The alpha key activates the alphabet keyboard and a few extra symbols. To access the MATH menu and the ToFrac command, press the key below the ALPHA key. The key is marked with MATH.
On the TI84PLUS with the newer operating systems (version2.5x), the APLHA key opens up a few functionalities. That is not available on the TI 83Plus.

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]

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.

Hi. I have 2 HP calculators (48S and 48GX)that both have the same problem. All of the soft keys, the on switch, and some function keys do not work unless I squeeze the calculator on the metal bezel just...


Hello,
I suppose you can have them repaired, but I suggest you purchase an HP49G+ or an HP50g. I own a 48g and just bought a second hand HP49G+. It is something else: larger screen, 75Mhz processor, about 1.5Mb RAM, an SD card slot (up to 2Gb), RPN, algebraic, and CAS modes, USB and IrDA connectivity, etc.You can even make them work as a 48gx with software from HP web site.
Note that repairing two discontinued models, with the possible scarcity of parts, may prove expensive.

Hope it helps.
