Hi, the main breaker connection on my siemens bos becomes loose. I,ve changed it about 2 years ago because of that problem and when I removed the front panel today, It came loose again cutting down on the power(light bulb at half intensenty). I played a bit with it and it came back one ok but When I try to put back the front panel, it does it again. Tx!

Low voltage in 110 recepts. and 110 in 220 outlet, could 100 feed breaker be problem. breaked is 25+ years old


The breaker could be the problem. I take it that you have a meter, you can pull off the panel cover and check the line side of the main breaker ( the side from the power company) be VERY carefull as you cannot turn of the power to this side of the breaker!!! Form one wire to the other on the breaker you should have roughly 220 volts. From one on the breaker to the ground/nuetral bar you should have roughly 110 volts. I f you do not have 220 across the two wires on the breaker its the power company you need to call if the 110 voltage is not right you may have a loose ground/nuetral... Just be VERY CAREFULL!!!! Hope this helps you

I have a Casio fx4500 calculator and have replaced both batteirs with the new ones but it still says low battery everytime i turn it on.what seems to be the problem? Thanks


Seems to be a common problem on this otherwise great calculator that helped me through both high school and university. I've had mine for nearly 20 years and this problem showed up a few years ago. But I remember classmates reported the same problem when it was almost new.

If replacing batteries isn't helping, the problem is most likely caused by oxidation on the springs connecting the battery holder to the main PCB. The solution is as follows:

1. Remove the metal back cover (2 screws)
2. Remove the plastic back lid by removing the black screws (leave the batteries mounted) and CAREFULLY slide the back lid to the lower end (where the EXE button is located). Do not lift while sliding until the lid easily comes off.
3. On the back side of the plastic lid, very carefully bend the the two metal connectors ~1 mm on both batteryholders to increase their tension.
4. Clean the connecting pads on the PCB and the metal springs with de-oxidizer solvent.
5. Re-assemble and your 4500P calculator should be good as new.

Main breaker tripping


get acceess or rent an amp clamp meter with a "max hold" and clamp it on each line wire coming into the box (if you're not experienced in this hire an electrician being tht it can kill you if not done correctly and safely) when it blows check amps to each "leg" and see if it is over 200 amps. if it is under, the main breaker should be replaced . If it is over, clamp it on the "hot" side of each
circuit that you suspect may be pulling too much. If this all comes out ok, have the main service connections to the main breaker checked for being tight. This is a last resort, but I'
ve seen them heat up from being loose and then throw the main. The over all amps could be pulling too much, but it takes alot of things running at the same time to throw a 200 amp main.

Goodd luck!
