Question about HP 32sII Calculator

1 Answer

HP 32 won't work

Thank you for publishing the manual for this calculator!
Looking at the manual under 'troubleshooting', it refers you to Page A-4 which says:
The calculator won't turn on (steps 1–4) or doesn't respond when you press the keys (steps 1–3):
1. Reset the calculator.
Hold down the X key and press X. It may be necessary to repeat these reset keystrokes several times.
2. Erase memory.
Press and hold down X, then press and hold down both X and X, Memory is cleared and the message is displayed when you release all three keys.

Thing is I added the X's where ther is a blank in the page, as I suspect these were graphics of the keys in the original printed manual? Can anyone please tell me what these keys are?
Thank you David J Power

    Thank you oldnovii!

    Having the ACTUAL HP manual (now saved on my hard drive) nstead of FixYa's text version has enabled me to see which key's to press, which has solved my immediate problem.

    Unfortunately, pressing the keys doesn't achive the desired outcome!

    I have yet to replace the battereis, which will be my next step when I can get to the shops

    Regards and thanks again DJP

    Happy birthday mate, glad to honour your request!

    and yes, you DID 100% answer my actual query, even if the answer has not solved my underlying problem (but that is in no way your fault!)

    Hope you have a wonderful year

    Just a followup

    In the end it was the batteries, they still had some life but the HP seems to need really strong ones.

    New silver oxide cells have restored my beast to life!

    Thanks again oldnovii

    I have an HP 32s and I can't get it to turn on. I changed out the batteries and that did not solve the problem. I accidently dropped the calculator on my desk and I believe that is why it is not working. Is there anything I can do?

    Only 1 battery required, I seem to remember there was some keys I had to hold down when I changed the battery, but I cannot remember- can u help?

    Hey Dave , it's the end of the month and we are judged on our ratings. Plus it's my birthday for 34 more minutes (no lie) Do you think you could find it in your heart of hearts to change that rating to fixed? It would be GREATLY appreciated. I did do the work for you.

Hi, the manual describes how to use positive powers , but am try to locate the negative powers and unable to do so. eg 2 to the power of minus 10. Can you direct me the page. thanks

Make sure you use the +/- key and not the - key to enter negative numbers. For your example, press 2 SHIFT [y^x] 1 0 +/- =

Refer to the "Negative Numbers" in the "Getting Started" section of the manual (page 24 in my copy).

3. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP fax product.

4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the HP fax product and from the electrical
outlet, and then wait one minute.

5. Reconnect the power cord to the electrical outlet.

6. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the HP fax product.

8. Reconnect the USB cable to the back of the HP fax product.

Hello I am wanting an instruction manual for a Casio LR54x1 Calculator. Thanks Louise

LR54x1 is not the the model number of your calculator. It is the reference of the button battery you calculator uses.
Check your number model and then go to Casio support page, click on "Calculators", agree to the Terms and Conditions, and look for your calculator.
If your calculator isn't listed, download the manual for the SL-450L under Standard Calculator. It will probably be suitable for your calculator too.
