If you have the same one I have, the Basix BX-PC 102 12 digit printing calculator it doesn't use a ribbon. (maybe that's why there's so inexpensive) It uses an ink roll - IR 40T. I'm searching for one locally now and can't find it. It seems you have to order them online.

I lost the sensitivity because of some moisture formed inside the screen.. How much it costs to replace the screen?

Hi,before replacing the screen,why don't you dry out the LCD screen to get rid of the moisture,you can use a hand dryer to dry out the moisture of the screen after taking it out.If after drying the screen the problem remains,then you can go ahead to get a new screen.
Here is a detailed step on how to dissassemble your P1i;
STEP 1 Tools required: Torx 6 screwdriver, Phillips size 0 screwdriver
  • First remove the battery cover, battery, memory card and stylus. Remove the three screws you see
STEP 2 Run your fingernail around the join of the back cover and then pry the back cover off
STEP 3 Now remove the two screws you can see at the top of the phone
  • Now run your fingernail along the join of the front cover and you'll hear the clips, which hold the cover on, click. The front cover is on quite tight so use some force to pry the cover off
STEP 5 Remove the keypad and lift the part underneath from right to left, this will reveal two more screws. Remove these screws
STEP 6 Remove the metal plate that the screws were holding in place and you now have access to the ribbon which attaches the screen to the circuit board
  • Detach the ribbon to remove the LCD screen. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift the ribbon up away from the circuit board to detach it
STEP 8 You have now removed the LCD screen then you dry, Reverse the whole process to reassemble. However,the LCD screen costs $92.if you have the reason to purchase it.
Thanks and take care

You might try the office places (Office Depot, Staples, etc.). There are also online sources for ribbons. Here's one that came from a Google search for "typewriter ribbons". There were a few more, but this one had nice pictures.

Good luck with the hunt! Thanks for using Fixya.

Shredder runs continuously in AUTO position. It appears to use a photoelectric sensor for AUTO activation. I cleaned the window once with a swab and windex. It worked for a few days but is doing it again...

There are three reasons why:
1. paper particles or oil are still causing the optics to think you are inserting paper. Remove cover and clean thoroughly!
2. Optics are misaligned.
3. Optics are defective.

Remove 2 screws from the left scanner cover, disconnect the flat ribbon cable from the formatter (main board). There are 2 silver self tapping screws in the rear and 1 each on the side of the unit that need removed. Slide the scanner section forward slightly and lift off.
