Question about HP 19BII Calculator
When chaging the batteries of my HP 19BII I broke the "door" of the compartment of them. For this reason my equipment doesn't work any more because it is not possible to have it well adjusted in its place. How can I get this small piece to have my HP to work again?. In Brazil, where I live, I couldn't find this piece to replace the one which is broken. As you know it is an old model and the replacement of its parts is not easy to find.
I had the same problem and fixed it using a small woodscrew and washer to hold the battery cover in place. The screw is 10 milimetre in length with a 5 milimetre head which I have screwed into the calculator case in the gap where the missing edge has snapped off. I inserted the batteries and held the cover in place whilst I tightened the screw and washer so they overlapped the battery cover but held it in place.
To create the hole in the case, I used a very sharp nail as a nail punch, held the HP19BII in between my knees (to allow movement in case I hit it too hard) and tapped the nail into the plastic until it was fully pierced. I then wriggled the nail around to make the hole big enough for the screw to enter. NOTE - don't use a long screw as it might reach too far inside and damage the electronics.
Works a treat for me!
