Re: DM42 won't show up on PC

I have updated firmware several times and transferred files back and forth many times using my trimmed cable.
I have never had any issues. You should have no problems.

Re: DM42 won't show up on PC

The case of my DM42 was preventing my USB cable from seating fully into the socket. I had to trim a bit of the plastic off of the connector on my cable. It now works 100% of the time.

What kind of Battery life should I be expecting? Should it be comparable to a Pioneer or a Voyager? These are the only Coin Cell Type HP's I have experience with. I have a 15C and a 42S and the batteries last significantly longer than my DM42. I have had the DM42 for about a year and am on my fourth...

DM42 Keyboard Overlays - Update

I have found some thinner material for a possible keyboard overlay for the DM42. It is styrene sheet 0.20mm thick. My HP-41CV Overlay that came with the calculator measures 0.30mm thick. This material cuts very cleanly on the laser so it will look very professional. The samples shown in the photo ar...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

Two Weims ...? I think it was on the laser printing. Must have missed the template sent by Dani ... where can it be viewed? Thanks Yes. him. Page 40 of this forum. It is actually UV Cured inkjet printed on a suitable substrate and then laser cut. It could be removable or adhesive backed. It shouldn...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

This is really starting to shape up nicely! I have been lurking here for some time watching your progress. I would like to offer some help. I am in the laser engraving business. I have a Laser Cutter, a Direct to Substrate UV Printer, and a DM42. If you send me a dimensionally accurate image of the...
