Re: buttons that don't register well

Got my calculator back today. So far so good, it feels much improved. Glad to hear the good news! Thanks for posting the update. The ENTER key has improved, but it's not a perfect fix. At least it's a bit better. I was skeptical that it could be fixed 100%. I'm not sure what the solution is here. I...

ETA: Michael was very generous and offered to repair/replace as needed. My DM42 is off to SM. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out!
That's great! Please post an update once you receive the new or repaired DM42. I'm mostly curious to find out if your ENTER key is fixed.

Re: buttons that don't register well

I also considered adding a washer of some kind for the screws holding the PCB in place. I've noticed that the keys in general and especially the ENTER key feels better when the screws are looser. But loosening the screws too much results in them unscrewing during use and falling out. A washer would ...

Re: buttons that don't register well

Hi Meino, I agree that the knobs on the underside of the keys should be centered to contact the center part of the domes. When I swapped the domes as previously mentioned, I took great care in their positioning. I actually tried moving the domes to optimize the contact point several times until I wa...

Re: buttons that don't register well

I think each metal dome has its own unique action, or click response. I assume this because I swapped my right ENTER dome, which clicked loudly with my EXIT dome, which was too mushy. The result is that the EXIT key now clicks nicely and my ENTER key (on the right side) feels much, much better. Mayb...

DM42 Back Cover Material

On the SM website models page, it states that certain models have "sandblasted Grade 1 Titanium housing". Is the material used for the back cover of the DM42 the same? Or something different?

Re: My Calculator DM42 ist arrived ;-)

My wife received her DM42 in early February. I ordered mine a few weeks later. As someone with two units to compare, I thought I'd share my thoughts. First off, I have really been enjoying working with the DM42! Moreover, my experience with SwissMicros has been outstanding, and I will be recommendin...
