Re: DM42 License Statement

That's great news indeed.
I am happily looking forward to receiving my DM42 in the next few days. :-)

Re: [DM41L V26] Need to press ON twice to turn on

Oh well.
Now I can't reproduce the bug anymore. The DM41L always turns on on the first button press now - except this morning, when it needed 5 or so tries. So maybe it's just a bit of dirt inside the button, paired with a bit of coincidence.
Sorry for the confusion...

Re: [DM41L V26] Need to press ON twice to turn on

Just out of curiosity, I restored the unmodified memory dump I made before resetting, and the problem was back. Interestingly, just restoring the "cleaned" version did not fix it. Restoring the "cleaned" version after pressing the reset button did. It hasn't occured for several days now, so I think ...

Re: [DM41L V26] Need to press ON twice to turn on

Okay,
I saved a memory dump, removed everything except the programs (using http://dm41.swissmicros.com/) and restored it after a hard reset (using the reset button).
That seems to have fixed it. :-)

Re: Question about "what goes where" while flashing firmware

FWIW, I've been working with different microcontrollers for more than 10 years now, and I have never had one go bad on me because of flash wear, even with excessive reprogramming and/or EEPROM use.
Yes, it can happen, but I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Re: [DM41L V26] Need to press ON twice to turn on

So, first time you press ON, nothing happens. Second time it works? Yes, exactly. But not every time - especially when the calculator has not been turned off for long, it usually works on the first press. The timespan that the calculator needs to be turned off before the problem occurs seems to var...

[DM41L V26] Need to press ON twice to turn on

Hi, I noticed that on my DM41L (Firmware V26) I sometimes need to press ON two times to turn it on, especially after it has been off for a while. After that the ON key works reliably and I can turn the calculator on and off repeatedly without any issues, so it feels like this is not a problem with t...

Re: Casing not snug in the centre

My DM41L has that too, but only very slightly. It gets worse if you overtighten the mainboard screws a bit.
Definitely not 0.5 mm though, maybe 0.2 at most, in my case, so I don't mind.

Not everybody has that curiosity. Some people buy a calculator because they need something to help them in their job or hobby rather than because they want it to be that hobby.
And that's perfectly fine, too. :-)
