DM41 keypad legend separating

Post by reavy » Wed Feb 07, 2018 9:17 pm

I've noticed that the keypad legend on my DM41 (small size) is separating in the middle near the Enter key. It bubbles up and makes an audible unsticking sound after any keys are pressed in that area.

Anyone else have an issue like this?

Use a hairdryer to heat it up for a few minutes then put some weight on it for several hours and it should be gone.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the reply. I did as you suggested with an adjustable heat gun and am letting the calculator sit overnight in a clamp. I'll check it in the morning.

After letting it sit overnight in the clamp and after using the heat gun, it stayed stuck on for about an hour and then came off.
