Re: Power sources

Why would you want that? The DM42 does hardly draw any power. So the battery lasts for years. I am still on my factory delivered battery. Expect to change the battery once every few years. One reason to use a power-bank might be if you want the faster operation whilst running from USB power? My nai...

Re: There's not an app for [WP43S/C] - yet...

You mean an Android app, or a desktop OS app? Either way, I imagine you would have to take the Free42 app source code, and tease apart the GUI element from the calculator core. Then do the same with the WP43 emulator source code, and try to fit its calculator core to the GUI element from your Free42...

The values in /rtccalib.cfg aren't quite in ppm. The PPM value is about 95.3674% of the calbration value.

Re: RTC Calibration program

Does anyone know at what point the ppm display under Setup — Settings gets updated, after changing the rtccalib.cfg file? I've just edited my file, changing from -21 to -22, but the display is still showing -21ppm. I've double-checked the file content (on a PC), turned the DM42 off/on a few times: s...

Re: BAT indicator stuck on

update: Michael kindly sent me a new board, and that's cured the issue (of course).

thanks for all the suggestions/help.


@mods: perhaps move this thread to "hardware"?

Re: BAT indicator stuck on

The new version has no intended change in this area, so that's curious indeed. Of course something odd could have happened by mistake, however since it appears that unit is not working 100% right anyhow, it's probably safer to conclude the problem, whatever it is, simply manifests differently with ...

Re: BAT indicator stuck on

update, for those following along at home… I've just updated to: DMCP v3.18t02 (IFC 03.13) DM41X v1.11t01 and was quite surprised to find that my BAT indicator is no longer stuck on. It was on before I performed the firmware update, but is not on now, including after a reset. However, I tried the se...
