Re: DM41X Beta Programme

If your shift key is still yellow at the end of the beta test period, you will be severely punished by the beta police... :lol: I am just a basic user (no mcode, synthetic programming and such) but I use the DM41X several times each day. I even leave my regular calculator (HP 11C or 17Bii) at home ...

That's our common fate, I fear.
I already ordered (bright) yellow paint...

Re: Error message

That's correct. But the most common reason for getting this error is the Z register is supposed to contain the alarm repeat interval, which is rarely used (or remembered!) so most folks simply use DATE [Enter] TIME [XEQ] "XYZALM" thus submitting whatever was in the X register prior to thi...

Somehow my yellow shift key caught the bad vibes regarding its seemingly ugly color and decided to get rid of its coating... so mine is rapidly progressing towards black, too...
This is what mine looks like:

Re: Key assignments coding row/column

From my POV it is better suited where it is now: the bottom right corner, where it's always been. ;) I agree, having it at the corner makes sense. I'd rather have the keyboard layout try to follow the HP design ideas than the exact same layout (which is a challenge because of the extra keys anyway).

Re: Adding a wakeup delay on the ON button

I think that the provided pouch is simply too thin for traveling. I have had the same issue with my DM41X a few times, until I put it in a sturdy leather pouch. No more accidental key presses now.

Re: Error message

So far I cannot reproduce it unfortunately, but I do see something else (which may be normal). When I switch the calculator on, I briefly see two thin horizontal lines in the top of the display, like the display buildup is missing some lines. They are gone again within a fraction of a second.

Not here.
1. XEQ XYALM gives NONEXISTENT
2. DSP shows screen as expected
3. ON switches the calc off
It is XYZALM, but anyway, I cannot reproduce it, so there must have been some other condition as well.

Disk info shows 0 bad blocks.
