DM15L-Benchmark startup never stops + screen metal plate rises

Post by OlidaBel »

Hi,
This happened today, I started a Benchmark on the DM15L (ON+B), then it never stopped 'running'.
I couldn't stop it with different key combinations.
After 15 min I decided to gently push a paperclip on the reset button (back side).
Hopefully I saved my last big program yesterday with the HP-15C simulator (https://hp-15c.homepage.t-online.de/content_web.htm).
Strange enough, it was not the first time I started wih a Benchmark.

I have another (annoying) issue with this DM15L, the metal plate around the screen is not well glued on the left side, sometimes I have to push it down. I think there is a lack of glue somewhere.. :?

I'm not sure about the never-ending benchmark.

The button overlays are known to unstick over time. Gently heating the plate, clamping it down, and letting it cool can sometimes help. Otherwise, you can remove the plate, gently clean all the adhesive and manufacturing residue, and re-stick the plate down with new adhesive tape. Additionally, SM may be able to send you a replacement with new adhesive if you ask.
