HP50G.........character display light black, not dark black color

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi all,

 

I have a new HP50G that I bought and rarely used.

 

The character display seems to be a bit washed out.

 

Does this mean my HP50G is on its' way out?

 

Thanks,

Stefos

 

P.S. Any advice would help 🙂

One possibility is that the user-adjustable display contrast is set too low.  It can be adjusted by pressing and holding down the ON key, then pressing the + or - key to raise or lower the contrast, respectively.  In an emergency, a master clear (press and hold down ON, then press and hold down A, then press F, then release all three keys) clears all main memory but not port memory, and resets the display contrast to its original factory default.

 

Another possibility is low batteries, maybe.

Hi and thanks,

 

I don't know if it's just my eyes or not.

 

The LCD contrast is good but the letters are not dark enough.

 

That's the issue.

 

Thanks,

Stefos
