calculator not calculating

HP 48gx

My 48GX has been faithful for 20+ years; however, recently it has failed at doing basic calculations. The arithmatic functions no longer respond or the backspace button, the one with drop above it. I've tried resetting several times, removed batteries/reinstalled. Nothing works could it be dirty/worn-out contacts?

The board selection seems incomplete.

Yes.

 

Or, a slobbering dog.

Or, being a "throw-toy" by the grandchild.

Or, neutrinos from the sun.

Or, a spilled "double-double" -- the dried-up cream and the sugar can "gum" up the works.

 

Only 20 years ???  :LaughingTears:

 

I once worked in Sears Hardware -- a customer brought in a Craftsman socket-wrench that he said he bought from Sears, over 40 years ago, only to show how long it lasted, before it had gotten a liitle "loose". My manager honoured the "lifetime" guarantee, and replaced it.  After 40 years!  That was one happy, and surprised, customer!
