« on: 24/08/2007 23:20:36 »
will you look at this ?

How can Sharp do this to me tonight when I need to know what 200 divided by 1.175 is ?

What has happened to my calculator ?...What's made it go like this ?



Dear American Sueing Society,

This has caused me great stress !!..it has made me reach across the room for my spare calculator causing me aggravated worry and the need to stretch !!

Do I have a case to sue Sharp for a billion dollars ?

It does seem to be a solar calculator.Mine have done this but usually on my battery powered units and replacing the low battery fixes it. If that is indeed the solar cell thingy I would say that she is probably shot! That looks like an older calculator, am I mistaken or is the ELSIMATE EL330L an older version and perhaps just worn out?
Have you had it since high school?

It does not come up in any of the sharp searches I did!..LOL Oh well does it take a battery? It seems solar to me am I wrong?

Neily I think it is worn out! LOL I thought it looked like an older model! LOL!!

Your so funny! I'll think they will bleed you dry like my van is doing .. they want to change the estimate today and say its not the fuel pump but the motor mounts and they want to charge me $1700.00 instead of $650.00 dollars.. yikes They said do you want to do a trade in...

Hey Neily, See if you can negotiate a trade in for your trusty friend! LOL

Neil, were you here in Texas anyone could tell you that there are roaches - baby ones - shorting out the display's electrical connections.

But I have no idea about the roach problem in the UK.

I hate it...on my pesky laptop I don't have a numeric keypad and in my case specifically I am referring to documents displayed on my screen anyway !

But thanks for the idea chummy.
