Diagnostics

Note that diagnostic tests generally delete any data on the calculator. Be sure to back up any important information held in the calculator before running these tests.

Turn calculator off, press and hold X (multiply) key and then press ON key, then release X key. Display will show "running" for about 20 seconds, and if tests pass, all display elements will be on. Press any key to exit test. For keypad test, use divide key instead of X key, and then press each key in turn (will show "Error 9" if out of sequence).

Replacements:

If you have a Hewlett-Packard HP 11C that is no longer working, you can first try replacing the 3x1.5V cell batteries. If that doesn't solve the problem, then you can consider replacing the calculator with a modern equivalent. We suggest the following current model as a replacement:
