I should set fire to the feckin' thing. Used to have this problem with my Jurassic Casio calculator. Before that it was failing LEDs on my Texas Instruments one.

Might be a red herring but they can do weird things if the battery is low.

I noticed mine was on a completely random time a few months ago, but it reset OK and has been fine since.
