I've just unearthed my venerable HP48S for the first time in a while
(it's been little-used since my postgraduate days). The system is still
functional but the LCD is subject to bad vertical streaking,
particularly if the contrast is turned up high, as shown in

Any suggestions or should I resign myself to the fact that the
calculator's had its day?
