    Hey guys, I have a little bit of microcontroller programming experience but I was wondering, I need to alter the operation of a microcontroller already in use. Lets start small with something like a sophisticated calculator that uses a microcontroller, I want to change what it does or how it works. Any ideas/help?

    Yeah, reprogram it.

    Without more specific information our advice can only be quite general, other than to say this isn't an example of starting small.

    Assuming you can identify the controller, that its not entombed in a blob of resin, that it is actually a microcontroller and not a CPU with external ROM, or that the device is not code protected (which it almost certainly will be for any commercial product) and any ROM (internal or external) can actually be flashed / rewritten and is not a simple 'write once' device (which is again most likely), then yeah - what Steve said :)
