Hi there,

Normally, you can access them by pressing the "alt" key together with the key where the "symbols" are placed.

How to key in symbols that are located above numbers?

Hold down the "Shift" key and press that number with the symbol you want. Some keyboards only have an up arrow but it's not the same as the cursor keys that have up, down, right and left. There are always two of these and usually to the left of the Z key and right of the question mark key (makes all letter keys capitals). Sory to explain this like you don't know the shift keys but just want to cover all bases.

Trying to set Ethernet setting and the keyboard doesn't have the right symbols. : and % not there

On a US English keyboard the colon is one key to the right of the letter L. The percent symbol is above the number 5 on the top row of the keyboard not the numeric keypad on the right side. If these keys do not work then your keyboard is bad.

Which button do you push to enter negative numbers?

On the TI30X IIB the negative symbol is located one button to the right of the decimal place, just below the number 3.
To enter a negative number press the negative symbol "(-)" whose location was described above and then enter the positive form of the number. You will see the negative symbol on the screen indicating that the number is negative.

What do i press to be able to access the green symbols above my keys on a sharp EL-531VH

I can help you with your Sharp EL-531VH Scientific Calculator problem.

To access the symbols above the keys, press the '2nd' button first, then the button with the symbol you want. On my calculator the secondary functions are in orange, not green, but I suspect it is the same deal just a different color.

I have a digital copy of the manual for this unit - I will update this solution with a link after I have posted it to fixya.

I hope that helps.
