    my calculator is printing odd symbols and will not print the correct total.

  • shaasbs Dec 01, 2008

    Same problem. Happened after I changed print cartridge. I put in a tech support email to Canon. Will respond back with answer once it is received. - Sue H.

    Canon Tech Support never emailed so I called. They suggested to unplug the calculator wait at least 15 seconds them simultaneously press the reset button while plugging in the unit. This did not work for me and neither did multiple resets. Tech support suggested that the was something possibly wrong with the roller and suggested I send in for warranty repair.

SOURCE: reset?

Okay, I did what the best solution did and worked with it.

"1. press 2nd F (left top corner)
2. ENG/FIX (the button next to 2nd F)
3. press 0 (if you don't want calculator to round off any decimals)"

In order to get your exact value of pi, in step #3, instead of 0, press the decimal [ . ]
This should give you no decimals when entering a number and give you 3.141592654... when you input pi.
Hope that works/helps.

SOURCE: i cant make the decimal mode work (5000=50.00)

At the top of the keypad area, there is a switch with the following above it: +023F. Leave the switch in the + position and it should automatically place the decimal 2 postions, i.e. enter 5000 and the display will show up 50.00.

SOURCE: my calculator will add, but

If your calculator is more of an adding machine it works a little bit differently than a calculator. For an example: 10 + 5 - 2 on your machine do the addition of 10 + 5, then to subtract the 2 press 2 then the minus sign to get the total of 13. I hope this is helpful.

Use of the add mode permits addition and subtraction of numbers without entry of the decimal point. Use of , and will automatically override the add mode and decimally correct answers will be printed.

Can't get sum


Hello, my name is Curtis, and I am a Sharp Customer Service Rep. On this particular calculator some of the procedures to add, subtract, multiply, and divide can be confusing. To add and subract, if you want to print, set the switch to P-I, and enter in an amount such as ( 1+1 ) to print out the total you need to press the asterisk or the * button. To simply view the anser just press the + key again. the same goes with subtranction. The = sign is only used for multiplication and Division. If you have any problems or want someone to verbally explain this then please contact our Free Technical Support line at 1-800-237-4277 or 1-800-BE-SHARP

Tring to subtract


With an adding machine, which is what this is, you enter the number followed by the + or -. If you wanted to add 10+20, you would enter 10 then + then 20 then +. This would show your answer. If you are using the printer and you wish to see the final answer on the paper, hit the * key and your answer will print.

If you are subtracting, let's say 100-40, you would enter 100 then + then 40 then - then *. Adding machines expect you to enter long strings of numbers to total. You may have both positive and negative numbers. So, you always enter the number first followed by either positive + or negative -.

You might have 100 + 25 - 37 - 1 + 50. For that enter:
100+25+37-1-50+ then *

Different than a calculator but the same for all "adding machines". This machine should really be called an adding machine since that is the kind of input it is looking for.
