    I have a Elsi Mate EL-334A that despite pushing multiple keys will not clear. A number 7 remains on the display. This is a solar calculator so no batteries to replace. Is there a manual reset button combination I could use?

    First of all ... I love, love, LOVE this calculator. I can't find a new one like it in stores. I don't want to have to replace it. The display is starting to act funny with missing lines or additional lines on the numbers (pressing a "1" looks the same as pressing a "7"). It's hard to decipher. I have not yet tried to replace the LR44X1 solar battery (that is listed on the back of the machine). I have kids so I do not know if it's gotten wet or if it has been dropped. I do know that it has survived their occasional use for almost 4 years. I keep it put away at my desk so I'm not sure what happened. :( Would love any suggestions as to how to fix the problem!

Did this machine get wet? Or was it dropped? It sounds like the lcd display is either damaged or defective! John

Easy. Press M- key [has RATE SET] above it. This will shown your current setting say 17.5. Amend to 20.0 and Press M- key again. Rate should now be set at 20%.
Test by entering:
100 and pressing +TAX key - Answer should be 20.
100 and pressing -TAX Key - Answer should be 83.33

I have a Sharp elsi mate EL-1611P and I am trying to get out of the P.E mode. How?

Push as many buttons at the same time as possible. Throw the calculator on the floor. That should do it.

The calculator is intermittent: Most of the time

Not knowing what to do, I tried anything that could possibly help:

I installed fresh batteries and I pushed the reset button on the back of the calculator (Sharp EL-546L) and finally, it work all right after more than 5 years I own the calculator and where it did work correctly for 5 minutes. I tried the reset button in the past (long time ago) and it didn't work. This time it worked because, maybe, I've used fresh batteries.

EL 1801V - how to set time/date?

To change the date, enter the date in MM.DD.YY format, pressing the decimal key between the month and day (will show as a decimal on the display) and the day and year (will show as a dash on the display). Then, press the Time/Date key (the one that looks like a clock and a calendar). The new date will show on the display. Note that if the month is less than 10, you do need to press the 0 (zero) key for the first digit, even though it will not show on the display. To change the time, enter the time in 24-hour HH.MM format, pressing the decimal key between the hour and minute. Then, press the Time/Date key. The new time will show on the display. Note that if the hour is less than 10, you do need to press the 0 (zero) key for the first digit, even though it will not show on the display. Hope this helps! :)

If the model is EL-2125 , and not 2125C or 2125E the following will work

1)switch on
2)press CE and then CA (you should see 0. with small 00 in top left hand corner but nothing else)
3)press M- button (rate set button),current tax rate 17.50% will appear with tax at left hand side
4) type new rate eg 15.00 (making sure to hit the decimal and two zeros, tax at the left and % should still be on the screen)
5) press M- (rate set button) (small 00 will appear in top left hand corner)
6) press = ( new rate and G will appear small 02 in top left hand corner and = sign below it)

hope this works for you, please let me know either way

Sounds like the printwheels are out of time. Sorta of major repairs. gears on side of printer have to be lined up in proper areas. there are small black arrows on the gears. Best bet is look at a working machine and try to line up. Machine may not be worth the time unless you jsut want to try it. Sharp uses the same printers in many different models.

Need to change tax function on Sharp EL-334A

I had the same problem and finally figured it out. Here's what you do:

Press C-CE twice
Press +TAX (Rate set)
Key in your new tax rate as an integer (e.g. 5)
Press +Tax (Rate set) again
Press C-CE

Then you're ready to calculate with the new rate!

Now what's the GT button for?
