Adding machine can't set date & time. When I press the = sign date starts flashing I can change it but I cannot lock it in. When I press the date time button it reverts to the old time.

My machine goes this way-
Hit time/date button.
then enter in date (ie) 11.16.2009--INCLUDE DECIMAL!!!
Then hit time/date button again,

I am still working on the time issue, I just cant seem to remeber, I know it is done off military time.

I played around with mine and found the keys that you change the time and date with by looking over the top of the keyboard. On my model there is a time and date key that has a little calendar and clock actually on the key. That key allows you to switch between date and calendar. After you click on that button you will either see a date or time. To change those numbers use the following keys: The equal (=) key will change date and time by holding the key down till the numbers on the display start to flash. Once they start to flash use the number keys to make your changes. The multiplication (X) key you can use to change am and pm. If you want military time use the division key. If you are changing the date there is an additional key that lets you change the format. What this means is the sequence on the display by the way you view the month, date and year. You can change it so year shows first then month and date or interchange day and month. Once I found those keys it was easy.
