Question about Texas Instruments BA-II Plus Calculator

# My BAII isnt calculating correctly

Hi,
I've had the same trusty BAII since college and now its not so trusty. Im taking the CFA soon and its calculating all the time value problems incorrectly. For example

PV= -3245
FV=0
n=6
i=12
Pmt= solve

My stupid calculator: \$559.91

Time to buy a new calculator or is this fixable?

the 2nd P/Y causes problems, i believe you have it set on 12 when it should be on 1

Change the payments-per-year to 1 to get the correct answer. Press 2nd [P/Y] 1 ENTER.

To pay off a loan of \$3245 at 12% annual interest, you can either make 6 monthly payments of \$559.91 and pay it off in half a year or make 6 annual payments of \$789.27 and pay it off in six years.

### Where is my CFj key?

There isn't one. The TI 30 is a scientific calculator. The cash flow functions are usually limited to the financial calculators such as the TI BAII.

### My calculator BAII Plus does not give correct answer when calculation is made what can I do?

Make sure all the settings are set the way you want them. Check especially the BEGIN/END setting and the P/Y value.

If this doesn't do it, could you reply to this post stating the exact values you're putting in and the answers you're getting?

### I am using Texas BAII Plus. The problem is when I try to calculate the NPV, N, PV,PMT, FY. it does not provide the right figure. It was ok until this morning. I think I might press something wrong....

Check the BEGIN/END setting (2nd [BGN]) and the number of payments per year (2nd [P/Y]). If these are set correctly, could you post the problem you're trying to solve, giving both your results and the expected results?

### Water damage

This is going to sound super dumb put leave it in a bowl of rice for a couple days. Rice will obsorbe the water. Also, change all five of the batteries(the 4 AAA ones and the back up battery). And if that doesn't work, you're pretty much out of luck. However, don't rush to the store and buy a new calculator. If you're in college or know someone that is in college, do what I do. Go to a math or sicence lab professor and ask them for a calculator at the end of the semester. I'm getting a new 89 pretty soon and i'm kinda excited. Good luck with your calculator

### Changing batteries and life span

It's written in the back of the calculator, mate ! A TI BA ii Plus uses a CR2032 battery, which is 3V, 60 micro A.
Just go to the shop and give them the battery model.
