Hello,

This calculator uses RPN (reverse polish notation) not algebraic notation.
If say you want to calculate 12+13, you proceed as follows
12 [ENTER] 13 + : the claculator displays 25
Similarly
12 [ENTER] 13 x : displays 156

Also if you use a function like sinus or cosinus
12 [ENTER] cos displays the value (depending on the angle unit you are using).


I think you need to read a little more on the RPN before you get accustomed to this way of doing thing. The best reference is your calculator Getting started manual.


Hope it helps.

Turn the calculator over. Remove the pad on the right (as you look at the calculator). In the recess there is hole marked R. Use a straightened paper clip and insert it in the hole. Replace the pad.

My HP 48GX recently have ((.)) in the display. I thought that is the indicator of low battery. However, I replace battery new several times the same display still appears. Even after turn off...


Somehow an alarm got set. Execute the command ACK once and see whether the indicator goes away.

To enter the command, press and hold the ALPHA key, then press and release the A, C, and K keys in turn, then release ALPHA, and press ENTER. But you already knew that, didn't you?

Do you have anything on the stack? The DUP function duplicates the top element of the stack. If the stack is empty then you'll get this error because the calculator can't duplicate nothing.
