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
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.

The calculator battery may be weak. Replace 3 AAA cells and check if it works.
It is possible that sweat from your or someone else's hands hand leaked inside and dried up leaving a salt residue between the connections.
Remove the screws on the back panel to dismantle your calculator then use a piece of paper to clean the contacts between the top and bottom connector.
If you cannot get this done then take it to a watch repair shop. The person there can assist you.

Hi, if pressing on and F5 together immediately starts the selftest your keyboard is OK, but one of the capacitors on the HP49G PCB are broken. I replaced all three and the turn on/off problem was gone.
Hope this helps.
