Question about Sharp EL-531VB Calculator

1 Answer

Calculator will not recoginize decimal and double 00 keys

I have been able to use the decimal key to put in a date 1.21.2009 but it not longer does this. I don't know if someone flipped any of my positions on the mode selectors and where they should be.

Hello,
The EL-531V and EL-531VH calculators do not perform any computations on the date. Since I could not find the manual for the EL-531VB I cannot vouch for it. However, if it is a scientific calculator, it does not handle dates, but you can always press any sequence of keys, it is not guaranteed that it makes sense for the calculator.
Hope it helps.

the button can be replaced if you can find a tech, but once they start going it'll be one thing after another. Better to just get a new one.

The calculator is set to scientific notation. To change out of it, press and release the f key then the decimal point key and then a digit key representing the number of digits you want to the right of the decimal point.

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! :)
