Why doesn't the equal button work when I do additions and subtractions?

Your calculator is fine. It is an adding machine first, so it uses adding machine logic and you hit the star button to print the total on the tape. The equals sign is only used when multiplying and dividing.

Adding machine logic is as follows:

5+ total 5
3- total 2
7+ total 9
* print out total

Good luck,

How do I get a total?

Every time you enter another number, when you hit the plus button, the new number that appears is your new total. If not, try the = button

The ribbon will only print red ink

While in the D position or PD position, N Count
is OFF. In the N Count N position every
Plus, Minus, Equals Plus, Equals Minus,
Memory Plus or Memory Minus key depression
is counted. The Accumulator and its N Count
or the GT N Count can be printed by
depression of the Subtotal or Total key. When
either Memory Subtotal or Memory Total is
depressed, Memory N Count will print. N Count
is always printed in red, left justified. If the
Equals key is depressed immediately after the
Subtotal Total, Memory Subtotal, or Memory
Total the average of the entries is printed.
When the N Count prints on the 7150, an audit
symbol will print to the left of the N Count.
The audit NA will identify the Accumulator
register N Count, NG will identify the GT
register N Count and NM will identify the
Memory N Count.

How do subtract on this calculator

To calculate 7-2=5 (for example) on a business calculator:
7 + (all positive entries are followed by the + key)
2 - (all negative entries are followed by the - key)
* (The Total key, marked with a star or a T finishes the calculation.)

It seems strange to people who use handheld calculators, but this is how adding machines have worked since the days of hand-cranked adding machines. The subtotal key (marked with S or a diamond) prints the running total without clearing it back to zero.

How do I print the total amount on my ticker tape of what I've added? I pressed the equals sign but that didn't work.

"OFF": Power OFF
"•": Power ON. Set to the non print mode.
"P": Power ON. Set to the print mode.
"P•IC": Power ON. Set to the print and item count mode.
1) For addition or subtraction, each time is pressed, 1 is added to the item
counter, and each time is pressed, 1 is subtracted.
• The count is printed when the calculated result is obtained.
• Pressing of , clears the counter.
2) When the grand total/rate setting mode selector is in the ON position (GT), the
counter will count the number of times that the calculation results have been
stored in the grand total memory. To print and clear the count, press the key.
3) The memory item counter will count the number of times that the key has
been pressed in the addition.
Note: • Each time the key is used in the subtraction, 1 will be subtracted from
the count.
• The count is printed when the memory is recalled.
• Pressing of the key clears the counter.
Note: The counter has a maximum capacity of 3 digits (up to ±999). If the count exceeds
the maximum, the counter will recount from zero.

Not printing decimals

Depending on the model there is often a switch that you can set the decimal on, often 1-6 places at the top.

Tring to subtract

With an adding machine, which is what this is, you enter the number followed by the + or -. If you wanted to add 10+20, you would enter 10 then + then 20 then +. This would show your answer. If you are using the printer and you wish to see the final answer on the paper, hit the * key and your answer will print.

If you are subtracting, let's say 100-40, you would enter 100 then + then 40 then - then *. Adding machines expect you to enter long strings of numbers to total. You may have both positive and negative numbers. So, you always enter the number first followed by either positive + or negative -.

You might have 100 + 25 - 37 - 1 + 50. For that enter:
100+25+37-1-50+ then *

Different than a calculator but the same for all "adding machines". This machine should really be called an adding machine since that is the kind of input it is looking for.
