Nothing happens when I press a number??

My Sharp EL-531-WH display has a 'P' next to the '0'. I press a number and nothing shows on the display. Is there a lock button or something I have to press to unlock it??

Hello,
There is no lock button. Calculator may be configured to be in computational mode you are not familiar with: It may be set to do base calculation on base 5, hence the p (pental). Press the reset button on the back, and the default configuraion will be restored.
You should give some time to learn the different mode of calculations.
Hope it helps.

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! :)

Alarm keeps beeping, reads 0


Try testing it first. Press the test/reset button. If it's operating properly on the display:
"GAS" - and it should beep 3 times. Then a number should appear on the display. It should be arround 200. Then it should beep 4 quick times, then nothing for 5 seconds, then 4 quick beeps that keep repeating. It will then show 3 numbers again for a few seconds. When they're gone it will be done resetting. It should show a flashing red light and a 0 or whatever the reading might be. Try this and let me know what happens. If this fixes the problem please rate as fixed. If not, please don't rate yet. Let me know what's going on and I'll be more than happy to help. Thanks.
