Press "f" then 2. The number you press after "f" sets the number of digits to the right of the decimel point.

"begin" is lit up whenever I turn on my HP12c. It won't go away. What is wrong?

No, they're not related.

Hi,

P12c display from Comma to Point This document describes how to change the display of the decimal point on the HP 12C (HP12C) Calculator from a comma (commas) back to a decimal point.
Instructions
1. Turn off the calculator.
2. Hold down the decimal point.
3. Continue to hold the decimal point key, while turning on the calculator.
The comma should change back to a decimal point.

### I just replaced the batteries in my HP 12C calculator and when I turned it back on the display looks like this 0,000. How do I get the display to show decimals instead of a comma?

Hello,
Here is what the manual for the HP 12C Platimum financial calculator says on page 17 of 275

Digit Separators
As a number is keyed in, each group of three digits to the left of the decimal point is automatically separated in the display. When the calculator is first turned on after coming from the factory — or after Continuous Memory is reset — the decimal point in displayed numbers is a dot, and the separator between each group of three digits is a comma. If you wish, you can set the calculator to display a comma for the decimal point and a dot for the three-digit separator. To do so,
turn the calculator off, then press and hold down the [ . ] key while you press [ON] Doing so again sets the calculator to use the original digit separators in the display.

Hope it helps.

### Wrong format for numbers displayed in HP 12C

It's been awhile since I used one of these but there should be a decimal function on the keys. Make sure you put a 2 in there before pressing it and it should display the format using 200.00
