To switch the radix mark, turn the calculator off, press and hold the decimal point key, press the ON key, then release both keys.

It is not calculating because your decimal point and the digit separator (that's the comma which automatically displays for every group of 3 digits) got messed up. To clear, turn the calculator OFF, then press and hold down the dot (that is the decimal point symbol) key while you press the ON key..

My HP 12C is displaying with a comma rather than a decimal. I don't know how this happened and don' t know how to rid of the comma and return to a decimal. Please help.


Turn the calculator off. Press and hold down the decimal point while you press ON. The digit separator and radix sign will flip each time you do this.

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.

When I turn my 12c on it has a comma instead of a period.


Hello,
The comma is a three-digit separator that appears if number with many digits are displayed ( millions, billions). Since it is a financial calculator designed for money calculations, the comma can be helpful.
There is nothing in the manual that suggests that the three-digit separator can be removed. It can however be replaced by the point as in European Countries (especially France) where the decimal mark is the point and the three-digit separator the comma.

In short. I do not think you can get rid of the comma.

Hope you can learn to live with it.

500 x 16 reads 8.000,0 instead of 8,000.00


The calculator has two digit-separation marks: The dot [.] and the comma [,].
By default the decimal (radix) mark is the dot, and the comma serves as a 3-digit separator. In European countries (especially France) the radix mark is the comma and the 3-digit separator is the dot.

To switch the marks:
  1. Turn calculator OFF
  2. Press and HOLD the [.] key while pressing [ON].
