The BAII Plus comes from the factory set to assume monthly compounding. To fix this problem press 2nd then I/Y and enter 1 when prompted.

Were you also clearing the financial memory with 2nd [CLR TVM], or just the storage memory? If you don't, it's going to keep using whatever value you last used for PMT.

Haveing trouble getting the IRR using the BA II plus advanced business analyst. i am punching in the pv, fv, plus/minus pmt, and n. them computing the I. keeps giving me the wrong figure. The pv is 0, fv=...

I get 6.085%. Make sure the fv and pmt are of opposite signs. You're either making annual payments and getting a lump sum back at the end, or receiving annual payments and then paying it all back in a lump at the end. Either way, the money is moving in opposite directions.

Apparently you can't have both FV and PV positive. Try the calculation with one of them being negative.
