Question about Canon P23-DH Calculator

1 Answer

Won't print/feed If I set the calculator to print, it tries to feed but just spins and the "E" shows up in the lower left hand corner of the display. I have tried to reset the calculator, but that doesn't seem to work. I can press the CE button and it will only spin the feeder and then automatically displays the "E" again and will not allow me to do any calculations. If I take it off of print and just to the ON setting, then it is fine and allows me to do calculations. Any suggestions before I throw it in the garbage?

Try removing the batteries in addition to reseting the calculator.

I will be adding up multiple things, it is printing great, and then the screen goes blank except for a small "e" appears in the lower left hand corner and I have to start all over. WHY?

our calculator is beyond repair. You can use it in no print mode ohly. The printer is not working, causing the error code.

Turn it off and back on and only use the display mode.

When I push the feed button, an E shows up in the left hand corner of the display.

The E is an indicator that the Paper Spool is EMPTY so either the paper sensor is defective or You have forgotten about a "bar" that the Paper must go through to be sensed. Or Your Feed motor has fed it's last. Best of Luck!

You have entered something that takes more numbers than the calculator can handle...hit the clear key (C) I think...or turn it off and then on again.

I want to know how to not have two additional 00's in the right hand corner of my DS 700 calculator

You're seeing an exponent, the power of ten.
To have the calculator not display this (unless the number won't fit into the display otherwise), press MODE repeatedly until the screen shows "Fix Sci Norm". Press 3 to select Norm.

Flashing asterick in lower left of screen; ever since will not correctly calculate PV or PMT

I believe there are two separate issues here.
The asterisk in the lower left corner of the screen is the low-battery indicator. Put in a fresh set of batteries and that will go away.
As for not getting the correct results, are you sure you have all the modes set correctly? Could you post a sample problem, with the results you get and the results you expect to get?

How to feed paper roll into calculator

Installing the Paper Roll
Caution: Avoid placing a double thickness of paper into the mechanism.
Do not pull the paper through the mechanism without pressing feed button.
1. If necessary, press on to turn the calculator on, and press P
to turn the PRINT display indicator off.
2. Remove the printer compartment cover by placing a thumb on each of the lower ridged corners of the cover. Push until the cover pops open, and lift the cover off.
3. Unroll a few inches of paper from the small roll and cut the end squarely.
4. Hold the paper so that it unrolls from the bottom, and insert the end of the paper into the slot under the printing mechanism.
5. Press feed button until the paper feeds out of the top of the printer compartment.
6. Place the small roll of paper inside the compartment.
7. Feed the end of the paper through the slot behind the clear plastic "window" of the printer compartment cover. Then snap the compartment cover back onto the unit.

TI 84 plus calculator, flashing dot in upper left hand corner


When you turn the calculator on, its screen is cleared, save for a small square on the top left corner. This is the cursor and it is blinking: The calculator is waiting for you to order it to perform some calculation.

Try this simple operation
[1] [+] [1] [ENTER]. The calculator will display the result one line down justified to the right.

Hope it helps.
