Calculator is showing all zeros

Hi there,

Press SETUP and choose 0 for FSE. Then choose 3 for Norm 1. This will put the calculator back to the original setting.

DEG says that the angle unit is set to degrees. You can change it to RADians, or GRADs. However much you want to get rid of all of them you will always have one of them. Learn to live with them.

FIX says that the decimal displays will always show a fixed number of decimals.** You can decide how many you keep. **Apparently your calculator is configured not to show any decimal digits: the number of fixed digits is set to zero. Change it to some other number

There are other display formats : Engineering ENG, and Scientific (SCI)

There is another format (possibly 2) called Norm 1 or Norm 2.

Set you calculator to one of the Normal formats.

Press** SHIFT MODE** to enter **(Setup)** and configure.

Advice: Learn to use your calculator. The best way to achieve mastery is to look inside the manual whenever you do not understand something.

Press MODE to bring up the mode editor. On the fourth line, highlight "FUNC". Press ENTER to save the change and 2ND [QUIT] to exit the mode editor.

There seems to be two completely different issues here.

By default the calculator will try to show a symbolic result. 1 divided by 120 is 1 over 120, after all. If you don't want to see fractions at all, press SHIFT MODE 2 to switch to the LineIO mode.

The other is the display mode. 1/120 is about 0.0083. Again, by default, the calculator automatically switches to scientific notation for numbers whose magnitude is less than .01, so it shows the number as 8.3x10-3. To change this, you have two choices. Press SHIFT MODE 6 to select the fixed decimal mode, and the calculator will prompt for the number of digits to the right of the decimal. Alternatively, press SHIFT MODE 8 2 to select the Norm2 mode. This won't switch to scientific notation until the magnitude of the number drops below 10-9.

Calculators only have two choices when a number gets close to zero. It can either round it off to zero, or switch to scientific notation. It doesn't matter how many digits the calculator can display, at some point it has to make the choice.

Press [SHIFT][MODE] to access (SETUP). Select [6:Fix]. then enter a number between 0 and 9. That will determine how many decimal digits the display will show. Entering 2 or 3 seems reasonable.

First of all,what kind of calculator do you have? I suspect you inadvertantly changed the floating decimal point to a fixed one. That would give lots of zeros. Look at your calculator and find mode. It should be set on floating point.

Hello,

The presence of the zeros is not a bad thing in itself. It depends on their positions (think of a bank account!) Although I cannot guess why the calculator would display 3 zeros**all the time**, I will try to help you Fix the number of DECIMAL digits to the standard 2.

Press [f] followed by 2.

Hope it helps.

Hello

The floating point number display (FIX) is set to zero decimal digits. All your. numbers with decimal parts are rounded.

Look for a key that says [FIX]. Press it and enter a number say3 If I guessed right (Sharp makes numerous calculators) your numbers will show 3 decimal digits.

If there is no such key look for a [MODE] Button. Press the button. If you have a new screen with differents choices look for Format, Float,

On some older calculators there is a table below the display. At the left of the table one finds MODE--> or -->MODE

If it says there Mode DEG:4 that means to have angles in degrees you enter [MODE][4].

I think I exhausted all possibilities. Without you model number, I cannot do more.

Hope it helps.

You're in scientific notation. Press f FIX and a digit to get into a fixed decimal mode.

If got to do with the mode settings. Usually MODE fix in other lower version of calculator. The combination can be MODE FIX 0 for no trailing zero's if MODE FIX ONE then if will 0.0 or one zero then shifting the settings to NORMAL mode and at DEG mode.

Calculator turns on in "degree" mode. Just enter angle in degrees then press "SIN", "COS" "TAN".

Most people work in degrees but you can switch to Rads or Grads to Degrees modes by pressing "DRG" repeatedly with zero displayed, Current angular mode will show in display.
