Question about Sharp EL-1701C Calculator
At random, during calculations - plus, minus, equal, anything - suddenly the letter P appears in the window. I have to total the calculation out and start over. Is there a way I can stop it from doing this?
Well , I've been having the same problem for a while now. I tried taking out the screws but they were way too tight so I tried the oldest trick in the book. I banged it up a little and so far everything seems fine!!!

Did that and the P still shows up.

Thank-you so much!
I had the same problem and was going to buy a new adding machine but I did a quick search and found your website.
I loosened the screws (which seemed loose already) on the bottom but the "p" came up almost immediately.
Next I tightened the screws up and voila!! It works!! The problem was that the screws had loosened up during years of use.

Try loosening the screws on the back. On ours they were installed too tightly, probably pinching something inside and causing the P to appear at random.
