Sharp EL-1197S Calculator's paper roll doesn't advance

I know it's old, but my Sharp EL-1197S printing calculator still works except that the paper roll doesn't advance consistently. It will print 3 or 4 numbers then stick and print the next 2 or 3 on top of each other. It probably just needs a cleaning, but there isn't much I can see that could be preventing the tape from advancing. Any ideas?

The manual for 1801v is not distributed from Sharp anymore.
You can download the manual for EL-1801PIII Operation Manual (240K) , It is the same model with some cosmetic difference.

I have an old Sharp EL-1701C calculator and for some reason can not feed a new roll of paper into the unit? Batteries are new and the feed option works well, just doesn't grab the paper roll to start?


you may need to cut the corners off a little bit on the start of the new roll and feed the paper in while advancing with the calculator advance control/button

Paper does not advance properly on my sharp el-1801p calculator


probably there is paper underneath the printer..if you are handy you have to open the printer underneath to take stuck paper out.
or take apiece of clear place ,that can enter where you pass the paper.and let the plastic come the other side out.
probably it willcome with anything that is stuck beneath the printer

Sharp calculator EL-1197P III paper feed stuck


Hi

I trust you are well.

This might be trivial however when you replace your paper roll the edge of the edge paper must be cut straight otherwise the paper will not feed correctly.

Hope this solution is as easy as that, If not open the claculator paper feed compartment and check the gear mechanism for chipped teeth or foreign objects stuck inside.

Hope this helps you
Kind regards

Trying to replace the paper roll on a sharp EL1801V


1 Turn off the Sharp EL-1801V.

  • 2 Cut the end of the replacement paper roll for a fresh edge and to ensure a smooth feed. Do not tear the paper roll, as feeding a torn paper roll can cause a paper jam.
  • 3 Insert the cut edge into the paper opening on the back of the Sharp EL-1801V. Hold the paper roll so that the edge being fed into the machine is coming from the bottom of the roll. Turn the power on.
  • 4 Press the "Feed" button until the paper is fed through the unit. Lift the metal paper roll holder up. Slide the paper roll onto the paper-roll holder.

    How do you put the adding paper into the machine? My machine is a EL-1197iv


    Never insert paper roll if torn. Doing so will cause paper to jam.
    Always cut leading edge with scissors first.
    1) Insert the leading edge of the paper roll into the opening. (Fig. 1)
    2) Turn the power on and feed the paper by pressing . (Fig. 2)
    3) Insert the paper roll to the paper holder. (Fig. 3)
    DO NOT PULL PAPER BACKWARDS AS THIS MAY CAUSE
    DAMAGE TO PRINTING MECHANISM.

    I have a TI-5045 II Calculator that wont print


    I have the exact same problem (just happended recently) with my TI-5045 II after 25 years of good service. My solution? I just bought another model: Sharp EL-1801V at Stapels for about $31.00. To get the old one fixed will probably cost me $25.00-30.00 just to diagnose, plus shipping and parts and labor. And that assumes I can find a shop to do it, or that TI still stocks the part(s) gone bad. Same old problem with all technology.

    Where do I feed my paper into the Sharp El-1801P calculator


    Hello, my name is Curtis, I am a Sharp Customer Servicer Rep. Normally the calculator would have a thin slot on the back, where you would feed the paper through, then once you press the paper in till it hits an inner wall, you would press the feed key which is on the upper left side of the calculator. If there are any problems doing this please call our technical support line at 1-800-237-4277, I am very glad to hear you like the calculator though!!!
