Sharp ELW516: Changing the default display to decimal

<span><b>Getting Decimal Answers by Disabling WriteView<img src="elw516.gif" /> on the Sharp EL-W516 Calculator<br /><br /></b>The Sharp EL-W516's WriteView display uses multiple lines to display mathematics as it is seen on a page. Fractions are shown as fractions, exponents as exponents, integrals as integrals, and so on. This makes entering calculations easier, and reduces the chance of errors. <br /><br />At the same time, calculation results are displayed as fractions (or with roots or pi) whenever possible. Pressing the CHANGE button repeatedly will change these to decimal answers. <br />If you prefer to always get decimal results you need to <b>disable</b> <b>the WriteView display mode</b>. Doing this will make the calculator display like the Sharp EL-546W when in NORMAL mode. Answers will be given as decimals, but fractions will no longer look like fractions. In general, you will still need to follow the EL-W516 instructions.<br /><b>Disabling WriteView<br /></b><br />Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.<br /><br />There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE<br /><br />Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.<br /><br />To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.<br /><br /><b>NOTE</b>: It is not possible to have decimals as the default answer form when in WriteView mode. <br /></span>

You need a SHARP with Write-View display capabilities. The EL-531X is unable to show that. The Write-View calculators from Shard have a W, example EL-W516 followed by Write-View. Not to be confused with the W in EL-520W

How do i display very small exponents on the sharp 531w calculator... for example: the screen simply shows 0.0000000 for the answer 7.4*10^-14 ...i can't get answers correctly on a test or working a...

You have several number display formats : Normal1, Normal2, Sci, ENG
If a number is too small or too large and the calculator cannot display it with the necessary number of digits (to satisfy your of decimal digits) the calculator uses Scientific notation
7.4E-14 =7.4x10^(-14)
If you were to use the norma1 or normal2 format you will have
.0000000000000074 but your calculator displays only the first 10 places

You should learn to use and interpret results in scientific format.

Hope it helps

The calculator is intermittent: Most of the time

Not knowing what to do, I tried anything that could possibly help:

I installed fresh batteries and I pushed the reset button on the back of the calculator (Sharp EL-546L) and finally, it work all right after more than 5 years I own the calculator and where it did work correctly for 5 minutes. I tried the reset button in the past (long time ago) and it didn't work. This time it worked because, maybe, I've used fresh batteries.
