On screen show E and can not print or .How to remove

Your 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.

Casio HR-100TM printing gibberish. Can it be fixed?

Short answer is no. These are low end calculaotors and parts are hard to obtain. These calculators are cheap and basically disposable. It is cost prohibitive to replace the printer in them.

Can't print due to E displayed. I already pushed the reset button on back of machine and it did not remove the E

The same thing happened to me. Wouldn't feed paper and the printer function didn't work. The E was in the lower left of the screen. I took the ink cartridge out and reseated it and that fixed the problem. It was installed incorrectly direct from the factory as my calculator was new out of the box.

E on screen of canon p23-dh v

SOLUTION: I was just having this problem with mines but I was able to fix it. The I don't much about any memory overload or anything (I only do simple add and subtract computations). First I removed the cover and removed the paper from the feed (its a pain I know to reload but you want you're calculater fixed right?). Next I removed the ink roller (it's marked 'PULL UP'). Then after some tinkering, nudged the numerical stamp to the left 2-3 times which immediately started the feed right up. My explanation is that the printer had gotten jammed/off track causing the FEED to stop working. You'll know it definitely if you hear a low quick hum each time you switch to the print function which is probably the little motor saying 'hey, umm I would print if I was connected to a printer!'. Happy Calculating!
