Question about Casio FX-260 Calculator

Ad

The calculator has several decimal display formats: FIX, SCI, NORM and ENG.

Here are examples of calculations with different formats and how to set them.

It may be a good idea for a user to get accustomed to the scientific display format, because it is the one most calculators adopt when the result to be displayed is too large or too small--when there are not enough places on the screen to display the result.

To help you with the power of 10 notation

1 billion =1000 000 000 =1 E 09 (9 zeros after 1 >> exponent 9)

1 million=1 000 000 = 1 E 06 (6 zeros after 1 >> exponent 6

1 thousand= 1000 =1 E03 (3 zeros after 1 >> exponent 3)

One= 1 = 1 E0

One tenth = 1/10 =0.1: the 1 is ONE position after the decimal mark>> exponent -01

One hundredth =1/100 =0.01 the 1 occupies the 2ND position to the right of the decimal point, exponent -02

etc.

1/1000 =0.001 = 1E-03

1/10000=0.0001=1E-04 (1 in 4th position to the right of decimal mark)

1/1000000=0.000001 = 1E-06 (1 in 6th position to the right of decimal mark)

1E-09 =0.000000001 : the 1 is in the 9th position to the right of decimal mark.

I assume you have an ST-50 or ST60 windvane setup. These are the calibration instructions from the unit manual for the ST-50. They are the same for the ST-60 and ST-60+ units.

Hope it helps you.

**Initial Calibration Windvane Alignment**

Before the unit is used for navigational purposes the masthead transducer must be accurately aligned to the vessel. Before this procedure is carried out the windvane should be linearised as follows.

1 . Powerup lhe ST50 Plus Wind instrument.

**2. Tum the vessel through two complete circles,** making sure that the windvane remains in line with the wind -the instrument will automatically linearise the windvane.

**Alignment**

1. Press and hold CAL for 2 seconds until CO is displayed by the LCD.

2. Press < > to move the pointer to the correct wind angle.- WIND

- Press < > once to move the pointer by 1 degree.

- Press < > for 1 second to move the pointer by 10 degrees/second.

The LCD will now display the applied correction.

3. Press and hold CAL for 2 seconds to exit and store windvane alignment.

**Windspeed Unit Selection**

1 . Press and hold CAL until Ul (Knots) or U2 (Meters/second is displayed.

2. Press CALwithin 8 seconds to change the windspeed units selection.

3. After 8 seconds the wind instrument returns to normal operation.

Hope it helps you.

The answer for the problem log(4) - log(2) is actually 0.301, so the good news is that your calculator is working properly! Here's a quick breakdown of the solution for the problem:

1) We know that log(x) = N means that 10^N = x. So in this case, we need to find a number that 10 can be raised to in order to get 4 and 2.

2) To get a better idea of what the answer to the problem will be, we look at the scale of the numbers. 4 and 2 are both smaller than 10. In order to raise any number to a power and get a smaller number, that power must be less than 1. If the power was 1 or greater, the answer would be more than 10. Therefore, we know that log(4) is a decimal less than 1 and log(2) is a decimal less than 1.

3) Now we'll simplify the problem. A logarithm rule states that:

log(x) - log(y) = log(x/y)

We can use this rule to simplify the equation in the problem.

log(4) - log(2) = log(4/2)

Since 4/2 = 2,

log(4) - log(2) = log(4/2) = log(2)

4) Now to solve the equation, the only thing that must be calculated is log(2). This would be done on a calculator. In step 2, we analyzed that log(2) must be less than 1. Therefore, the calculator is correct with the answer 0.301.

Hope this helped!

This can be done by setting the calculator to the right MODE. Press MODE 9 to turn on scientific notation. For example, compute 1 / 200 = and you will see 5 with a -03 exponent in the upper right. Press MODE 9 again and it will be displayed .005

To enter numbers in scientific notation use the EXP at the bottom. To enter .005, press 5 then EXP then +/- then 3. You will see it displayed. Then you can perform calculations with this entered number.

Calibrating the temperature resolves the THS error in most cases.

The ‘Temp Cal’ functions can be carried out in the following way;

· Start with the printer powered OFF and at normal room temperature

· Hold down the ONLINE and SETUP button and power the printer back on

· Keep the ONLINE and SETUP button held down until the display reads ‘PRINT TEMP. CAL’ along the top line

· Press the button under ‘TEMP CAL’ (button 3)

· Using buttons 2 or 3 change the Temp Setting to match the temperature of the room the printer is used in (change this value by at least 1 degree even if it is correct to force the printer into recalibrating.

· Then press SET to save the settings.

If the printer continues to display the THS error, the problem can be caused by;

Incorrectly seated print head

Damaged or incorrectly seated head cable

Fault with Main Board, Interconnect Board or the print head.

The print head operating temperature may need to be calibrated for the operating environment of the printer.

The print head cable may be damaged or incorrectly plugged into the print head or logic board.

The print head may have a fault.

There may be a fault on the logic board or interconnect board

The first thing that I would recommend doing would be to calibrate the print head operating temperature, this can be done in the following way;

·Start with the printer powered OFF and at normal room temperature

·Hold down the ONLINE and SETUP button and power the printer back on

·Keep the ONLINE and SETUP button held down until the display reads ‘PRINT TEMP. CAL’ along the top line

·Press the button under ‘TEMP CAL’ (button 3)

·Using buttons 2 or 3 change the Temp Setting to match the temperature of the room the printer is used in (change this value by at least 1 degree even if it is correct to force the printer into recalibrating.

·Then press SET to save the settings.

Once the Temperature has been recalibrated power the printer OFF and back on again, this should resolve the problem.

If once the print head temperature has been calibrated the printer displays ‘Head Hot’ or alternatively displays a ‘THS’ error this indicates the printer has a hardware fault. The next step would be to identify which part may be causing the problem.

I would recommend first checking the carriage cable to ensure this is not damaged and makes good contact at each end. Then you would need to look at a logic board or print head failure.
