Question about HP 12c Calculator

Re: incorrect claculation

I get an answer of 366.91 in my 12C as well. You might try either putting in a zero for FV before hitting the [PMT] key, or clearing your registers before doing the problem, as you may be picking up an old value from a previous problem in the FV register.

There is an excellent computer-based tutorial for the HP 12c Platinum on HP's website (although the sequence for TVM calculations is the same for the original 12c).

Download it and have a look. It will guide you key-by-key through the steps.

LR44 or equivalent batteries should be available at just about any electronics store. There are about a dozen Sydneys in the world, is there a Radio Shack store nearby?

Having gone over half a year without a response to my query, I assume a new set of batteries solved the problem.

The Anniversary Edition 12C uses a much faster processor than the original 12C. The new processor also uses more current, and thus you won't get battery life as long.

The 12C does not have the common logarithm function built-in, but you can calculate it using the natural logarithm function (the blue g shift of the %T key, 2nd row, 3rd key).

The common logarithm of x is the natural logarithm of x divided by the natural logarithm of 10, or

log x = ln x / ln 10

Press 1 0 0 0 g [LN] 1 0 g [LN] /

and you'll get the result 3.

Personally, I'd go with the regular, or the Plus, staying away from the Platinum. There's nothing on the calculator or package to distinguish the Plus from the regular, but the Plus uses two coin batteries while the regular uses three button batteries. The Plus is just like the regular, except a LOT faster.

The same thing happened to me today. Try performing a hard reset (small hole near battery). Worked for me.

I couldn't find any reference to a HP calculator model 12p.

There is a HP 12c financial calculator and a 12c Platinum financial calculator.

Check both models (for images, specifications, functions, user guides, etc.) :
