It depends on the purpose of your trying to get rid of the comma. If the decimal mark (radix mark) is the comma, you can change it to the dot. If you just do not want to have the 3-digit separator, maybe you should get used to it, or buy another calculator.

To switch the radix (decimal) mark
Turn the calculator off, then press and hold down the [.] (dot) key while you press [ON]. Doing so again sets the calculator to use the original digit separators in the display.

Get rid of comma,

To switch the radix mark between the US and European modes, turn the calculator on, then press and release SHIFT, then press and release the decimal point key. You'll note that the shifted function of the key is marked "./," which should serve as a reminder that this functions switches between comma and dot.

My HP 12C is displaying with a comma rather than a decimal. I don't know how this happened and don' t know how to rid of the comma and return to a decimal. Please help.

Turn the calculator off. Press and hold down the decimal point while you press ON. The digit separator and radix sign will flip each time you do this.

In my register it reads 0,00000. How do I get rid of the comma?

I am not sure if you can prevent the comma (the thousands separator) from appearing, in general. But if you are not averse to using Scientific or Engineering notations, you will not have to put up with the commas. (As an aside I will not mind having a bank account with 4 or 5 commas in the amount.)

Hope it helps.

The comma should change back to a decimal point.

When I turn my 12c on it has a comma instead of a period.

The comma is a three-digit separator that appears if number with many digits are displayed ( millions, billions). Since it is a financial calculator designed for money calculations, the comma can be helpful.
There is nothing in the manual that suggests that the three-digit separator can be removed. It can however be replaced by the point as in European Countries (especially France) where the decimal mark is the point and the three-digit separator the comma.

In short. I do not think you can get rid of the comma.

Hope you can learn to live with it.

Display Problem & Question

To remove the comma, turn off the calculator. With it turned off, push and hold down the [ON] key. While still depressing the [ON] key, push and hold down the decimal or [.] key. Now you should have them both held down. Now, release ONLY the [ON] key.

To remove the "c", push then release the [STO] key. Then push and release the [EEX] key.
