Applying for a job in a bookstore, and one requirement is - Must be proficient in operating a 10-key calculator.
Is that the same as the numeric keypad on the right side of the computer keyboard? If so, I'm reasonably accurate on it but not super fast.

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.
Sorry.

Can't find a manual online. What does 5/4 mean, and how do I turn it off? Same for E. My biggest problem is that when I add up numbers with the print function on (for depositing large batches of...


The manual for the Canon P1-DHV is online at http://www.usa.canon.com/app/pdf/calculator/P1-DHV_G_USA_HWB.pdf>.
When the display shows "5/4", the calculator is doing 5/4 rounding which means: 5 or above round up, 4 or below round down. To control rounding press the "5/4" key.
When the display shows "E" the calculator could not complete a calculation. It can be because of dividing by 0, or because the total exceeded 1 trillion, or because the operator entered calculations faster than the calculator could complete them. Press the CI/C key to clear it.
I can't explain why you are not getting a total on the tape. Try the following example from the manual exactly as shown, and let me know if your tape shows the total.
  1. Clear the calculator (press [CI/C])
  2. Choose 5/4 rounding (press [5/4] until "5/4" displays)
  3. Choose add mode (press [DEC] until "A" displays)
  4. Choose cost-sell-margin mode (press [B-T] until "B" displays)
  5. Turn printer on (press [PRINT] until "PRINT" displays)
  6. To calculate: $12.55 + $15.75 - $5.30
  7. Key in: 1255 [+] 1575 [-] 530 [=]
  8. Tape shows: [0. C] ... [12.55 +] ... [15.75 -] ... [5.30 =] ... [23.00 *]

How do I print the total amount on my ticker tape of what I've added? I pressed the equals sign but that didn't work.


OFF • P P•IC
ON POWER SWITCH; PRINT / ITEM COUNT MODE SELECTOR:
"OFF": Power OFF
"•": Power ON. Set to the non print mode.
"P": Power ON. Set to the print mode.
"P•IC": Power ON. Set to the print and item count mode.
1) For addition or subtraction, each time is pressed, 1 is added to the item
counter, and each time is pressed, 1 is subtracted.
• The count is printed when the calculated result is obtained.
• Pressing of , clears the counter.
2) When the grand total/rate setting mode selector is in the ON position (GT), the
counter will count the number of times that the calculation results have been
stored in the grand total memory. To print and clear the count, press the key.
3) The memory item counter will count the number of times that the key has
been pressed in the addition.
Note: • Each time the key is used in the subtraction, 1 will be subtracted from
the count.
• The count is printed when the memory is recalled.
• Pressing of the key clears the counter.
Note: The counter has a maximum capacity of 3 digits (up to ±999). If the count exceeds
the maximum, the counter will recount from zero.

Hi i have the canon p170-DH and i cant subtract. example: 4-4= -8 not 0


Hi....by looking at the date you posted this question, you may have already found the answer, but just in case you haven't......the procedure for adding and subtracting on these calculators is completely opposite of a regular calculator. On a regular calculator, you would input 4 - 4 = 0. On these type of calculators, a number's positive or negative status is keyed in AFTER the number, instead of before it. Therefore, you input 4 + 4 - (notice you DO NOT input = at the end, but if you are in print mode, you will need to hit your total key, which looks like an asterisk, where the = would normally be, in order for the final value of your calculations to print on the paper tape.

Multiplication and division equations are done exactly as they are on a regular calculator....4 x 4 = 16.

Hope this helps. If you have your owners manual, it should also give you some examples of how to perform calculations with your calculator.

The asterix (*) next to the big fat plus key prints the running total.

Just figured that out. Why doesn't Canon have a downloadable manual for this thing?

Possessed typwriter


Assuming that you have the correct print wheel fitted and that the typewriter is on standard key board setting then I would look at anything that might be interfering with the rotation of the print wheel. First, remove the print wheel and check that none of the character arms are distorted,then look at how the correction tape is fitted. If this tape is not fitted correctly it could be interfering with the rotation of the print wheel.
