I used to be able to enter numbers and it would set the decimal point after the last 2 numbers automatically. It won't do that now unless I press the decimal point. How do I fix it?

You need to be in add mode, and have 2 decimal places selected for the result.

To change to add mode, make sure the 'K . A' switch is in the 'A' position. To get 2 decimal places in the answer, move the selector in the 'F 6 3 2 1 0' switch to the '2' position.

You can see the above described at

this Sharp.com page which shows the users manual. The manual shows examples.

Set the Mode selector to "A"

Set the Decimal selector to "2"

In addition & subtraction you will automatically get 2 decimal places without entering the "." just enter 1250 and it will print 12.50

In multiplication/division, you must enter the "." (decimal point).

ie: 12.50 x 2 = 25.00

Set the Decimal selector to "2"

In addition & subtraction you will automatically get 2 decimal places without entering the "." just enter 1250 and it will print 12.50

The selector you are asking about is the "decimal selector". The result displayed/printed, will be in a format according to the position that you have selected as follows:

f = floating (the result will be in the number of decimal places that were entered on the keyboard

4= fixed 4 decimal places (x.0000)

3= fixed 3 decimal places (x.000)

2= fixed 2 decimal places (x.00)

0= fixed 0 decimal places (x)

add 2= (add mode*,fixed 2 places) ($.00)

Note* "ad mode" automatically enters the decimal place when entering the number on the keyboard. If you enter "123", the displayed ammount will be "1.23". If you enter "1", the display will read ".01". This is a useful setting when adding a list of numbers in a dollars/cents format, however, be careful, if entering a whole dollar ammount "three dollars" be sure to enter the decimal point, or enter the number as "300". If you don't, the result will be ".03", instead of the 3 dollars you intended.

Your Texas Instruments calculator has a built-in printer for producing a permanent record printout of

your calculations with negative numbers printed in red. A big, easy-to-read display also enables you to

check entries or perform quick calculations without printing.

GETTING STARTED

OFF ON PRT IC GT

POWER

1. Connect the calculator to a proper power outlet (110-120V or 220-240V

where available).

2. The calculator is turned on by setting the POWER switch to the PRT

position.

Inserting the paper (see illustrations 1, 2, 3, and 4 on page ii).

1. Turn on the calculator.

2. Open the printer compartment cover by pressing down on its front edge and sliding it back in the

direction of the arrow.

3. Fit the roll of paper on the holder so that it unrolls from the bottom, with the loose end toward the

calculator.

4. Cut the end of the paper squarely and insert it firmly into the printer slot on the back of the

calculator.

5. Press & until the paper is in the printing position.

Replacing the ink roller (see illustrations 5 and 6 on page ii)

1. Turn the calculator off and tear off the excess paper.

2. Remove the printer cover by pressing down on both sides of the front edge and sliding back in the

direction of the arrow.

3. Remove the old ink roller by lifting it with the removal tab.

4. Insert the new ink roller into the compartment and press down gently until it snaps into place. Close

the printer compartment.

Note: The old ink rollers should not be refilled. Replacement rollers can be obtained from your local

Have you tried messing around with the decimal setting and setting if to F (floating) or somethings besides 2? This should affect your inputting of numbers however. You're not hitting the percent key (%) by any chance, are you. I don't have this calculator but I'm not aware of any function that inserts a decimal point in a number that you enter (other than the percent key). The decimal setting should only affect the number of decimal points in the answer. Good luck and let us know how you make out. I'm curious.

You have to set how the calculator handles numbers. To do this follow these steps:
1. Press the 'MODE' button. This brings up the calculator's main settings page.
2. Scroll down until you reach a field titled 'Exact/Approx...'. This is the setting for how the calculator handles numbers, whether it will show the exact answer (which is usually in fraction format) or whether it will show an approximate number (which will be in decimal format).
3. Press the right arrow which will bring up the options for that setting. You must now choose between three ways of handling numbers:
-'1:AUTO' will determine which type of answer the calculator will give based on what numbers you want it to calculate (e.g. if you want an answer in decimal format just add a decimal somewhere in your problem).
-'2:EXACT' will automatically display all answers in either whole number format or in fraction format.
-'3:APPROXIMATE' will automatically display all answers in decimal format.
4. After you have selected one of those options press enter one more time to get out of the 'MODE' dialogue and return to the 'HOME' screen. Now try a problem and see what happens.
Personally I like using 'AUTO' because then I don't have to keep returning to 'MODE' when I want either or.
Hope this helped, I had the same problem when I first started using the TI-89.
