Question about Texas Instruments BA-II Plus Calculator

# Decimal Display I have an old TI BA-11 calculator and the decimal display has changed. It only displays to the tenths. I need it to display to the thousandths. Anyway, it is so old that the upper display symbols have been worn off of the keys. I can't find my old, old manual and need to change it back. So, can you tell me how to do this and what keys are where since there are no longer any symbols on them?

2nd - then the decimal button gets you to format. You should be able to change the decimal display from there.
