Hi,i think you have mistakenly distorted the basic arithmetic settings,by hitting an undesired button,however,this will solve the problem;

Press the clear key on the keyboard for 5 secs,if this doesn't work,unplug the machine from the power supply,and plugg it back after 5 mins,or remove the battery if it has one and re-inser it back after 5 mins. This is a master reset and should restore the basic arithmetic setting back to your adding machine.


Thanks and good luck

Hi Marisa:
I suggest RESET the device; check your User Guide section about Operation Controls (when you open the document, apply "zoom+" for read).

I have the Sharp EL-1197PIII - dc4cb8f.jpg

    You need un pluged the device from power to RESET; any positive result have with this action? Its so rare; after this "reset" any past set option is stored in there. Just have the factory settings, and now any user can modified this to you task work.

Sharp EL-1197PIII Calculator won't print using the blank ink. Ribbon is correctly installed.


I still have to believe that your ribbon is not quite seated properly on this. I would check that again. If this is not a "cartridge" then Check to see if it is upside down.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE DATE AND TIME?


Only the EL-1197PIII has time and date settings, so I assume you own this model. A link to the manual is here: http://www.sharpusa.com/~/media/96B576A9DADF49A0B1321B57CAB1741D.ashx

You can find the time and date set up process on the first page, 3rd column, 2nd paragraph, under the headline GRAND TOTAL/RATE SETTING MODE SELECTOR.
