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.

Cannot get rid of comma


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.

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


Hello,
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.

It is not calculating because your decimal point and the digit separator (that's the comma which automatically displays for every group of 3 digits) got messed up. To clear, turn the calculator OFF, then press and hold down the dot (that is the decimal point symbol) key while you press the ON key..
