I doubt that it has a glitch. Although possible, it is not very probable. Try to use the calculator correctly.

Follow the algebraic logic.

If you did not input any value the answer memory contains the value 0.

When you press (+/-) followed by [=] it takes the value in answer memory and negates it, thus giving you (-0).

Adopt a consistent way of inputting numbers, namely always enter the negation sign before the number that is negated. The calculator will enclose the negated number between parentheses, which prevents may errors. Too bad this feature has not been kept in more recent calculators by Sharp.

No, you're not squaring a negative number, you're negating a square. When you press (-) 4 ^ 2 ENTER , the calculator is calculating -(4^2). 4^2 is 16, and the negative of that is -16. What you want to do is to calculate (-4)^2 by pressing ( (-) 4 ) ^ 2 ENTER .

There's a negative button and a minus button. I think you're accidently pressing the negative button. The actual subtraction button is the red "-" button above the "+" button. I hope this helps, but if all else fails, you can always add a negative!

You're not calculating the square of a negative number, you're calculating the negative of a square. You need to use parenthesis to indicate the square of a negative number.

You're calculating -(3^2), not (-3)^2.

To calculate the latter: ( (-) 3 ) x^2 =
