If the print carriage is stuck on the far left, gently try to turn the gears a few turn and if you are lucky enough the print carriage will go back to the right.
This is what I did and it is working fine now.

One thing importan, be "gentle" it is easy to break.

How can I change the setting to print total the decimals. It is rounded off to the nearest one hundred.


You need to set your decimal selection to full-floating if you expect any numbers to be more than 4 decimal places.

Each time you press the DEC key it changes the decimal selection. From F to 0, 2, 3, 4 and A in that order. F is "full floating" but appears as a blank on the screen. A is the "add-mode" for currency transactions. The "A" does show on the screen if this is your selection.

As soon as the letter for the number of decimal places you want ("F" is blank just before 0 decimals) appears on the screen you are "ready to go." Problem is, the decimal indicator numbers and letters are so tiny and screen is so difficult to read that under many lighting conditions your selections might be all but invisible. They are in the upper left side of the screen just to the right of the equally difficult to see multiplication and division rounding indicator "5/4." PS If the 5/4 does not appear on your screen then you have set the round-off function to not available.

I don't know how to solve for x. For example. I type 22x=22. The answer it gives is 0. On all problems x is zero


The variables you have at your disposal in this calculator are
A, B,C,D,X,Y,M. All of them are accessed by pressing the [ALPHA] key before the key near which is written the name of the variable. You will notice that the markings of the symbols accessed with the [ALPHA] key are of the same color as that of the [ALPHA] key.

You will notice also that there are two = signs.
The one at the bottom right executes the command line. By pressing it you find the result of the expression just entered.

The other = sign is marked on the body of the calculator with the same color as the [ALPHA] key. It is located at the top left of the keyboard (excluding the row with SHIFT, MODE, the navigation buttons)

Example to enter X^2-2X-35=0 you proceed as follows.
Direct access physical keys are in [ ],
[ALPHA] (X) [X to power 2] [ - ] [2] [ * ][ALPHA][(X) [ - ] [3][5] [ALPHA] (=) [0]

Usually when you enter such an expression it is with the intention of solving it for X. By default X is taken to be the UNKNOWN. You will be prompted to enter the value assigned to any other letter symbol (Y, A,B,C,D).

So, if you want to use the Solve function, you enter the equation you are dealing with, and before pressing anything else, press [SHIFT] [CALC] and the calculator will ask you a question: "Solve for X?" , and you press the = sign at the bottom right.
Then you will be prompted for any other non-X letter. Once all non-X variables (if any) are given values, the calculator will return with the solution. You will see on the screen L-R= (should be zero if you are lucky).

How do i enter linear equations on my casio fx-115es? 3p+6=10+2p


You can enter equations of any type. Read the rest of the post. Keep in mind that if you are using the Solve( function X must be the unknown. If you are using the Table computational mode, X is the independent variable and Y the dependent one.

TI-83 Plus 1 and 0 keys will not work


make sure that there is nothing sticky in your calculator. It's likely that you got something sticky in there and now the pin that you would push down when you push the key is permently down. So if you can kinda try to make it not stick then your set. If it's a teqnical problem then it's time to buy a new calculator. I just went and bought a ti 84 silver and it's great. Best of luck
