    I have set the tab, but it will not print the last 2 figures. They show up on the screen correct, but on the adding maching paper they do not print.

How do I set the decimal to automatically enter for dollars and cents on my Sharp EL-1197PIII?

Set the Mode selector to "A"
Set the Decimal selector to "2"

In addition & subtraction you will automatically get 2 decimal places without entering the "." just enter 1250 and it will print 12.50

In multiplication/division, you must enter the "." (decimal point).
ie: 12.50 x 2 = 25.00

Can I enter a figure like 56.37 without having to manually hit the . key? I have tried every place from F 6 3 2 1 0 and I can't get it to read or print as 56.37 or 21.24 or stuff like that...

As far as I am aware there is no way to enter a number which is not a whole number in decimal format, without using the decimal point key "." and this applies to every single machine I have come across in a more than 40 year career, the last 18 of which have been in Information Technology and computing.
Sorry if this is not the answer you wanted.

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.

Up Arrow: Answer is rounded up
5/4 key: Answer is rounded off
Down arrow: Answer is rounded down
The decimal will float if the calculation is multiplication or division
If the decimal selector is set to F then the answer is always rounded down
