If you mean it is not showing everything after the decimal point, you can change that by pressing the [f] key followed by the number of decimal places to display. For example, to restrict it to 2 places, press [f][2]. If you want to see 4 places, press [f][4].

To show all possible decimal places, use the sequence [f][9].

From the manual (http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00363319.pdf):

"To display a different number of decimal places, press f followed by a digit key (0 through 9) specifying the number of decimal places. In the following examples, notice how the displayed form of the number inside the calculator - 14.87456320 - is rounded to the specified number of digits."

"Although nine decimal places were

specified after f, only eight are

displayed since the display can

show a total of only 10 digits. "

The standard display format, plus the specified number of decimal places, remain in effect until you change them; they are not reset each time the calculator is turned on. However, if Continuous Memory is reset, when the calculator is next turned on numbers will be displayed in the standard display format with two decimal places

shown.

If a calculated answer is either too small or too large to be displayed in the standard display format, the display format automatically switches to scientific notation. The display returns to the standard display format for all numbers that can be displayed in that format.

Press the MODE key a certain number of times until you get FIX. Select it. You will be asked to specify the number of decimal places (enter a number between 0 and 9). You can also choose the normal mode. However, if the result is too small or too large, it will be displayed in scientific notation.

Initial Setup

One adjustment is important before we get started. By default the 12C displays only two decimal places. This is not enough. Personally, I like to see five decimal places, but you may prefer some other number. To change the display, press **"F"** and then the number of decimal places you wish to display. I would press **"F 5 "** to display 5 decimal places. That's it, the calculator is ready to go.

You need to hold the "F" key.---------

I found this solution on the HP website. Turn it on, and do what it says. Then turn it off and back on again, and the extra decimal places should show.
