The top of the screen displays reminders on the current configuration of the calculator. The FIX will disappear if you change number display to SCIentific or ENGineering, but it will be replaced by SCI or ENG. Why does it bother you, since that part is reserved for the calculator's usage?
Hope it helps.

The words FIX DEG appear on the screen and I can't get rid of it. It doesn't calculate properly

DEG says that the angle unit is set to degrees. You can change it to RADians, or GRADs. However much you want to get rid of all of them you will always have one of them. Learn to live with them.
FIX says that the decimal displays will always show a fixed number of decimals. You can decide how many you keep. Apparently your calculator is configured not to show any decimal digits: the number of fixed digits is set to zero. Change it to some other number
There are other display formats : Engineering ENG, and Scientific (SCI)
There is another format (possibly 2) called Norm 1 or Norm 2.
Set you calculator to one of the Normal formats.
Press SHIFT MODE to enter (Setup) and configure.
Advice: Learn to use your calculator. The best way to achieve mastery is to look inside the manual whenever you do not understand something.

How to get rid of scientfic notaion

If you want a fixed decimal display mode, press SHIFT MODE 6 and then a digit specifying the desired number of digits after the decimal point.
If you want the calculator to decide, press SHIFT MODE 8 and either 1 or 2 to select one of the "norm" modes.
Be aware that if the magnitude of the number gets too small or too large to fit onto the screen the calculator will automatically shift to scientific mode no matter what display mode you have set.

How to get rid of sci?

To get rid of this result display mode you set the display mode to another one: FIX, NORMal 1 or NORmal 2. But since you do not disclose the model and make of your claculator (are you afraid of calculator identity theft?) neither I nor anybody else will be able to tell you how to do it. Sorry.

How do I remove the word fix from from calculator screen?

Why? Does it prevent you from doing your calculations. It is just a reminder to the user that the number display format is set to FIXed. To get rid of it you must change the display format to another one.
To do so, press the SETUP key, select 1:FSE, then select any format you want
0:FIX , 1:SCI, 2:ENG, 3:NORM1, 4:NORM2
You will be prompted to enter a number between 0 and 9. This will decide how many decimal digits will be displayed in your results.
Do not be surprised to see that the FIX reminder is replaced by the one you just chose.

How do I get rid of the "FIX" at the top of calculator?

It is there to remind you that the result display format is set to a fixed number of decimal digits. If you change the setting to SCI, NORM1, NORM2 or ENG, the one you choose will be be displayed. So you will always have something displayed there. Do you still have enough reasons to want to get rid of it?
Here is how to modify the setting
Select 1:FSE
Select one of the 4 options: 0:FIX, 1:SCI, 2:ENG, 3:NORM1, or 4:NORM2

If you choose FIX, SCI or ENG, you will be prompted to specify the number of decimal digits (0 to 9).
You might want to select NORM1 or NORM2.
Then select the number of decimal digits to display

My casio fx-992s is showing fix and deg on the screen. I think the "fix" is causing me a problem but I can't get rid of it. All my decimals are being rounded up to whole numbers! Thanks

The DEG is merely indicating that the angular mode is set to degrees. If you want to change it to radians or grads, press SHIFT MODE and make your selection.

Likewise, the FIX is merely indicating that the calculator is displaying numbers in fixed decimal notation. If you're not seeing any digits to the right of the decimal point, then you're in FIX 0 mode. To change it, press SHIFT MODE. You can choose FIX and the calculator will prompt for the number of digits, or you can select NORM.

If you press the setup key then 1 under FSE it will say TAB (0-9)? enter the amount of decimal places you want and it will change that for you.

Screen not displaying whole letters because of horizontal and vertical lines

I've had the same problem. A temporary fix that I have found is to turn up the contrast all the way (press [2nd] then hold down the up arrow) until the screen becomes mostly black. Then turn the contrast back down (press [2nd] then hold down the down arrow) until it is at a normal level. If you can get rid of all the white lines when you turn up the contrast the screen will be back to normal. Unfortunately this does not permanently fix the problem because I cannot get rid of all the lines and it seems to be getting progressively worse each time it start up the calculator.
