Begin mode is obtained by pressing [g][7] and it should then show BEGIN in the bottom line of the display. End mode is obtained by pressing [g][8]. End mode does not not show an indicator in the display because it is the default mode, so if BEGIN isn't showing, then the calulator is in End mode.

Turn off deg

If you mean "BEG" then press g [END] (the blue "g" key followed by the "8" key) to switch to the end payment mode.

If you do mean "deg" but on a different calculator, then please reply to this post and specify the calculator.

I have an f or g function on at present (says Begin in the window) and I do not want this on. How do I get rid of these and get the standard 2 place decimal number?

The f and g indicate that the specified prefix key has been pressed. Simply go ahead and press the key to complete the function. To cancel the prefix key, press f [CLEAR PREFIX] (f ENTER).

The BEGIN indicates that payments are made at the beginning of each period. To change to the End setting, press g [END] (g 8), and the BEGIN will disappear from the screen.

To set the calculator to FIX 2 display format, press f 2.

Press "f" then 2. The number you press after "f" sets the number of digits to the right of the decimel point.

Wrong format for numbers displayed in HP 12C

It's been awhile since I used one of these but there should be a decimal function on the keys. Make sure you put a 2 in there before pressing it and it should display the format using 200.00
