I recently solved this issue with my calculator
Press and hold the time key when the date is dispalyed. When the display flashes enter the date as a six digit date (example 110608 for November 6, 2008) Time needs to be entered in military time when changing time.

How do you set the date on a Victor 1560-6 Calculator. I held down the date button on the unit and the number is flashing. I entered 08232010 for Aug 23rd, 2010 and I am not sure of the sequence to lock...

Immediately after entering the year part of the date, the display should revert back to a blinking first digit (in this case, the 0 to the left of the 8) while retianing all the following digits just entered. Simply press the Time/Date key again to lock in that date and stop the blinking. The same process applies for the time.
To clear the display of the time/date when using the calculator to actually compute something, press the C or CE button. This will result in a 0 appearing on the display. The unit is now ready for data entry.

How do I set the time on my calculator

To set the time on this calculator, you must press and hold the time key until the display is flashing 0. (Hint: you will want the date displaying when you are going to set the time as when you press the time key to hold it, it will switch over to the time.) Once the display is flashing you type in the time using the keypad. If you were going to set the time for 9:30, you plug in 930 and push the time key again. If you need to set it for a time in the PM you would have to use the 24 hour scale; for example 1:30 PM would be 1330. To set the date, you press and hold the time key with the date displaying until the display begins flashing. Again you would use the numbers on the keypad to enter the date and press the time key again to set it. For 1/20/2011 you would type in 12011.

Adding machine can't set date & time. When I press the = sign date starts flashing I can change it but I cannot lock it in. When I press the date time button it reverts to the old time.

My machine goes this way-
Hit time/date button.
then enter in date (ie) 11.16.2009--INCLUDE DECIMAL!!!
Then hit time/date button again,

I am still working on the time issue, I just cant seem to remeber, I know it is done off military time.

I can't seem to do simple subtraction with my Victor 1208-2. When I subtract say 5-4, I get a negative 9. Is there a setting or do I need to press something different to get simple subtraction to work?

When you want to complete a problem on an adding machine, such as "7 - 3," you would not key in "7," then the subtraction sign, then "3" and then an equal sign. If you do, then you will get an answer of "-4," and you know that is not the correct answer. Again, you have to think like an accountant when you are working with your adding machine. To figure this subtraction problem on an adding machine, you would need to key in "7," the addition sign, "3" and then the subtraction sign; you would get the answer of 4. You are actually working the problem as "7 + (-3)." This would be true on most modern day machines. In order to subtract, you have to add the negative number.

Is there a way to get the time/day from being displayed? I just want 0.00 on the display. Also, I can get the time correct, but not the date. This machine does not have a time/date button, just a time...

press the CA button to get your time/day from being displayed. For your date... whenever you press the time button to edit your time, press it again & your date shouold come up. the time/date button are both done with the TIME key.
