20 Most Recent Sharp EL-1701C Calculator Questions & Answers

Once you open up the clear plastic cover, there is this tiny piece of black plastic at the right hand side, that's the ink roller unit (the ink roller is the bottom of the unit). You could try to remove it with your fingers. If you can't get it out, use a little screw driver and gently pop it out. You can find the replacement on eBay or other outlets, it is about $6 a piece (cheaper if you bulk-buy).

I Finally figured it out after playing with it for almost 1/2 an hour!

Hit 2nd then Tax + (rate set) it will appear as 0.000 enter your tax rate... mine is 5% so I enter 5.0 then hit 2nd and Tax + (rate set again) And it will work!

It is glorious!!!

Hi cherycooney,
Press the '2nd' button, press the 'M+' button. 'NP' should appear on the display screen, and print function will be turned off.

Thanks for using Fixya.

you may need to cut the corners off a little bit on the start of the new roll and feed the paper in while advancing with the calculator advance control/button

Have same problem with the randomly appearing"P" and no end frustration with it. Tried loosening, (...the screws very extreemly tight), tried with no success, then tightened again, but still no success. Thanks, though, for the suggestion!

I have found (somewewhere on the web, sorry cant remember where) that it is only a power error ! So if you see the P.e the calculator doesnt received enough power... All you gotta do is to change the batteries!! Or plug it with the appropriated power cord :) Enjoy!

F is for floating decimal. If you do a calculation, it will present the results without rounding. For example, 1/2 would be displayed as 0.5, whereas 1/8 would be displayed as 0.125. The 5/4 rounds the results. For example, if the number of decimals is set to 0, 1/2 is 1. Similarly, if the number of decimals is set to 2, 1/8 is 1.3.

If you want all entries and answers to have two numbers after the decimal, you should have a lever or slide that shows F,6,3,2,1,0. Some also show Add. Set the lever on the 2 or add. F means floating decimal. the others indicate how many numbers after the decimal.
