SOURCE: Adding adding machine paper to the Ibico 1202

Assuming that you know where the paper gets feed in, I usually use this trick to start a new roll of paper.
First, tear off the end of the new roll so that there isn't any glue stuck on the paper.
Then, fold the tip of the paper like an arrow. > (Fold one side to the middle and the other side to the middle so both sides meet in the middle.
Then, place the paper into the slot where the paper feeds in..Look in the back of the printer for a thin slot. (Usually goes under the printer1.gif assembly) and then hit the PAPER FEED button at the same time. If the paper is in the correct slot, the paper should start feeding the paper all the way through.
Hope this helps.
Have a good day.
M =)

SOURCE: How do I get this calculator to substract

Big calculators work a little different than handheld calculators. Like the above commentor explained, if you have a basic "whats 100 minus 20?" You have to entered as 100 + 20 -- And when you hit the minus button at the end, it will give you the total. 100 is the positive number, and the 20 is the negative number that your subtracting. Also you can hit 20 -- 100 + and get the same total because you entering 20 as the negative and 100 as the positive, just in reverse.

One solution that you might try is to put the scientific numbers in parentheses. For instance open parenthesis, type in the first scientific notation then close parenthesis, next hit the divide key and then open parenthesis and type in the 2nd number in scientific that you are dividing by and then close parenthesis. Hit enter or =. I'm not sure if this will fix your problem, but it is worth a try.

SOURCE: how do you subtract

Its a little strange. Suppose you want subtract 10 from 38. Do this:
Enter 38 press plus key.
Enter 10, press minus key.
Press the equal sign. You will have the result.

Why doesn't the equal button work when I do additions and subtractions?


Your calculator is fine. It is an adding machine first, so it uses adding machine logic and you hit the star button to print the total on the tape. The equals sign is only used when multiplying and dividing.

Adding machine logic is as follows:

5+ total 5
3- total 2
7+ total 9
* print out total

Good luck,

Paul

I can't get rid of the zero in front of the minus, add, multiply and devide sign. how do i get rid of it?


Are you entering any number before pressing the minus, add, multiply, or divide key? Those operations require two numbers; if you don't supply the first one then the calculator will supply the previous answer, which was zero.

For example, to add 2 and 3, press 2 + 3 = and you'll see 5. Now to add 4 to that, press + and the calculator will automatically supply the 5. Press 4 = and you'll see 9.

Minus and change-sign are two completely different things. Minus is used to subtract one number from another. When you press minus when the input line is empty, your telling the calculator to subtract. The only way it can subtract the number you're about to put in is to subtract it from something else, and that something else is the previous answer, hence the "Ans."

If you want to input a negative number, use the change-sign key. If you want to subtract one number from another number, use the minus key.

Try pressing the plus key when the input line is empty. You'll get Ans+ in this case as well, The same with multiply and divide, among others, and for the same reason.

My calculator will add, but after my total and then I want to subtract, it subtracts by the number I added.


If your calculator is more of an adding machine it works a little bit differently than a calculator. For an example: 10 + 5 - 2 on your machine do the addition of 10 + 5, then to subtract the 2 press 2 then the minus sign to get the total of 13. I hope this is helpful.

Cant scan


Try to scan with Preview or Image Capture apps (in your Applications folder).

If that does not work, try deleting and re-adding the printer in the print queue:

- Sys Prefs, Print & Fax
- Select the printer in question and click the minus sign at the bottom of the list
- Select the plus sign to re-add it. Look for the printer, select it and wait until the "Add" button becomes available. Click it.

If this does not work, do the same thing, only instead of the second step, right (control) click the print queue area and select Reset Printing System

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.

Printer keep printing same job


Check you menu on the printer to ensure that under copies it says 1. It's easy to hit the keys when in the menu under copies one key minus and you now have 999.

Check the default number of copies at the print driver side (when you hit "file print") to make sure it says 1 also.

Hope that helps you.
