    I have tried the reset button on the back to no avail. I removed the batteries hoping it would reset itself; that has not worked either. I've tried pressing the 2nd key along with every key on the calculator hoping I would somehow hit a magic combination; nothing. Please help!

This is the real solution. change your old battery to new one. Then, keep pressing C-CE(on) several times until you hear the sound of a printer.

The problem with the E showing up on screen when you switch to the printer mode is a mechanical problem, with the printer, which is easy to fix. Start by removing the screws on the back and gently remove the back of the calculator machine. Once the back is removed, keep the machine upside down, and look at the printer portion of the machine. In the printer portion you'll see a group of plastic sprockets either on the left or the right, use your finger and gently push on them in an inward motion, there will be one sprocket thats out to far, and needs to be pushed back in, once that sprocket is back in it's place, the printer should be working properly, and the E should not be on the screen anymore.

I too have the same problem. If your printer is still within one year, call the manufacturer. I tried going back to the store I bought it from and turns out Sharp no longer makes this brand, probably because of the problem. We have two of these calculators in our office and both have the same issue. Contact Manufacturer and get money back.

How do u check division problems with remaiders

If you are using a Sharp or Casio scientific calculator and you would like your answer to be shown as a fraction, simply hit the [ab/c] button after you have entered your calculation.
For example:
15/6 = 2.5
press [ab/c] and your screen will show 2/1/2 which means 2 and 1/2.

Casio fr-2650 plus is showing an E on the screen and not allowing me to input data. Ideas?

Follow theses steps (from Casio Support) :

First, check the batteries, and ensure there is not a paper jam in the printer.
If both are fine, then while the calculator is in the "Print" mode, press the [CA] (or [AC]) button 20 times consecutively to clear out memory buffers. Try some numerical calculations, and if the problem persists, repeat pressing the [CA] button 20 times.
If the problem still persists, then the calculator may require service

I am getting the wrong results when performing some basic FV math problems. Doy you have any math problems that would help test my calculator?

It might be more efficient to make the calculator perform a self-test. Here is the procedure.

Verifying Proper Operation (Self-Tests)

If it appears that the calculator will not turn on or otherwise is not operating properly, use one of the following procedures.

1. With the calculator off, hold down the [ON] key and press [X] (the multiply key)..
2. Release the [ON] key, then release the [X] key. This initiates a complete test of the calculator’s electronic circuitry. If everything is working correctly, within about 25 seconds (during which the word RUNNING the display should show –8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8, and all of the status indicators (except the * battery power indicator) should turn on. If the display shows Error 9, goes blank, or otherwise does not show the proper result, the calculator requires service.

Tests of the calculator’s electronics are also performed if the [+] key or the [divide] key is held down when [ON] is released. These tests are included in the calculator to be used in verifying that it is operating properly during manufacturing and service.

If you had suspected that the calculator was not working properly but the proper display was obtained in step 2, it is likely that you made an error in operating the calculator. We suggest you reread the section in this handbook applicable to your calculation — including, if appropriate, appendix A.

If it needs repairs, contact
Here are some examples from the manual (there is overlapping in the first two screen captures)

I have to learn how to operate a texas instrument TI-83 to do math (fraction)

This calculator, although very sophisticated, is rather unfit for heavy fraction calculations. There is no dedicated fraction key, but you can use the [MATH] menu to access a ToFraction command: symbolized by a fat arrow and Frac.
I am enclosing a few screen captures to help you figure out how to use your calculator to manipulate fractions. To get the first screen you press the [MATH] key (below the [ALPHA] key. The ToFraction command is the first one in the list. The second item allows you to convert a fraction to a decimal number.

In the following screen I show you how to enter a fraction (division key) and keep it in fraction form, albeit reduced. Fractions are reduced to their simplest terms
In the last screen, I show you how to convert a fraction to a decimal number by making use of the ToDecimal command (last command line on the left, result is one line down and to the right.)

Time problems

Sorry to say it but the DMS key is to convert between Degrees, minutes, seconds and decimal degrees (angle units). This cleared here is how to use the DMS key on this calculator.

Label of key [deg symbol ' "]. It is between [(-)] and [hyp]

To enter a value in decimal degrees
12.58 [deg ' "] [=] Screen displays 12.58 deg on top line and 12 deg 34' 48" on bottom line.
Pressing the [deg ' "] key while this value is displayed will show 12.58

To enter a DMS value:

Press the [deg ' "] key after each number even if one of the numbers D,M,S is nill (0).
Exemple Enter 25 deg 0 ' 48"
25 [deg ' "] 0 [deg ' "] 48 [deg ' "] [=]
Screen displays 25 deg 0' 48" on bottom line
Pressing the [deg ' "] key converts this result to decimal degrees 25.013

My scientific calculator TI-83 plus is not working i replace the batteries then the calculator cuts on and off and show random things on the screen

You may need to replace the backup battery located behind a little door with a screw right above the AAA batteries. If that doesn't work you might want to try a full reset. Take all batteries out including the backup battery and leave them out for a few hours before reassembling. Hope this helps.

Cannot find the constant key for multiplication

How to do constant multiplication or division on the Canon P170-DH calculator

This process actually requires fewer keystrokes than most other calculators. Basically, just do the first problem
and then do the next items with just the next number and the EQUAL key. For example,

*** Constant Multiplication ***
2 (multiply key)
10 (= key)
(The answer 20 shows on the screen. Note, the 2 is still stored as a constant without doing anything, just continue)
4 = (shows the answer 8 on the screen)
20 = (shows the answer 40 on the screen)
100 = (shows the answer 200 on the screen)

*** Constant Division ***
10 (divided by key)
2 =
(shows the answer 5 on the screen, the 2 is still stored as a constant without doing anything, just continue)
100 = (shows the answer 50 on the screen)
500 = (shows the answer 250 on the screen)
4 = (shows the answer 2 on the screen)

Also note! There is no K visible on the screen to indicate a constant is set.
