I tried to reset it but that didn't work also. is there a reason why this is happening? is there a way to fix it or is my calculator just dead? I bought it last year btw and I have not used it much, my exams are coming up soon!!

      The default is 12 Periods per year and you need to change that to 1 Period per year. Press 1 [Gold Shift] [P/YR]. If correctly set, when you press [Gold Shift] [C ALL] it should display 1 P_Yr. Then enter the appropriate TMV value to compute the FV. Read the following link for detail explanation... [URL] www.educalc.net/427084.page

    Hey, I am trying calculate amortization for mortgage loans, all the steps seem right as I go along but my answers always come out short between 2-12 dollars short. (I have tried the test & resetting the calculator, and the max amount of decimals are set to avoid rounding)
    $55,000 mortgage / interest rate/ 11%; amortization 25 years with monthly payments
    Here is what I am inputting..should the interest be put in differently I am wondering?
    12 then orange shift then P/YR
    25 then orange shift then xP/YR
    11 then L/YR
    55 000 then PV
    0 then FV

    FV? Answer: $1100 correct.
    ex 2)Same ques. as above...Ans: 1,008.33 ??

    Where is the CPT button or how to get CPT? - I am dealing with simple discount rate, number of periods problems and need this button for calculations.

      CPT is not a button. If you're calculating a rate, it will probably tell you to press "CPT I/YR", and this means press I/YR to get your answer
