To insure trouble-free operation of your SHARP calculator, we recommend the following:
1. Keep the calculator away from extreme heat such as on a car dashboard or near a
heater, and avoid exposing it to excessively humid or dusty environments.
2. Clean with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use solvents or a wet cloth. Avoid using a rough
cloth or anything else that may cause scratches.
3. Since this product is not waterproof, do not use it or store it where fluids, for
example water, can splash onto it. Raindrops, water spray, juice, coffee, steam,
perspiration, etc. will also cause malfunction.
4. If the battery for memory protection is not installed, the tax rate / discount and
conversion rate will be lost when the power supply is turned off. The tax rate
/ discount and conversion rate will be deleted even if the battery for memory
protection is removed.
5. Do not wind the AC cord around the body or otherwise forcibly bend or twist it.
6. Place the product near an easily accessible socket.
7. If service should be required, use only a SHARP servicing dealer, a SHARP
approved service facility or SHARP repair service.

economic or property damage caused by misuse and/or malfunctions of this product
and its peripherals, unless such liability is acknowledged by law.
USING THE CALCULATOR FOR THE FIRST TIME
First, pull out the insulation sheet for the memory protection battery (installed for
retaining the tax/discount rate and conversion rate information).
Removing the insulation sheet, and resetting

There are several situations which will cause an overflow or an error condition. When
this occurs, "E" will be displayed. The contents of the memory at the time of the error
If an "0•E" is displayed at the time of the error,
must be used to clear the calculator.
If an "E" with any numerals except zero is displayed, the error may be cleared with
and the calculation can still be continued.
Also, in rare cases, printing may stop midway and the indication "E" appear on the
display. This is not a malfunction but is caused when the calculator is exposed to
strong electromagnetic noise or static electricity from an external source. Should this
occur, press the
key and then repeat the calculation from the beginning.
1. Entry of more than 12 digits or 11 decimals. This error can be cleared with
2. When the integer portion of an answer exceeds 12 digits.
3. When the integer portion of the contents of the memory or grand total memory
exceeds 12 digits.
4. When any number is divided by zero.
REPLACEMENT OF BATTERY FOR MEMORY PROTECTION
Time for battery replacement
Replace with a new battery once a year. When the battery power becomes weak,
printing may be halted, and displayed images may disappear. If such symptoms are
observed, replace the batteries with new ones.
Battery: lithium battery, size CR2032 × 1
When replacing the battery, the set tax / discount rate and conversion rate, the
memory contents will be lost. You may want to write down the tax / discount rate and
conversion rate, other important numbers on a sheet of paper.
1. Press the power off key and unplug the power supply plug from the outlet.
2. Remove the battery cover on the back of the unit.
3. Remove the exhausted battery and install one new lithium battery. Wipe the battery
well with a dry cloth and place the plus "+" side upward.
4. Replace the battery cover by reversing the removal procedure.
5. Connect the power supply plug to an outlet, then press the RESET switch on the
back of the unit after pressing the power on switch.
After battery replacement
• Connect the power supply plug to an outlet and press the power on switch. Check
that "0." is displayed. If "0." is not displayed, remove the battery, reinstall it, and
check the display again.
• Reset the tax / discount rate.
• In the box on the right, fill in the month/year that you changed the battery, as a
reminder of when to change it again.
