Manual may possibly be wrong

HP Recommended
HP 10bII+ Financial Calculator

 I just download the manual for this calculator. On page 30 it states to clear all and reset calculator to press down and hold ON, N and PV and that we should see an ALL CLEAR message. I do not. I looked around the web and found that the keys are ON, N, and FV. What I get is COPr HP 2010 then ALL CLEAR.

 

Just in case, what appears to be the serial number on back is CNA4170B33

 

Can some one please check this please

Much Appriciated

Hi,

ON, N and FV together reset the calculator.

Page 30 of the manual is indeed wrong. The correct procedure is given in appendix A.

Interesting point: since the mid 80's HP calculators can be reset by pressing left bottom, left top and right top keys together.

Thank You All for your feed back.

One would think that in the day and age of PDFs, that the manual would be kept up to date with out having to go to appendex? There is something called revisions or is that not proper now? #Revisionists Unite

Thanks Again.
