Strange character to the left of "0.00" in HP 12c Platinum display

HP Recommended
HP 12c Platinum

I just purchased an HP 12c Platinum and the display has a funny character to the left of the "0.00" display while in RPN format.  It looks like a period with a comma coming out of it, and goes away when you press the CLX key.  Does anyone know what this is?

If you mean the curved arrow directed down anticlockwise it is undo sign, which appears after some operations performed, which can be undone. It appears in RPN and ALG mode and disappears after any keypress. Only single operation can be undone, some operations cannot be undone. Check in the manual which one. To undo an operation, for example CLX, press blue g key and then the "/" .

Thank you for your reply, but unfortunately that is not the problem.  The strange character is to the left of the display "0.00."  It is parallel to the "RPN" subscript.

Ah yes, of course!  I had read that the Platinum version allowed a backspace feature but didn't realize this is it.

Thank you very much for your help!!!

Pls provide us a picture of the display with this sign or at least a key sequence starting from power ON, which makes this sign appear, to give us a chance to see it.

Try fCLX to make the sign appear,  then g followed by the division sign to undo the operation.
