Summary: I have a 12C that is over 15 years old that works great. Bought a new one for work. The new one shows "PR ERROR" all the time. There is some guidance out there about pulling out the batteries & using a paperclip to reset it. Seems ridiculous but I tried it and it worked for maybe a day or so.
Summary: My first HP12C calculator, which I purchased in 1998/1999, was perfect until someone stole it 4 years ago. Since then, I've gone through 2 of them It appears that they are not made to last and seem to breakdown quickly with keys sticking, incorrect outcomes (yes I know how to clear the previous...

Summary: I purchased it to replace the same unit that I have used for over 10 years. It has not worked properly since the day I received it. I shows "pr error" when turned on and takes several attempts to get it working.

Summary: My old HP 12C lasted for 30 years, and I had no problems at all with it. It was just time to replace it. The new one that I purchased is starting to have calculation problems already (in 9 months time). It is the only financial calculator that I have ever used.
