if someone laugh, he's the one that's wrong.
The HP34C is something like the HP11C with a LED display, vertical case instead of the horizontal one found in all Voyagers, no nPk (permutation) neither nCk (Combination), four flags instead of two, two direct access lables ([A] and [B] keys) instead of the five ones of the HP11C and its autotest is started with the sequence [STO][ENTER] instead of [ON]&[×] (or [ON]&[+]) of the HP11C. It uses rechargeable batteries and is older than the Voyagers ( it was introduced in the same month and year of the HP41C).
When applicable to the place it was commercialized, the Spices (HP34C include, of course) were available with a comma as radix mark. For example, in Brazil it's the standard representation. And to change this "condition" the only way is to change a jumper inside the calculator. I wonder if a small externaly accessible miniswitch would be applicable...
Hope this helps a bit. And never hold a question too long, mostly if there are teachers around you...
