 HP200LX Lease with Advance PaymentsMessage #1 Posted by Bob Wang on 3 Aug 2004, 4:33 p.m. ```To anyone who has a 200LX: Would you be so kind as to try the following solver equation on your unit? Apparently there are some characters the 200LX does not like: PMT=(- (1+PTS÷100) × CST – (RV%÷100)×CST × (SPPV ( I%YR ÷ 12 : N ) ) ) ÷ (USPV ( I%YR ÷ 12 : N - #ADV) + #ADV) AND if it would not be too much trouble, could you please post a version with the problematic characters stripped out? I don't have a 200LX, otherwise I'd do it myself. Thanks very much, Bob```

Of course, the 95lx, 100lx, 200lx use commas instead of colons. My 95lx display bit the dust last year, so I couldn't try it out. BUT, I pulled out the manual, which is what I probably should have done in the first place :-) Bob```

In your equation you used high ascii for the multiplication symbol (ascii 158) - that would bother the 200LX which just uses ascii42 - the *
