Commodore 796

The Commodore 796 is an arithmetic calculator with algebraic logic. It has 5 functions, 19 keys, and an LED (light-emitting diode) display, typical of calculators of this era. The power source is PP3 9V. Note: A number of people comment on the "yellow" case of this model, but I am pretty sure these were originally beige. Over time the plastic has discoloured.

If you have a Commodore 796 that is no longer working, you can first try replacing the PP3 9V battery. If that doesn't solve the problem, then you can consider replacing the calculator with a modern equivalent. We suggest the following current models as possible replacements:
