Ah, the question that will not go away. It gets asked at least once a week. How is it that two year olds are so talented? Mine hide my car keys in a box of nails in the garage. I found them three years later...

Turn the unit off. Press and hold the decimal point key. Press the ON button. Presto, it's fixed.

Doing this again will toggle it back to the comma separator.
