Unscrew the six small screws on the back with a small phillips cross head screwdriver (an eye glass screwdriver works fine), then carefully prise off the back using a flat blade in the two slots at the top of the calculator.

Keep it upside down or the display will fall out!

You'll see the two 1.5 volt alkaline batteries there, GPA-76 type (flat, round) in mine. Ease them out carefully and replace them, positive side up.

Alternative battery codes (manufacturer dependent) L1154, AG13, GA13, AG76, GP76A, 675HR, LR1154, LR44 per battery web sites, maybe others.

Make sure batteries are seated and display is in its correct position, replace back cover and six screws.

Caveat 1 : You can buy the TI-30XA for about $10-$13 at Staples/Amazon, two batteries will set you back around $5-$7!! But they last a couple years even with heavy use. TI-36X and TI-30X IIS are better calculators and have solar cells as well.....but about twice the price at $17-$25.

Caveat 2: I had one of these where the display faded, replaced batteries, did nothing because circuit board or display was bad. So you could replace batteries and waste the time/money.

What kind of batteries and where can I find batteries for my TI-30A?


I hope you mean the TI-30XA, since TI never released a TI-30A.

The TI-30XA uses two A76 batteries, also known as 357. You should be able to find them at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.

Display is really light


there's no way to adjust the contrast on the TI-30XA unfortunately. you can try changing the batteries but beyond that, there's not much you can do.
