Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold CLEAR while reinstalling the AAA battery. Continue holding CLEAR button and press ON. Release buttons and press CLEAR again.

My ti-83 wont turn on. I changed all the batteries including the back up. Before i changed the back up i put in 4 new AAA batteries and then the screen went black. I tried adjusting the contrast but it...


I am sorry that I could not respond earlier. I am not sure of this but I think you can remove the back up battery and also the main battery, check the cells to see if there was a drain on the new cells , if so there is a short in the unit. If not keep aside for few hours and then replace the back up and then the main cells.
If there is no display there is some issue on the motherboard and might need a consensus.

I have had my ti 83 plus since fall 2005. recently the calculator has informed me to change the batteries. So i replace the backup battery and the main batteries. now it wont even turn on. Help.


The screen may be too dim to read. Try pressing 2ND->Up arrow key repeatedly while the calculator is turned on and it may darken the screen enough so you can read it.

I haven't used my TI-83 Plus in a few years and now i need it. I changed the batteries and tried to turn it on. It won't turn on. I'm thinking maybe I need to change the back-up battery?


The backup battery is only to retain the contents of memory while you change the main batteries. It does not affect the operation of the calculator in any other way.

TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post and we can go on from there.

I changed batteries and now the screen is black. How do I fix it?


Hello, it sounds like your contrast needs adjusting. Turn your calculator on; press the "2nd" key and down. The contrast should adjust.
Happy calculating

Reduce the contrast.

TI-83 screen is black


The "color" on your screen reset to dark. You can adjust it by pressing "2nd" and the "up" arrow (or "2nd" and "down" arrow) repeatedly.

My TI 83 + won't turn on


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on at all. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

TI 83 Plus won't turn on after battery change


I was having the same problem...I found the info below on another blog and it helped me fix my calculator problem. Take out all the batteries, hold the DEL button and put the batteries back in (keep holding the DEL button until all batteries are put back in). This will restart the calculator and restore it to its default settings...but it makes it work again!

"Reflashing the OS is probably the thing to do now. I think there's some trick that throws the calc into OS receiving mode. Hold down DEL while putting the batteries in? I don't remember if that's it. Go to 1-800-TI-CARES/ti-cares@ti.com if you need specifics on getting the calc to take an OS upload given the state it's in."

You should press the 2nd and then hold the down arrow to cahnge the contrast. If that doesn't work then you should try resetting the calculator by taking both the back up and main batteries for 45 seconds.
