Question about Texas Instruments TI-86 Calculator
I haven't used my TI 86 in awhile. When I turned it on, the screen has these stratified black lines. Inbetween the lines I can kind of see the cursor, but if I punch in number they're are totally obscured by the black background. I've alreay bought new batteries for it. I know how to lessen and darken the background on the calculator and that is not it. Maybe I dropped it? Is there anyway it can be fixed besides trying to hit the dang thing again ;)
I've had a similar problem in the past. With mine though it was white lines. It still happens sometimes when I don't use it for a while. To fix it, all I did was set the screen to its darkest setting and left it on for 10 minutes (keep it from turning itself off, by pushing buttons ever few minutes.) It works great, and the calculator is fine unless you leave it unused for a month or so. A similar solution may work for you.
