Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
A week ago, I opened the case, and it said the ram was cleared, and now the only screen I can get is a solid black one, which I can sometimes get to go blank, and then when I turn it on, it shows the black screen and then immediately turns off.
Have you tried adjusting the contrast using second and the up and down arrows?

I found the solution on mathforum.com as well. What worked for me was doing a memory dump. Following are the instructions that I found: On 2006012917:15:08, silverHalo wrote: > > >One solution is doing a Memory Dump.

Hey, I had the same problem just now and found the solution on a math forum, the link is below. You probably already tried to adjust the contrast by holding down [2nd] and holding down [v] (=down arrow key). Instead try the following: Hold down [2nd] Hold down [v] Release [2nd] but not [v] and it will take the contrast back down to zero. What a relief, right? http://mathforum.org/t2t/discuss/message.taco?thread=1651&n=24
