Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
I have a display problem, the print on the screen is so light that I can barely read it. I have replaced the batteries but it didn't make the numbers and letters show up better screen. Any suggestions?
Have you attempted darkening the display on the calculator through the function keys? Push "2nd" and then push "up" a few times. After resetting the calculator, this setting will always revert to a lower, unreadable setting. I'm sure TI knows about this, but they probably arent too inclined to fix it.

How to Change the Brightness of the Display
To darken the display, press the yellow 2nd button and then press and hold down the Up-Arrow button located in the upper right section of the keypad. Release the Up-Arrow button when the display has reached the desired level of darkness.
To lighten the display, press the yellow 2nd button and then press and hold down the Down-Arrow button. Release the Down-Arrow button when the display has reached the desired level of lightness.
As you go through this process, a number will appear at the top right corner of the display. If this number is 7 or higher when your screen reaches the desired level of brightness, then your batteries are getting low and may need replacing soon. This number will be approximately 3 or 4 for new batteries.
