On TI-83 How do you change the batteries?

We have a TI-83 and the screen has faded. We assume we need to change the batteries but cannot seem to remove the cover to do this.

Try pressing the 2nd key and then holding down the up arrow key first.  This changes the contrast on the screen- makes it darker.  Pressing the 2nd key and then holding down the down arrow key will make the screen lighter

How do i turn on my TI-83 when i already put batteries inside? at first the numbers would fade away but now it dosent want to even 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. 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'll go on from there.

Reinstalling the OS fot the TI84Plus

Howdo I correct the Error Waiting...Please Install Calculator SoftwareNowmessage on my TI-83 Plus family or TI-84 Plus family calculator?

If an operating system (OS) update fails or is interrupted, the calculator will be in an inoperable state with the message Waiting...Please install calculator software now.Themost common cause of a transfer being interrupted is updatingthe operating system on a calculator with low batteries.

In order to install the software please follow these steps:
1. Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the computer and the calculator.
2. Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader
3. Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS.
If themessage "Error! Press any key to turn unit off. Then turn unit back on."appears on the graphing calculator, quickly, remove one battery from thecalculator and reinstall it while the transfer is taking place.
