    Seems to be the same problem. If hooked to the TI-NSpire Computer Link, I can get a screen shot which shows the calculator is on, but I can't see anything on the screen itself. Tried adjusting the contrast, using the reset button, and the hard reset key combination with no change in what I can see.

    I am having the same problem with my TI-Nspire screen. It has come on once and it is not the contrast. It looks like the screen is dying.

Mine had a problem like that, just that the screen had become blue. I later found out that someone had gone to the contrast mode and made my screen that way. I am sure we have the same problem, but you can try and see. Wish you luck.

• Remove the keypad (for TI-Nspire with ClickPad, TI-Nspire with TouchPad, and TI-Nspire CAS with Touchpad) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS with ClickPad) and remove at least one battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5 seconds, reinsert the batteries but do not turn the handheld on.

I've tried to update my Calculator but now when i trie to turn the calculator on it gets stuck: The bar is at 100% and its says Loading operationg system.... I've waited for more than 1 hour and nothing!...


On the back of your NSpire there should be a small button that says 'reset'. Using a pencil or similar instrument, press this button and then try turning on your kindle.

If this fails to work, remove the batteries for around 30 seconds. Then replace them and turn on your nspire.

I had not used the calculator in a year. I replaced the batteries. The calculator will not turn on.


Here are some quick tests.
  1. Verify batteries are correctly inserted (I have to rule this out) and that the polarity diagrams are respected.
  2. Try to turn the calculator ON with the TI-Nspire keyboard and with the TI84Plus keyboard.
  3. With the TI84Plus keyboard in place, try to adjust the contrast of the screen by
  • pressing the [2nd] key and releasing it.
  • Then press [UpArrow] to darken the screen if it is too light OR the DownArrow if screen is too dark.
If you fail to get any meaningful response from the calculator, put the TI-Nspire keyboard in place/ Make sure you do not press the ON key (put the slide cover to protect screen and keyboard) and press the RESET button on the back of the calculator. For that, use a straightened paper clip.

If all fails, I suggest you reinstall the Operating system. The procedure is detailed in this article.

My Ti-nspire won't turn on. Replaced batteries


Same thing happened to me. I replaced the batteries, and now it won't progress past the start-up loading screen. It just loads and freezes. I had to remove the batteries just to turn it off.
