When i turn my nspire on, both sides of the screen are dark blue and the rest of the screen is blank no matter what buttons i press. i have tried to switch batteries but i beleive my problem is with the screen itself. please help me out.
when the loading screen comes up there are black lines going up and down the screen and the loading bar is barely visible.
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.

1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, like the toshiba boot up screen or something like that. Or is it completely blank (black color) always.
2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). This is important to confirm.
3. Also, when you press power button, do you see the LED lights on laptop blinking or solid green (which ones are in blinking/solid) and do hear any sound ? Or do you feel that your laptop doesnt even try to boot.
4. Can you hear any Beeps when you try to turn on the computer. If yes, what is the sequence of those beeps.
If you answers are -
2. no image
3. only the satellite light is blue, the powercord is blue and the battery is blue
4. no noise
Please do the following carefully and let me know result : 1. Shutdown and Unplug your laptop. 2. Remove the battery from the laptop. 3. Wait 2-3 minutes 4. Now press ON (power button on laptop) for 1 minute 5. Then release the finger and wait one more minute. 6. Now plug in the power cable (dont insert battery yet) and press ON button. 7. Did your screen start working now ? (do you see windows loading)
Verify batteries are correctly inserted (I have to rule this out) and that the polarity diagrams are respected.
Try to turn the calculator ON with the TI-Nspire keyboard and with the TI84Plus keyboard.
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 straightenedpaper clip.
If all fails, I suggest you reinstall the Operating system. The procedure is detailed in this article.
Hello, Here is what the TI knowledge base says about a calculator failing to turn on
For the TI-Nspire™ Family:
Remove thekeypad (for TI-Nspire) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS) andremove at least 1 battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5seconds, reinsert the batteries and turn the unit on. This will causethe unit to reboot the operating system.
Remove the keypad(for TI-Nspire) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS) and remove atleast 1 battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5 seconds,reinsert the batteries and LEAVE THE UNIT OFF (do not turn on and thenback off). Hold down [Home] [Enter] [P], and while holdingthese keys, press [On]. The device will boot up as in the previousreset, but will display a menu with the following options. Please tryoptions 1, 2, 3, and 4 in that order. ** The [Home] key is located atthe top right of the TI-Nspire keypad and has a picture of a house onit.
Note: • TI-Nspire family model options 2 and 4 above require that the OS be installed. The reset menu will only display if the unit is off and batteries have been removed/replaced as described above.
1. Cancel - The most non-intrusive reset option; no changes are made, the unit restarts. 2. Delete Operating System – The operating system will be deleted without deleting any documents. 3. Delete Document Folder Contents – This will delete the user’s documents, but will not delete the OS. 4. Complete Format – This will delete the OS and all documents for a total erase of memory.
When holding the power button, to turn on the device, the screen pixelates dark and then goes blank. If I continue to hold the power button the screen will continue to pixelate dark and then go blank. In the end, the device still will not turn on.
Ok, from the beginning. Can you do a cold boot and get into the bios? (is there an image on the screen then)
Secondly, can you connect to an external monitor and see an image?
Did it do this only when it was heading in to hibernation? If so, it sounds like the power management needs some adjustment.
If there's no image on the external monitor, you may have a video/motherboard problem, or it still could be the operating system/power management.
It all depends on if you have video in bios.
Let me know.
