That means that you know your calc crashed. This can be caused by taking out the batteries durring running time, happened just randomly. Well nothing to fear just press clear and it should go away but if it stays on that screen you have problems and is best to try some of these methods. Take out all the bateries and press and hold the on button for 30 seconds. Put the batteries back in and it should have reset. Warning you should archive everything incase this happens. To archive go to 2nd mem and hit enter to put a astrick next to the app (meaning archived)

The "color" on your screen reset to dark. You can adjust it by pressing "2nd" and the "up" arrow (or "2nd" and "down" arrow) repeatedly.

SOURCE: my TI-83 plus calculator doesn't work

As battery gets drained, the screen contrast dims. But when you change batteries, some times the contrast is reset to some low value and the screen appears dead: it is so light that you do not see anything, and you think the calculator is malfunctioning. This is the most frequent reason users think the calculator refuses to turn ON. And I hope that is the case now.
To correct that, you must increase screen contrast: draken the screen a bit. To do so

  1. press [2nd] key and release it.
  2. Press the Up arrow and HOLD pressure.
  3. Keep pressing the arrow key until screen is dark enough.
If that solve your problem that is good, rate the post accordingly.. If that does not, do not get irate and berate the post. Post a comment here describing what you did and what message (if any) calculator returned, and I will give you further diagnostic steps.

I have an old TI-83 and there are vertical lines across the screen which have dead pixels, I assume. Can this be repaired or do I have to buy a new one.


While someone skilled in electronics may be able to fix it with enough time, the cost in time and labor would far outweigh the cost of a new calculator.

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.

On TI-83 How do you change the batteries?


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

i had the same problem, so i took all of the batteries out (including the back-up battery) and then i hit the on button a few times. i then proceeded to reinstall all of the batteries, AAA first, and then the back-up battery after the calculator was already on. it works great now.

My TI-83 is all messed up


Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your TI-83. The TI-83 is a discontinued calculator, so I really don't think that it can be repaired/replaced.

See TI's website below for more information:

Line across the screen


If it's just a single line then it sounds like that the screen is not connected probably or is shot...

if it's more of a "flurry" or snow... then you can connect to another unit via the I/O cable or usb if your model has it, and use the "send OS" command to start from scratch and lose all data but have a working calculator.

Try replacing both the AAA batteries and the back-up batteries. This should probably fix the problem.

Horizontal lines obstructing the second half of the ti 83 calculator screen, anyone know repair tips?


I had the same prob with vertical lines on the screen, and getting messed up when there was lots of numbers on the screen.

Solution: Change your batteries. Put some freshies in then adjust your contrast until you see the little black box. If you still have a problem with the lines, darken the screen until it's black (2nd up repeatedly) and let it sit for a couple minutes. Lighten your screen back to normal (2nd down) and turn off then turn her back on.
