Ti83 Plus - e0df163.jpg does it look something like the example I gave? Anyways, I don't think that it can be fixed. and you can either:
A.) have the screen fixed (approx. $100)
B.) buy a new calculator (approx. $85)
( the monetary figures are approxamate and should not be taken literally, the $85 is at least what I last saw one for @ a Wal-Mart)

I have attempted to transfer an inequalz app from on TI 84 plus calc. to another TI 83 plus via the black serial cable. I get the following on the screen of both calculators. ERR:memory 1:Quit 2: Goto...

The problem may be due to a lack of memory in the receiving calculator. Check size of the Inequalz application, the size of the archive memory left on the TI83 Plus, and the number of application spaces that Inequalz requires. An application may require 1,2 or more application spaces. You will have to go to to get the information.
Also, make sure that the batteries are good in both calculators.

Scrambled images on screen!!!

I think you may have an app that is interfering and running when it shouldn't. I'd try deleting or reset the calculator. When you put things back on don't do everything at once. A little at a time until you find out which is giving you problems.

Depends on what the black screen is caused by. If you review others on this site some have come up with a methods of keep hitting the 2nd key and left arrow key repeatly w/ success. Just depends. Some had problems because of 3rd party downloads and had to reset and reinstall to clear things up. Some had to connect to the computer and use ti connect device explorer to delete and reinstall even the os software. I guess it just depends on how far you make it to solving the problem. I had them that I couldn't fix or figure out.
