Calculator will not print

Ti-5045 calculator won't print I think the print head is worn, I have changed the ink pad several times but now it won't print. I took the paper guide out just now and turned it on and the printer worked the first time then it seemed to jam, and with the printer switch on I get a 0 for the numerical, plus a right arrow on the display. the printer pads seem to have ink. thanks , Jose'

I don't think you'll find parts for this, however I did find a used one, buy it now, for less than $20, shipped: Buying a used unit and either replacing yours or using it for parts is probably your best bet.

I need a TI-5045 ink roller or IR-40T ink roller. Where do I get it?

I use the IR40T it is a generic brand that works just as well & is easier to find in stores. Any office supply store carries these ink rollers eg: Staples (if there is one close to you)

Where can I purchase a print roller for the TI 504511 calculator? On-line, Office Depot, etc? I live in Nashville TN.

Go to Staples for the Porelon PR-42 ink roller. A single pack goes for $7.49 + tax, & a 2-pack (the better value) goes for $9.49 + tax.

After 20 yrs. of use, it seems to need more ink. I have the TI-504511 Model calculator. Can the ink be replaced??? I can't even see where the ink pad/roll is, so I'm thinking I have to just buy another...

If you remove the clear plastic cover from over the printer you will see the print head. With the power off if you gently push the print head it will move left/right. Notice that the top of the print head moves. There should be a small tab on the left side of the top - mine has 'pull up' embossed on it. The print roller is fixed on its underside.
So yes it can be replaced, if you can find a new one
