If calculator uses batteries, change the batteries. If it uses solar polar, expose it to direct sunlight or a powerful artificial light (lamp).
Also , in the Mode or Setup menu look for a contrast setting procedure. If nothing works, just buy another calculator and retire this one to the museum of calculators.

Screen brightness adjust key


There is no key to adjust the screen contrast on the TI 30 XII S. You can try to reset the calculator by pressing 2nd 0.
It is possible that you have kept this solar-powered calculator too long in the dark. Give it some light.

My son's TI-83 calculator screen is very dark. The calculator appears to be working but I can barely read the screen. Any suggestions?


Try adjusting the screen contrast. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key, then press and hold the down-arrow key to darken the text. If you go too far, use the 2ND and up-arrow keys to lighten the text.

Everything i enter in my calculator barely shows up on my screen


This seems like a problem with the calculators contrast; Here's what to do:
Press the 2nd and up key. This should darken the characters.
If that does not work; it could be that the battereies are almost exhausted and need to be replaced. In the event you replace the batteries and the screen is then too dark simply press the 2nd and down keys to readjust it.
Happy Calculating

Hello,
After the change of batteries, the screen reverted to default contrast. You should try to darken the screen.
Press and hold the [Diamond] key and tap the [+] key. Keep at it until screen is dark enough.
Hope it helps.
