Hello, First you should try to reduce contrast Press [2nd] yellow key and release it Press [DownArrow] key then release it Keep doing the 2 steps in sequence untill the screen is lighter. If that does not solve your problem
Use the link below to install TIConnect software
http://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/productDetail/us_ti_connect.html You can also download the latest OS there.

Install TI connect on your computer and run it to open the main Window. Then connect you calculator to a USB port and, in the TIConnect main window Click the TIDeviceInfo icon. Software will try to retrieve the info. If it does your calculator is fine.

If it tells you Device Not found , Click communication settings in same pop up window where it said Not found, and Select Device, Select Cable, Select Port and Click OK..

If you are lucky and it works, you should reinstall the OS, which can be downloaded from education.ti.com. You drag and drop the OS on the TIconnect main window. Calculator must of couse be connected to computer.

If you have problem with TIconnect, use the calc-to-calc cable to transfer the OS of a working calculator. Yous should be on Receive mode [2nd][Link] --->>Receive. (When both calculators are ready hit enter.) The other calculator, you guessed exactly right, must be on Send [2nd][Link][SEND][G:SendOS]. (When both calculators hit [ENTER])

If all that does not work, then it may be time to head for a place of worship to pray for its resurection, or look for a repair shop.
Hope it helps

Adjust the screen contrast. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the down-arrow key for a few seconds to lighten the screen. If you go too far, repeat the process using the 2ND and up-arrow keys.

Everytime i turn on my ti-83 plus the black box covers the whole screen and wont operate no matter what button i press


This really sounds like a problem with the contrast. Try this: turn the calculator on; press the second key, and then press and hold down. This she reduce the dark contrast.
Good Luck

Black screen with full batteries no responsing on any button


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 that doesn't work, post a comment here and we'll go on to the next step.

You should press the 2nd and then hold the down arrow to cahnge the contrast. If that doesn't work then you should try resetting the calculator by taking both the back up and main batteries for 45 seconds.

Screen not displaying whole letters because of horizontal and vertical lines


I've had the same problem. A temporary fix that I have found is to turn up the contrast all the way (press [2nd] then hold down the up arrow) until the screen becomes mostly black. Then turn the contrast back down (press [2nd] then hold down the down arrow) until it is at a normal level. If you can get rid of all the white lines when you turn up the contrast the screen will be back to normal. Unfortunately this does not permanently fix the problem because I cannot get rid of all the lines and it seems to be getting progressively worse each time it start up the calculator.
