You darkened the screen. The solution is to lighten it.

Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the down-arrow key for a few seconds.

Calculator went dead ... changed the AAA batteries .. still nothing .. changed the CR1616 battery .. still nothing ... worked great last night while doing my homework .. didn't drop it or bang it .....


It is possible that the screen dimmed too much after you changed batteries. One of the two procedures will work.

Press the [2nd] key and release it.
Press the UpArrow and keep it held down for a while. As you hold pressure on UpArrow key the screen should darken. Stop when satisfied.

Alternative.

Press [2nd] key and hold pressure.
Press the UpArrow repeatedly until screen darkens to your liking.

Help!!a Black screen appears when I turn on my calculator


http://oakroadsystems.com/math/ti83oops.htm#Lines

ok guys, after about 10 years of not using my ti-83, i put the new batteries in and got the black screen you are all talking about.. came to this site.. saw no solutions.. kept looking.
I've fixed my calculator, but my brain won't tell me exactly how.. but i followed those instructions..
you CAN see what is on your screen if you tilt it under the light ... just fiddle around until you can see faint writing on your screen under the black.
Press window

i have these entries in my calculator
xmin=-10
xmax=10
xscl=1
ymin=-10
ymax=10
yscl=5
xres=2

then go and press second and the down arrow to lighten your screen. it should work.
