Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
I got a TI-83 silver edition plus, but she left the device for so long. Since when I get the device, I replace all the betteries(including the back up bettery), and it still won't trun on. is there anyway i can get the device work normally? Thank you so much for your help!
Note you should never change the main batteries and the backup battery at the same time.
To solve your problem
Try to increase the contrast
1. Turn calculator on
2. press [2nd] and release button
3. Press [UpArrow] and release button
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until contrast is adequate.
If that does not work use the link below to install TIConnect software
Install it on your computer and run it to oppen the main Window. Then connect you calculator to a USB port and, in the TIConnect main window Click the TIConnect TIDeviceInfo. It will try 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 try OK..
If all that does not work, then it may be time look for a repair shop.
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.
Hope it helps
