I have read that to invert the LCD-screen you just flip the polarisation-plate (the plastic film that sits over the LCD display) 180º, that is, upside down.
Did you or someone opened your calculator? He might have reassembled it wrong. Or was it a prank?
If that was not the case, your best change is to reset the calculator and see if it solves your problem.
To manually reset your graphing calculator:

  • Remove all AAA batteries.
  • Remove the back up lithium battery.
  • Leave the unit empty for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • After the 5 to 10 minutes, place all the batteries back into the graphing calculator.

This process should restore the graphing calculator to the factory settings.

Good Luck!

Screen upside down


I have seen a lot of questions of this sort but I have never this this inversion in a calculator. You could try to reinstall the Operating system. For the TI83 Plus, the last OS version is 1.19. If it is a TI84Plus/TI83 Plus Silver Edition the OS version number is around version 2.55 MP.

Hope it helps.

Numbers are upside down. How do I turn them around?


Hello,
Frankly, I would love to see that. More seriously, now, if problem is software related you may be able to recover you calculator.

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. It will try retrieve the info.If it does your calculator is fine. Fill the screen with letters, symbols, numbers, and use TI connect ScreenCapture icon and compare the image with the actual screen. This may serve as a diagnostic tool in case you have to take calculator for repairs.

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 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 are ready 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

Screen is upside down as I type


Wow. Just wow. How did that person do that?! Anyways, try resetting ALL of the memory, and see if that helps, if not, ask the student what she did so that it can be reversed (probably by doing the same steps in the opposite order.
