TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming or darkening the screen when the batteries are changed. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Down-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

This is from TI FAQS:

For the TI-83 Plus Family, TI-84 Plus Family:

Screen obstruction TI-83 Plus Graphing Calculator


Hello,
The liquid crystal is damaged. I suppose the screen can be replaced. Check with Texas Instruments resellers (usually academic bookstores): they may be able to tell you where you can have the calculator serviced.

You can post an ad on the college bulletin board

OK for batteries to be dead
But calculator must be alive.

Hope it helps.
