Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator
My sons ti 84 plus is about two years old. Its kept in the outside pocket of his backpack,so it gets tossed around alot. the problem is no matter what button i press nothing happens. Ive put in new batteries and still nothing.Is there something i can do to fix it or is it just broken. thanks.
Since it gets tossed around a lot, it is possible though improbable that the batteries lose contacts with the electrical terminals.
You may try to darken the screen a bit.
1. Press [2nd] key and release it
2. Press [UpArrow] and release it.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 in sequence until contrast is satisfactory.
If that does not fix the problem, use a calc-to-calc cable and try sending something to it from a working calculator.
You can also download the TIConnect software from education.ti.com and install it on your computer. Then connect the calculator to the computer by means of a USB cable, a TISilverCable, or a TI Graphlink (Black cable). Turn the calculator ON, run TIConnect, connect calc-to-computer and Click TIDEVICEINFO in TIconnect main window.
If it tells you NOT FOUND, on any of the ports, click the communication settings: Set the device type to you calculator model. Set the cable type. Set the port (COM x) or USB1
If calculator is not detected through any of the available ports (COM ports, or USB), then it would suggest that calculator is in need of repairs.
Hope it helps.
