My son's TI-83 calculator screen is very dark. The calculator appears to be working but I can barely read the screen. Any suggestions?


Try adjusting the screen contrast. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key, then press and hold the down-arrow key to darken the text. If you go too far, use the 2ND and up-arrow keys to lighten the text.

You are jumping the gun here. Try first to see if adjusting the contrast will not solve the "problem".

To LIGHTEN screen display.

Turn calculator ON by pressing the ON button.
Press the [2nd] key and release it (Press it just one time)
Press the down arrow and HOLD pressure (keep pressing).
The screen should start lightening up.
Release the Down Arrow when screen contrast is good enough for you.

As to the user manual, it contains no circuit diagram. If you want the manual to learn HOW TO USE the calculator, here is the link.

When I turn my TI-83 on I see a black screen....What can I do


Hi,
The screen contrast of the TI83Plus/TI84Plus/TI84PLUS SE can be adjusted to suit the user. Sometimes after the batterie have been replaced the screen contrast is reset to the factory defaults.
To adjust it to your liking.
  1. Press the [2nd] key and release it.
  2. Press and hold the Down Arrow key to lighten the screen or the UP arrow to darken it.
In your case, the screen is too dark, so in step 2 above you press and hold the Down arrow until the screen lightens enough.
Hope it helps.

My TI-83 Plus turns on but yields a dark screen with no blinking cursor thing. All I can do is turn it on and off. I have just put in new AAA batteries.


Try turning the contrast down. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Down-arrow key for a few seconds until the screen lightens.

It might just be that your contrast is really dark. I'm guessing this because if it turns dark then it must still work. so hit the "2nd" key and then hit the down arrow. Do this several time repeating those steps and it should lighten up. Good luck hope this helps alot
