TI 92 Turns on but has a black screen.


This is expected behavior when batteries are replaced and you don't need to reset the device, simply adjust the contrast more than you would think it should take.
See the answer to a similar question at When powered on the LCD screen is dark blue.

I turned on my TI 89 calculator to take an online college test that is due by midnight, and my screen is completely black!..HELP


your contrast might be up to much.
try this:

hit the diamond key and then the minus key. this shoud decrease the contrast. keep reapeating these same steps until your home screen is visible. hitting the diamond key, then the plus key turns up the contrast.

I stop using my TI-86 for a few months and know


I hadn't used mine in years and had the same problem. Essentially you just need to give it a workout to get all the pixels working properly again and then it'll be just fine. I adjusted the contrast between full dark and nothing multiple times and turned the calculator on and off after each cycle and now it works like new.

New batteries, turned it on and screen is completely black.


First, try adjusting the contrast. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the down-arrow for a few seconds and see whether the screen lightens.

If that doesn't do it, remove all four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ON key for at least ten seconds. Replace the batteries.

If that doesn't do it, add a comment here and we'll go from there.

The following procedures will completely reset the calculator. Please, bear in mind that this will erase the memory of the calculator and restore all manufacturer's defaults.

• Hold down the following keys [2nd] [<] and [>] (right and left arrow keys)
• Press [ON]
• Release all the keys at the same time
• Adjust the contrast, if necessary

Black screen on TI-85 after changing batteries


You can increase the contrast by pressing and releasing the 2ND key, then pressing and holding the UP key. To decrease the contrast, use the DOWN key.

Screen fully black


Black-Screen/Black-Pixel Fix for TI-Calculator

This will erase all memory and reset defaults.

1. Remove 1 AAA Battery
2. Press and Hold 'ON' for 30 seconds
3. Replace AAA Battery
4. Adjust Contrast to appropriate level

If this fails, try again with ALL Batteries removed including
the backup Lithium Battery.

If all else fails, try the following reset procedure:

1. Remove ALL Batteries (inc. Backup)
2. Let Calculator sit with no batteries for 2~4 hours.
3. Hold 'ON' for 30 seconds.
4. Replace all the batteries (May be good idea to use new batteries
just in case old ones were dead)
5. Turn on Calculator
6. Change Contrast to appropriate level

- Remember to use correct batteries or calculator may not work. The
correct batteries are Alkaline, Rechargable Batteries are TOO WEAK,
Heavy Duty batteries are TOO STRONG.

You can try to turn the contrast down by pressing 2nd and then hold "down" If the screen does not fix, put new batteries in (including the back up batteries). The problem will be resolved. Hope this helps...
