I've had my ti-86 for a very long time & recently it just quit working. I changed the AAA batteries & the back up battery & it will not come back on. Please help???!!!!


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible. Does it?

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.

My TI 86 is 6 years old and I have taken careof it well.


Try pressing (lightly) on the bottom border below the screen. If there is no change, try the top. If there is still no change, the power for your LCD may have become disconnected or shorted. There are external displays for these calculators intended for overhead projectors. If your school has one, you could try hooking it up to make sure the calculator itself still works.

In either case, it would be better to purchase a new calculator.

Good Luck!

Blank lines across the screen of a TI-86 graphing calculator


Try this, hook up new battery and go to MODE and darken and lighten the screen.. do it ten to fifteen times. if that doesn't help, try hook up most left and most right's battery terminal to a DC supply at 4.5V. dont go above 4.5 it will fry your calc (it is design to handle 3V). now you are forcing extra juice into the dead LCD screen lines... and reapeat the MODE + darken trick. I fixed mine like that! Works! and remeber to leave it completely black(darkest) for a while to keep that dead line alive!

TI-82 display isn't fully working


This happens alot with calculators that have been in storage for a while, you can fix this by taking the batteries out and let it sit overnight.

Texas instruments ti-86 screen problem


The TI-86 uses a very small, very thin ribbon cable to connect the display board to the LCD. The cable is about 2.5 " wide and about 4" long, and is only slightly thicker than a piece of paper but has about 40+ leads buried inside. Over time the leads will break at the folds (there are at least two folds in this cable to fit it down inside the case). There is no cheap solution to fix this problem. You might have some "Mr. Fix-it" try to fix it, but he will tell you to throw it away after he renders it completely inoperable. The calculator uses two Torx bit screws at the bottom of the case (T-6 size) so you will have to get the correct screwdriver to open the case. Save your money, sanity and time and use it till you can't stand the missing lines and throw it out. Even the data cable looks like it is glued down so if it lifts off after being cooked or frozen a couple of dozen times in the back of your car you can't fix this.

Ti 86


Hi I got a problem with Ti-86 which is a line of the screen pixel missing. I tried to increase and decrease the intensity of the screen (2nd and up, down). Also tried to go to MODE function. I have tried those for several times. It works great. The line of those missing screen pixel came back. I don't know why. Just try it.

Random characters lines and pixels


I've had a similar problem in the past with my TI-86. It still happens sometimes when I don't use it for a while. To fix it, all I did was set the screen to its darkest setting and left it on for 10 minutes (keep it from turning itself off, by pushing buttons every few minutes.) It works great, and the calculator is fine unless you leave it unused for a month or so. A similar solution may work for you.
