You should press the 2nd and then hold the down arrow to cahnge the contrast. If that doesn't work then you should try resetting the calculator by taking both the back up and main batteries for 45 seconds.

When pressing the on button . goes from light to dark nothing else


Either you need to change the batteries or you need to adjust your contrast. To adjust the contrast, press [2nd] [down arrow] or [up arrow] to adjust it lighter or darker. From your description, it sounds like you need to press the down arrow to make it lighter. Hope this solution helps. Reply back if it doesn't.

T1 83 was working fine but when i replaced the batteries it does not come on


First make sure that the batteries are fresh and that they are inserted with their poles in the proper position. Secondly hit the "2nd" key and hold down up. This is the contrast adjuster which makes the screen images lighter or darker. I have seen many students complain about a broken calculator when it is just not adjusted properly.
Good Luck

This really sounds like a problem with the contrast. Try this: turn the calculator on; press the second key, and then press and hold down. This she reduce the dark contrast.
