Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
Try Adjusting contrast:
Hold down "[2nd]" key press up or down arrow repeatedly to lighten or darken contrast.
First attempt reseting:
Step 1: Remove all the batteries
Step 2: Hold "Clear" key down
Step 3: Still holding "Clear" key reinstall batteries
Step 4: Still holding "Clear" key press "On" key until home screen is displayed.
Second shot reseting:
remove all batteries including lithium ion (backup battery), wait 3 hours and reinstall batteries.
Third Shot reseting:
Step 1: Remove a battery
Step 2: Hold down "DEL" key reinstall battery
Step 3: Possible msg pops up saying "Waiting ... Please install software" IGNORE msg and take out battery again
Step 4: Reinstall battery do not hold down "DEL" key
reseting will cause the handheld to loose all of its stored memory.
Other than that you will probably need to buy a new calculator
Hope that helps!
