    i have the same exact problem!!! i don't know why but everytime i turn on the TI 83 plus, i get a dark, blank screen with pixels filled in. None of the buttons work, and the only ones that do, are the ones that turn it on and off. I've tried replacing the batteries, but it still doesn't work!!! please help, I really don't want to buy a new one. Thanks!

    i have the same problem!
    i tried shaking it and then it worked like 3 or 4 times then it just turns bad again.

    I am having what I think is the same problem. I have included a screenshot of what I see when I turn my calculator on. Only the on/off functionality works. 2nd -> Quit does nothing. Changing the contrast (2nd -> up or down) also does nothing.



  • dustyjr6 Jul 18, 2008

    Also, I have tried removing all of the batteries (including the backup), for varying intervals, up to 24 hours, and still nothing. I tried 2nd -> Mode nada. 2nd -> + -> 7 -> 1 -> 2 (reset memory) also did nothing.

    Yes, the problem is same. Only on and off key works rest of others are not working.

  • engineeri328 Oct 28, 2008

    I have the same problem however if I turn the calc on and then type random numbers, then turn the calc off then on I get a fleeting view of the numbers before it returns to the black square. Tried contrast, graph and batteries with no success! HELP!

If it is a screen with a pattern of dots then it might be in a graphing mode with a grid showing, does pressing 2nd quit do anything? Have you tried removing the batteries and the lithium battery and then putting them back in, let me know the outcome of these trials and I will try to figure this out for you

The touch screen on my singer quantum xl-1000 lights up but no icons are showing. What should I do?


I have instructions for recalibrating the screen on an XL-6000, which is similar enough that it should work; however, give it a try at your own risk. I would point out, though, that at this point you probably have nothing to lose.

While the machine is turned off, you hold down the scissors button, reverse button, and the green/red light button all at the same time. While pressing these buttons, you turn your machine on and can let go of the buttons. You take the pointy end of your lint brush and use it as a stylus to touch a little red dot on the screen (that also has that pen looking thing that I had messed with and that caused my trouble), the dot will move to another position and you will touch it again. It moves again two more times, and each time you will touch it with the pointy end of the brush. Then you will touch the treasure chest box on the screen to save what you did. You will then turn off the machine and turn it back on, and then things work again!

When I switch the device on it comes up with press dot screen


Have you tried a screen calibration? Turn off the unit then press and hold the upper left of the screen as you turn it on. A dot will show up on screen and then press the dot firmly as it moves around the screen. When it is done it will say screen calibration complete.
I also assume you tried a reset by pressing the reset button or on the newer units just hold the power button while turning it on for about 15 seconds until it reboots.

My Garmin nuvi 200w behaves erratically until it has been turned on and warmed up for around 10 minutes. Before this time the touch screen may not work or when pressed respond as if pressed at another...


First make sure the batteries are good and at normal room temperature.
Second, based on your question your touch screen is bad or needs calibrating....
Then

Touch screen on hp laserjet m 3027 mfp not working


turn of the printer. Hold the C and # buttons and turn on the printer. When the screen goes black it will be ready to be re calibrated. there is a white dot, touch it with a pen, another white dot appears, touch it with a pen. It will continue to turn on now with a newly calibrated screen.
