Try to reset everything to see if that helps. If it doesn't , you can try to upgrade your operating system on the calculator to see if that helps to make it go away.
If that doesn't help try this:
"Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [CLEAR] key. While holding [CLEAR], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display the message "RAM Cleared". Release the [CLEAR] key and then press it one more time to remove the message."
Let me know how it goes.

I just got this calculator and i was looking at the features and the screen suddenly turned black and every pixel is filled in.


It may be that the screen resolution has changed. To change the screen resolution, turn the calculator on, pres the 2nd button and then hold the down arrow. If this is the problem, the screen should lighten up. Similarly, you can darken the screen by using the up arrow.

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.

My ti - 83 hasn't been used in a while, placed new batteries in it and all i get is dark screen.....it won't even turn off......there is just a dark screen......any ideas what causing this and how to fix...


The most probable cause (at least I hope so) is that the screen got too dark after you changed the batteries. It is a common occurrence: Screen becomes too dark or too light.
To adjust the screen contrast:
  1. Press ^2nd key and release it.
  2. Press and HOLD the DownArrow key until screen lightens to your taste.

When I turn the calculator on, I get a black screen. It won't go away.


Most likely the screen contrast is too high. Try to lighten screen
Press [2nd] key and release it
Press and Hold [DownArrow] until screen lightens to your liking.

As you keep pressing DownArrow, the top right corner shows a number that decreases as the screen lightens.

The screen is black when I turn it on. I've replaced the batteries and no change. I try to change the contrast and nothing happens. It is a couple years old, but I should still work.


Hi,
Check that the terminals in the battery compartment are clean and shiny. Remove any powder left after battery leakage. Insert fresh batteries in calculator. Make sure you respect the polarity diagram. +-+- (Many malfunctions come from incorrectly placed batteries).

To adjust the screen: Darken or lighten display

To darken screen
Press [2nd] key and release it.
Press and hold [UpArrow] until screen is dark enough.

To lighten screen
Press [2nd] key and release it.
Press and hold [DownArrow] until screen is light enough.

Hope it helps.
