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.

If that doesn't do it, remove all four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ON key for ten seconds. Replace the batteries. The calculator should come on (you may have to adjust the contrast as described earlier).

My TI-83 plus calculator doesn't work


As battery gets drained, the screen contrast dims. But when you change batteries, some times the contrast is reset to some low value and the screen appears dead: it is so light that you do not see anything, and you think the calculator is malfunctioning. This is the most frequent reason users think the calculator refuses to turn ON. And I hope that is the case now.
To correct that, you must increase screen contrast: draken the screen a bit. To do so
  1. press [2nd] key and release it.
  2. Press the Up arrow and HOLD pressure.
  3. Keep pressing the arrow key until screen is dark enough.
If that solve your problem that is good, rate the post accordingly.. If that does not, do not get irate and berate the post. Post a comment here describing what you did and what message (if any) calculator returned, and I will give you further diagnostic steps.

TI-83 countdown


Pressing 2nd then the up or down arrows is how you change the contrast on the TI-83. All you need to do is press the 2nd key then hold the down arrow to get your screen back. The countdown that you saw was just the value the calculator assigns to the contrast. It goes from 0-10.

Hope that helps!

TI-83 Plus Went Dead


Has it been dropped recently? The screen may have cracked from impact. Press the Reset button on the back using a ball point pen.
