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.

My TI-83 PLUS wont turn on


Remove one battery from the calculator and then press and hold down the CLEAR key while re-installing the battery. While continuing to hold down the CLEAR key, press and hold down the ON key. If this doesn't work, then hold DEL and then ON. If unsuccessful, remove all the batteries, including the lithium watch battery, and leave the calculator like that for a while.

This is documented in the TI-83 Plus Guidebook, but unfortunately, not many people know about it.


If that doesn't work, send it to TI for repair. They probably won't even charge you!

I put in new batteries; calculator turned on but I could not clear the screen nor input any thing. Now it wont turn on.


Open the back of your calculator. There is a backup battery behind a little door that you will have to remove with a small phillips screwdriver. The only thing that I can figure out is that you either need to leave this battery out for about 10 hours and put it back in and hopefully the calculator will reset itself. If not, you might try replacing this backup battery. Hope this helps.

Ok, so i replaced the batteries in the calculator.. And now it wont even turn on. Brand new batteries and everything, Any suggestions?


Hey this sounds like the classic contrast problem.
But first make sure that the batteries are good and that they are installed with the proper terminals alligned correctly
Second, and this is the classic problem, turn on the calculator and then press second and up. The screen should begin to darken and you should begin to see the cursor.
If you go to far or in the even that the screen is dark, lower the contrans by pressing second, 2nd, and then holding down.

Hope this helps
Happy Calculating

TI-89 won't turn on, even w/ new batteries


Try a hard reset:

Press and hold the 2ND, Left, and Right keys.
Press and release the ON key.

Be aware that this will clear all RAM.

Ti-84 problem!


Could be that your calculator needs to be reset. Take out the internal battery that is located in a tiny door with a screw right above the 4 AAA batteries. Leave this out for about 8 hours and put it back in. Put in the AAA batteries and the calculator will be reset and may work.

My texas instrument TI 83 plus graphing calculator will not turn on. Put new batteries in and still wont work. What could be the problem?


Many 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 at all. 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.
