    How is it not working?

    If it's not turning on, make sure you have good batteries and that they are inserted properly. Also, make sure the contacts are clean and free of corrosion.

    TI calculators also 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.

    Or are certain keys not working? Certain functions? Getting wrong results?

    Hey! akima thanx for attending ma prob. Highly appericiate if you could solve my post.
    I am screwed. My display is coming, cursor blinking, have brand new AAAs, But my TI83 does not take any input. It was working very well untill wt happened. U even cant switch off unless it automatically switches off.
    Gv me a hand mate..

    Remove all four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ON key for ten seconds. Replace the batteries. Does the calculator now turn on and work normally? You may have to adjust the screen contrast as I originally described.

    Nope mate, tried ur solution for couple of times but no avail. Any more reccomendations? besides I am in Sri - Lanka, there is no vendor for TI calculators..

    What shall I do mate?? :( :(

    Okay, you're stumping me. A couple of thoughts:

    What type of batteries? If you're using rechargables, try a set of alkalines and see if the higher voltage makes any difference.

    Make sure the battery contacts are clean and free of corrosion.

    Was the calculator working recently? Has it been stored with batteries inside?

  • gajonline Oct 01, 2010

    I ll try ur solutions and let u knw.. It was working perfectly fine upto what happened. My AAAs are not rechargeable and I guess the cal doesnt support rechargeables. Yes I always keep the batteries inside when I am not working. I am use to this cal and luv it. So i wudnt want to settle for a casio fx for this one..

Having received no response in half a year, I assume the suggested reset solved the problem.

Permanent black screen

Unplug power supply from the laptop and remove the main battery, press and hold power for at least 2 minutes in an effort to reset the system, if this works disable hibernate mode if you are using it because it eventually corrupts windows.

My daughter is starting 6th grade and they have asked her to get a T1-30XA or TI-83/TI-84, she is not advanced in math. Which on would you recommend ?

The Ti83/84PLUS are a lot more advanced than the TI-30XA because thaeu can graphs, statistics, calculus etc. But they lack a key for the % function, and a key for the fraction manipulation, the angle unit conversions (deg, radians, et grads) and they are a lot more expensive than the TI30XA.

Before your daughter finishes high school, you will eventually have to buy her a graphing calculator but right now a TI83/84Plus calculator seems like overkill. Besides some teachers may not let students have graphing calculators during exams.

Honestly I suggest you buy the TI-30XA Solar version. There are some new nifty calculators manufactured by Casio (Casio FX-115ES, FX-991ES, FX-300ES), Sharp (El-506W, 516W ). The beautiful thing about these new kinds of calculators is that you can configure them to use the Textbook display: equations and expressions can be entered as they would appear in textbooks. The Casios are called Natural Display and the Sharps are know as WriteView models.
In fairness to Texas Instruments, they too have calculators that incorporate that display format but I do not know the exact model numbers (maybe TI34XII multiview).

I bought a used TI83 for my Teacher Certification Exam. I am unable to follow the very first problem of the Instruction Manual. I went as far a step # 5. On step # 6 I could not get -.666666667 as one...

An error in syntax in a software usually refers to in input error.

You may be you may be skipping step or using the wrong input term, or key.
It does not refer to the problem,but the input processes

.Hope this helps.

When you make a list, in order to get out of it, you must press 2nd mode (quit). Do NOT press clear, it will delete your list. I think this is what you mean, I hope I was a help.
