Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator

1 Answer

I was currently using my TI-83 and the screen started showing these crazy symbols. I decided to change the batteries however; the screen now just comes up black or still show crazy symbols. It still shuts off but I can not do anything else with it. Can you tell me what might be wrong with the calculator or has it just died?

Hi..
this may caused by internal errors. ICs in your calculator must have died.
i think your calculator meets its end of days.. how long you being using this calculator.

TI-83 have adjusted the brightness but can't type or see flashing indicator


If the screen is not busted, adjust the contrast without going all the way to totally dark or to totally blank. Calculators do occasionally become unusable (old age, mishandling).

My TI-83 Plus is only showing a bunch of scrambled symbols when I turn it on. I have tried changing the batteries and nothing happens


I'm no expert with the TI-83, but generally when any computer does stuff like that, it's because the boot code is toast.

You can try hard resetting it and reinstalling the built in software. If you have anything stored on it, you will lose it. The instructions are here: http://www.ehow.com/how_5121373_reset-ti-plus-calculator.html

Failing that, you may be able to fix it by taking it apart, cleaning all the connections, and putting it back together.

My Ti-83 will not turn on, even after putting in new batteries. Occasionally some black will appear on the screen along with some symbols but it then shuts off. Any ideas what is wrong?


Try to increase the contrasts by pressing the key (2nd) and the up arrow until you can see the screen.
Tell me if this fixes the problem or not.

My ti 83 calculator turns on but nothing shows


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen, especially 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.

On TI-83 How do you change the batteries?


Try pressing the 2nd key and then holding down the up arrow key first.  This changes the contrast on the screen- makes it darker.  Pressing the 2nd key and then holding down the down arrow key will make the screen lighter
