Most calculators have solar power strips on top so if there is no strip its not solar. there should be a plate on the back if there is a screw you found the batterie area put a few calculators have to be pride open to get to the batteries but it usily depends on the brand of the calculator.

How do i charge my TI-30X IIS calculator

You don't. The 30X IIs runs on both solar power and a 2025 lithium battery. If you need to replace the 2025 battery, see this.

Texas Instruments TI25X SOLAR Calculator didgets not all showing

Even if there is an issue with the calculator it is no longer relevant because it is a discontinued product. It does not have a backup battery and it only uses Solar Power. I suggest to expose the panel to sun light to fully activate the display. And then again it may be just old age, and it is time for you to get a more powerful calculator.

It may not have found a solution yet. Try the [AC] button to clear the calculation. Around the 9 key it is marked CLR on the face of the calculator. Use the [SHIFT][ 9] (CLR) [1] to accept (SetUp) and [=] to confirm.

My Casio MS808V not functioning, the numbers don't show at all, it is like dead, can the battery be chenged?

Most calculators are solar powered, so the battery can be charged. Check to make sure the solar panel isn't covered up by anything. Other than that, all I can offer is that the keypad is wore out, in which case you could take it to a repair shop, but you are probably better off just buying a new calculator.

Does the calculator rely completely on solar Not turning on Do you have to change battery

The calculator uses a battery in addition to the solar cell. If the battery runs down you need to replace it. Turn the calculator over and you'll see the battery compartment in the upper-right corner (with a screw holding it shut). The calculator takes a LR44 battery or equivalent.

Make sure you clear the calculator after replacing the battery: press ON SHIFT 9 3 =

My HP 10s Scientific calculator does not switch on what could be the problem, is it maby because the calculator was left in a drawer and now the batery ran flat hou can I charge it on the solar power...

You can't charge the calculator off the solar power panel. The solar power panel merely conserves battery power when using the calculator in a bright environment. Try putting in a new battery and see whether the calculator turns on.
