Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
I installed new batteries, including the backup battery and then did a reset. The calculator turned on and worked fine. The next morning it would not turn on again. I can change batteries and reset it and it will work for a day, but then it stops. What is going on.
I'm not sure if this will help you patchesb7; it sounds like your calculator is having issues :(
This will help others whose calculators suddenly won't turn on anymore, even after changing the batteries.
Note: This will return the calculator to the way it was when you got it out of the package. Any data or programs have stored since will be lost.
Step 1: Remove all four AAA batteries.
Note: You will have to hold down the CLEAR button while doing Steps 2 and 3. Do not let go until after you have pushed ON in Step 3. I found this easiest to do by holding the calculator upside in my left hand with my pointer finger holding the CLEAR button so the ON button was easier to access.
Step 2: Hold down the CLEAR button (located under the arrow keys) and reinstall the AAA batteries.
Step 3: Press ON button and then let go of both buttons. The screen should say the RAM has been cleared. Press CLEAR to continue.
