Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
I can not get my calculator to come on. I have installed new batteries, both the four AAA and the backup #1616 battery and it still will not come on. What can I do?
I have the same problem with the calc not responding to removing one batt and reinstalling while holding clear, etc. My fix is to hook up wires to the battery leads and plug the wire into a 120 volt outlet. Watch it light up, but do NOT breath the smoke as it is extremely toxic. ;-) lkw

Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold CLEAR while reinstalling the AAA battery. Continue holding CLEAR button and press ON. Release buttons and press CLEAR again. Calculator should be normal mode now. ;0)

I read in the TI-83 Plus, if you happen to change both AAA's and the lithium battery all out at once you have 2 options. The 1st involved downloading software using Ti- Graph Link and a PC. The 2nd was similar to your suggestion involving resetting all memory. 1. Remove one battery. 2. Press and hold CLEAR while returning battery. Press ON (having not released CLEAR).When the home screen is displayed release the keys. 3.Press 2nd [MEM] to display the MEMORY menu. 4.Select 7:Reset to display the RAM ARCHIVE ALL menu. 5.Press > > to display the ALL menu. 6.Select 1:ALL MEMORY to display the RESET MEMORY menu. 7.Finally...select2:RESET. The message MEM CLEARED is displayed on the home screen.
