Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator

1 Answer

Random characters lines and pixels

I've never dropped my 83 but the last time I turned it on, it displays random characters and pixel sometimes short lines. I can still perform calculations, but they are mostly obscured by these symbols, the same applies to nearly all aspects of the calculator including the graphing screen, programs, and apps.

I've had a similar problem in the past with my TI-86. It still happens sometimes when I don't use it for a while. To fix it, all I did was set the screen to its darkest setting and left it on for 10 minutes (keep it from turning itself off, by pushing buttons every few minutes.) It works great, and the calculator is fine unless you leave it unused for a month or so. A similar solution may work for you.

Acer monitor has green lines on the scren


Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screens use less energy and display a clearer picture than the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays that preceded them. These new LCD screens now dominate the computer monitor market. From time to time, however, pixels can become stuck and a green line can display on the screen. Removing this line is sometimes possible without sending the screen to the manufacturer for expensive repair.

Locate the pixels that are stuck on the screen. Download a free screen repair software program, such as UD Pixel or JScreenFix. Run the software and allow it to find and attempt to repair the stuck pixels. Turn off the LCD monitor. Apply the damp cloth directly over the stuck pixels and use a gentle pressure to spread the liquid within the screen.

1. the motherboard might be bad and you will need to replace it. 2. or The power supply is bad
Chances are if its making clicks the power supply is bad and you will need to replace it. Which makes sense because constantly powering the tv on and off will damage the power supply or possibly short out your motherboard. These things usually cost about 200 bucks to fix at a local tv repair store.

When I turn on the calculator, I get a screen full of random black pixels. The AAA's and the lithium batteries are both good. Nothing I do will change the screen, except turning the calculator off.


Try to reboot your calculator to see if it helps by doing this:
*Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [CLEAR] key. While holding [CLEAR], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display the message "RAM Cleared". Release the [CLEAR] key and then press it one more time to remove the message. *
Let me know if it helps or not.

Ricoh CL3500N - not printing all characters on the page


It might be a print driver problem. I think there several different drivers. Go to Ricoh-usa.com and download all the drivers for the operating system you are using and try them. If there is a rpcs driver that might be your best bet.

Screen crazies


Doesn't sound like a good situation. My knee **** reaction would be to reseat the cable and power to the LCD screen. If that doesn't work, I'd take advantage of the warranty. They might be able to get you up and running in short order.
Hope this helps!

Ti83 Plus


e0df163.jpg does it look something like the example I gave? Anyways, I don't think that it can be fixed. and you can either:
A.) have the screen fixed (approx. $100)
B.) buy a new calculator (approx. $85)
( the monetary figures are approxamate and should not be taken literally, the $85 is at least what I last saw one for @ a Wal-Mart)
