For some reason my ti-83+ has a weird display problem. I didn't do anything funny to it or something like that but was merely using it when it was low on batteries. When the batteries got really low, my screen started showing weird stuff like floating symbols and shaded boxes in place of numbers. Not a function displayed correctly nor have I seen a complete word show up. When i replaced the batteries, it continued acting weird....
Things i have tried-
1. Cleared All Ram
2. Imported another OS
Nothing works, does anyone knows the cause of this problem or how to fix this problem?
I had the same problem Jozhy. I fixed it by re-upgrading the OS using the latest version of TiLP (TILP2 version 1.04). When I tried it using the version of TiLP 2 that I had it didn't fix the problem. I understand that the version before the one that was released a few months ago didn't flash the OS correctly. Try it again after downloading the latest program.

This is kinda a weird situation. Because it's usually the other way around. Your ram will clear if your calculator is frozen. So take out all 5 batteries from the back. Even the back up battery. Then reset it again. 2nd then + then 7 then 1 Then 2. Good luck.
There maybe electrical shorts connecting the two motherboards, logic part and screen display part, or within the screen display part, causing the weird display when the calculator appears otherwise functional.
Open the TI 83+ case following the U Of Washington posting on fixing TI 83+ problem on inability to communicate with TI link cable between calculator and computer. I used the plastic tools in an IPod battery replacement set to open the TI 83+ case as plastic tools will cause less damage to the TI case.
Under the aluminun foil are the two motherboards, each a work of beauty. Good work TI. Connecting the two motherboards is a adhesive enbedded connectors sheet. Above that adhesive connector sheet was a different adhesive connectors sheet in the screen display part, which in my case, some of connectors were exposed. I wiped that adhesive connector sheet and the weird display disappeared with calculator functioning. I may buy some heat resistant clear adhesive tape to put over the exposed connectors part for insulation if problem occurs again.
The above may or may not be helpful.
