Display is so light that I can barely read it, I've replaced the batteries and no change

I have a display problem, the print on the screen is so light that I can barely read it. I have replaced the batteries but it didn't make the numbers and letters show up better screen. Any suggestions?

Have you attempted darkening the display on the calculator through the function keys? Push "2nd" and then push "up" a few times. After resetting the calculator, this setting will always revert to a lower, unreadable setting. I'm sure TI knows about this, but they probably arent too inclined to fix it.

Is there a way to change the contrast as two of my units have a barely readable screen as the numbers are too light to read easy


Too light numbers usually indicate weak batteries. If you're sure the batteries are new then the display is done.

Need to make print darker, hard to read


I have an old Kindle e-reader that I can barely read anymore. The text is not black anymore but light gray. There is no fix for it as it's simply a worn-out display. The earlier virtual paper displays had a finite lifetime of about 2500 hours I learned from doing research.

I bought a Kindle Paperwhite to replace it. I guess it will also wear out but hopefully technology has extended the time before it fades into oblivion.

Display is faint and to light to read


Turn the calculator on. Hold down the "C" key (just above the ON key) and press + to darken the screen. If you go too far, use the C and - keys to lighten the screen.

My caculator screen is faded, i can barely read the numbers. it s barely a year old and i put in new batteries. how do i fix this?


Hello,
After the change of batteries, the screen reverted to default contrast. You should try to darken the screen.
Press and hold the [Diamond] key and tap the [+] key. Keep at it until screen is dark enough.
Hope it helps.

Phone display is very dim-can barely read


Well, first you will have to check your options, if you can read it enough to get in there.  You may have the backlight turned off.  If the backlight is not turned off, then you probably have a bad backlight and will have to take it to your provider to get it fixed.  Replacing a screen/backlight is not something I would attempt to do unless you are certain you know exactly what you are doing as you can render the phone completely useless.
