Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator

Dropped the calculator!

My calculator fell out of my backpack by accident. Now it will not turn on at all. I tried new batteries with no success. Can this be repaired or is it time to get a new calculator? Thanks!

If it is under warranty, thats great. Understand that the typical service tech could charge $40-$100/hr. There is some internal damage that needs a tech to see or fix. If you can find a cheap tech in your area, get it looked at, otherwise at a price of around $100, you could get a new one. Good luck.

TI will charge about $45-50 to exchange it with a factory refurb. Or they used to a couple of years ago and I'm sure still do. It is highly UNLIKELY that any tech other than a TI tech equipped with TI replacement parts is going to be able to do anything or even trouble to look at it. Some of these answers here are simply ASTOUNDING.

Ti 84 water damage


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

Repair ti 84


Take the batteries out, leave the battery door open, and put the calculator with the battery door facing a running fan. Let it dry for at least 24 hrs. Good luck.

My Itouch is not working Help!!!!


If you would have allowed it to dry up it could have been saved. Now, unfortunately, it's most likely gone.
Remove the batteries and dry it in an hot place (use a hair drier at least  ten minutes for at least 2 days). Buy new batteries and try again. Who knows, you might get lucky.

Ti 84 not working


Hello,
Since it gets tossed around a lot, it is possible though improbable that the batteries lose contacts with the electrical terminals.
You may try to darken the screen a bit.
1. Press [2nd] key and release it
2. Press [UpArrow] and release it.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 in sequence until contrast is satisfactory.

If that does not fix the problem, use a calc-to-calc cable and try sending something to it from a working calculator.

You can also download the TIConnect software from education.ti.com and install it on your computer. Then connect the calculator to the computer by means of a USB cable, a TISilverCable, or a TI Graphlink (Black cable). Turn the calculator ON, run TIConnect, connect calc-to-computer and Click TIDEVICEINFO in TIconnect main window.

If it tells you NOT FOUND, on any of the ports, click the communication settings: Set the device type to you calculator model. Set the cable type. Set the port (COM x) or USB1
If calculator is not detected through any of the available ports (COM ports, or USB), then it would suggest that calculator is in need of repairs.

Hope it helps.

The calculator fell, after which it mon't display anymore.


Hello,
If you are lucky, the fall may have displaced the batteries inside so that electrical contact is no longer being made. Reseat the batteries and problem may disappear.
Hope it helps.

Well i suggest calling Texas Instruments
The chances of this happening are rare, but the back up
battery probably died. This could probably cause data loss
and you might lose the program and function data. Call and ask
to see what you could do.

Try Adjusting contrast:
Hold down "[2nd]" key press up or down arrow repeatedly to lighten or darken contrast.

First attempt reseting:
Step 1: Remove all the batteries
Step 2: Hold "Clear" key down
Step 3: Still holding "Clear" key reinstall batteries
Step 4: Still holding "Clear" key press "On" key until home screen is displayed.

Second shot reseting:
remove all batteries including lithium ion (backup battery), wait 3 hours and reinstall batteries.

Third Shot reseting:
Step 1: Remove a battery
Step 2: Hold down "DEL" key reinstall battery
Step 3: Possible msg pops up saying "Waiting ... Please install software" IGNORE msg and take out battery again
Step 4: Reinstall battery do not hold down "DEL" key

reseting will cause the handheld to loose all of its stored memory.

Other than that you will probably need to buy a new calculator

Hope that helps!

New TI-83 Plus never used with damaged screen


Honestly, the best thing to do would be to take it back to the place you bought it and see if you can return it. It would be less expensive to buy a new one than to repair a broken one. This time I have a suggestion: buy a cover for it if it's going to be in his backpack. I got mine from Staples!
