Screen does not display complete numbers

Half of the display is only working, the problem is in the driver ic that drives the display, it is simply not cost effective to repair the item, further ahead to replace the calculator.

The calculator is intermittent: Most of the time

Not knowing what to do, I tried anything that could possibly help:

I installed fresh batteries and I pushed the reset button on the back of the calculator (Sharp EL-546L) and finally, it work all right after more than 5 years I own the calculator and where it did work correctly for 5 minutes. I tried the reset button in the past (long time ago) and it didn't work. This time it worked because, maybe, I've used fresh batteries.

TI-82 display isn't fully working

This happens alot with calculators that have been in storage for a while, you can fix this by taking the batteries out and let it sit overnight.

Display / LCD issue

Try adjusting the brightness setting for the LCD screen by holding down the "on" key and pressing the "+" key at the same time to make your screen darker or the "-" key at the same time to make it darker.

Batteries

Unscrew the six small screws on the back with a small phillips cross head screwdriver (an eye glass screwdriver works fine), then carefully prise off the back using a flat blade in the two slots at the top of the calculator.

Keep it upside down or the display will fall out!

You'll see the two 1.5 volt alkaline batteries there, GPA-76 type (flat, round) in mine. Ease them out carefully and replace them, positive side up.

Alternative battery codes (manufacturer dependent) L1154, AG13, GA13, AG76, GP76A, 675HR, LR1154, LR44 per battery web sites, maybe others.

Make sure batteries are seated and display is in its correct position, replace back cover and six screws.

Caveat 1 : You can buy the TI-30XA for about $10-$13 at Staples/Amazon, two batteries will set you back around $5-$7!! But they last a couple years even with heavy use. TI-36X and TI-30X IIS are better calculators and have solar cells as well.....but about twice the price at $17-$25.

Caveat 2: I had one of these where the display faded, replaced batteries, did nothing because circuit board or display was bad. So you could replace batteries and waste the time/money.
