BLACK LINE WHEN TRY TO TURN ON TI-83 PLUS

I have a TI-83 plus and randomly when I try to turn it on a black line appears at the bottom of the screen and then goes off. When i try to turn it on again it won't work but if i hit the 2nd key and then On, it turns on but still with the black line. It happened once before and after countless times of removing the AAA batteries and even the Lithium battery and hitting it it worked- that was a month ago and now I am back to the same problem. I tried doing the "hold down the clear button while putting a battery back" and it didnt work- when it finally did work, the screen would go from light to dark when I touched a key and then all of a sudden it went back to only appearing a black like when i turned it on. HELP

It seems it have an internal problem of contact and you must get it repair, or consider buy a new one that model is a little old.

My Ti-83 will not turn on, even after putting in new batteries. Occasionally some black will appear on the screen along with some symbols but it then shuts off. Any ideas what is wrong?


Try to increase the contrasts by pressing the key (2nd) and the up arrow until you can see the screen.
Tell me if this fixes the problem or not.

  1. Try a new set of AAA batteries.

TI-83 Plus Problem


Batteries:
Make sure to replace the "battery backup" too the little lithium ion battery

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.

Hope that helps!
