- TI 83 Plus problems
- 03 Aug 2017 05:43:47 pm Permalink
Just picked up a TI 83 Plus from Goodwill for a couple of $$$. It works, but acts up every now and then. The cursor blinks about 4 times per second, but sometimes it blinks so fast that I can't count it. Also, sometimes it won't accept any keys and I have to remove a battery to turn it off. I can get it working again by removing and replacing the battery. It's nothing that I'm going to use on a regular basis, just adding it to my calculator collection. Just wondering why the cursor blink changes speed. When the cursor is blinking fast, the scroll seems to go faster, but if I run a program, it doesn't look like that runs faster. There doesn't seem to be any reason why the cursor goes so fast. Sometimes it's fast when I turn it on, other times it speeds up after a short time.
