    Chapter 1: Operating the TI-83 Plus Silver Edition

    Documentation Conventions

    In the body of this guidebook, TI-83 Plus (in silver) refers to the TI-83 Plus Silver Edition. Sometimes, as in Chapter 19, the full name TI-83 Plus Silver Edition is used to distinguish it from the TI-83 Plus.

    All the instructions and examples in this guidebook also work for the TI-83 Plus. All the functions of the TI-83 Plus Silver Edition and the TI-83 Plus are the same. The two calculators differ only in available RAM memory and Flash application ROM memory.

    TI-83 Plus Keyboard

    Generally, the keyboard is divided into these zones: graphing keys, editing keys, advanced function keys, and scientific calculator keys.

    Keyboard Zones

    Graphing — Graphing keys access the interactive graphing features.

    Editing — Editing keys allow you to edit expressions and values.

    Advanced — Advanced function keys display menus that access the advanced functions.

    Scientific — Scientific calculator keys access the capabilities of a standard scientific calculator.

    Using the Color.Coded Keyboard

    The keys on the TI-83 Plus are color-coded to help you easily locate the key you need.

    The light gray keys are the number keys. The blue keys along the right side of the keyboard are the common math functions. The blue keys across the top set up and display graphs. The blue Πkey provides access to applications such as the Finance application.

    The primary function of each key is printed on the keys. For example, when you press !, the MATH menu is displayed.

    Using the y and ƒ Keys

    The secondary function of each key is printed in yellow above the key. When you press the yellow y key, the character, abbreviation, or word printed in yellow above the other keys becomes active for the next keystroke. For example, when you press y and then !, the TEST menu is displayed. This guidebook describes this keystroke combination as y :.

    The alpha function of each key is printed in green above the key. When you press the green ƒ key, the alpha character printed in green above the other keys becomes active for the next keystroke. For example, when you press ƒ and then !, the letter A is entered. This guidebook describes this keystroke combination as ƒ [A].

    The y key accesses the second function printed in yellow above each key.

    The ƒ key accesses the alpha function printed in green above each key.

    Turning On and Turning Off the TI-83 Plus

    Turning On the Calculator

    To turn on the TI-83 Plus, press É.

    • If you previously had turned off the calculator by pressing y M, the TI-83 Plus displays the home screen as it was when you last used it and clears any error.

    • If Automatic Power Down™ (APDé) had previously turned off the calculator, the TI-83 Plus will return exactly as you left it, including the display, cursor, and any error.

    • If the TI-83 Plus is turned off and you connect it to another calculator or personal computer, the TI-83 Plus will “wake up” when you complete the connection.

    • If the TI-83 Plus is turned off and connected to another calculator or personal computer, any communication activity will “wake up” the TI-83 Plus.

    To prolong the life of the batteries, APD turns off the TI-83 Plus automatically after about five minutes without any activity.

    Turning Off the Calculator

    To turn off the TI-83 Plus manually, press y M.

    • All settings and memory contents are retained by Constant MemoryTM.

    • Any error condition is cleared.

    Batteries

    The TI-83 Plus uses four AAA alkaline batteries and has a user- replaceable backup lithium battery (CR1616 or CR1620). To replace batteries without losing any information stored in memory, follow the steps in Appendix B.

    Setting the Display Contrast

    Adjusting the Display Contrast

    You can adjust the display contrast to suit your viewing angle and lighting conditions. As you change the contrast setting, a number from 0 (lightest) to 9 (darkest) in the top-right corner indicates the current level. You may not be able to see the number if contrast is too light or too dark. Note: The TI-83 Plus has 40 contrast settings, so each number 0 through 9 represents four settings.

    The TI-83 Plus retains the contrast setting in memory when it is turned off.

    To adjust the contrast, follow these steps.

    1. Press and release the y key.

    2. Press and hold † or }, which are below and above the contrast symbol (yellow, half-shaded circle).

    • † lightens the screen. • } darkens the screen.

  • TI-83 Plus Operating the TI-83 Plus Silver Edition 9

    Note: If you adjust the contrast setting to 0, the display may become completely blank. To restore the screen, press and release y, and then press and hold } until the display reappears.

    When to Replace Batteries

    When the batteries are low, a low-battery message is displayed when you:

    • Turn on the calculator. • Download a new application. • Attempt to upgrade to new software.

    To replace the batteries without losing any information in memory, follow the steps in Appendix B.

    Generally, the calculator will continue to operate for one or two weeks after the low-battery message is first displayed. After this period, the TI-83 Plus will turn off automatically and the unit will not operate. Batteries must be replaced. All memory should be retained. Note: The operating period following the first low-battery message could be longer than two weeks if you use the calculator infrequently.
