I got a baaad baad feeling about this...when the pixels shuld be white (0 power), they're black (power=1)when they should be black, they're blue (power=2 == too much)and blue is a sign youre frying the pixel and it's actually dyingto me it looks like there is a power line where there should be none... like these pixels get extra energy they're not ment ot get...try NEVER to run a program that will cause blue pixels fullscreen, I'm certain this would finish your pixels instantly..
i'd be amazed if you can't get a refund for this... dont know too much about ebay thoughdead (or always on) aren't that uncommon, because LCD screens aren't actually that easy to make, so with laptops etc, it is ok to supply them with 1 or 2 dead pixels, and that is within specnever seen anything as bad as this though
At first, I was scared that you meant actual pixels are shown up as squares even when batteries are not in or are in, which could have implied a bricked calcs, but now that I see this I am happy that the calc works. It still sucks, though, since the seller stated something about some scratches rather than damaged pixels. Sadly I doubt much can be done about it unless you are tech-savy enough to replace the LCD. It can still be used fine as is, since you will most likely test your softwares on the student software or via Firebird Emu. Otherwise, if you program directly on the calculator, then if you need to test if your HUD/UI works (eg Sorcery of Uvutu location/HP) then just offset it by a few pixels so it's away from the damaged area, then move it back in the damaged area once you are sure it displays properly.I wonder if the seller could be contacted to see if you could get a bit of a discount, though? (even if not a lot)
Yeah, personally I doubt a refund is possible since it mentioned something about scratches, but a partial refund could be possible since it did not mention anything about pixel damage, unless it's the shipping carrier's fault.Also I think his blue pixels show up even when the calc is turned OFF with all batteries removed @p2 By the way @123outerme did your calc come with a student software license? If not then you'll have to rely on Firebird Emu.
I think by overpowering the LCD with code he was refering to test mode on the TI-83 Plus series, which causes the entire screen (or horizontal lines) to literally turn blue. Also if the calc cover was on, I doubt the damage was caused during shipping. It probably happened before while the cover wasn't on.
I suspect that the calc suffered an impact during shipping
