lcd screen is cracked---can it be replaced?

i accidentally dropped my TI84+CE and a portion of the LCD screen is dark when I turn it on. Overall, the calculator still functions fine, but that sliver of the screen doesn’t display anything. It appears that the LCD screen is cracked. Can one purchase and replace just the LCD screen?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Do you happen to still have that TI-84 Plus CE? If so, would you be willing to sell it? I may be able to use it for parts.

Hey, does your screen happen to look something like this?

If so, it sounds like you have the same problem as Broken pixels came back on my ti 84 plus ce LCD, can this be fixed?. If not, could you please post a picture of what your display looks like? It’ll make it much easier to understand what’s going on.

If you’re lucky, the ribbon cable connecting the LCD to the motherboard may have simply come loose. If you remove the back shell you can try re-setting the ribbon cable. (refer to this guide for help with handling the ribbon cable)

If those don’t work, then I know the display is a GiantPlus GPM1421C0 and the latest display is a GPM1607A1 (it doesn’t matter which one you get since they are interchangeable), unfortunately, I have no idea where you could buy one since I believe TI sources them directly. :(

In order to get a working display, you’ll need to buy a broken TI 84 Plus CE(-t) that still has a working display and salvage the display out of that. Make sure not to buy a TI 84 Plus CSE since the display is NOT compatible with the TI 84 Plus CE(-t).

Just out of curiosity, does RAM resetting or reinstalling the OS help fix your display?

If this was a CASIO, they car replace the screen so give the main repair facility in America a call, do not use your local repair authorized dealers. Before making your final decision, add in the shipping cost both ways, now is it worth fixing??

Unfortunately, I don't think TI has their repair services up to par with Casio. If you send the calculator back to TI, they just send you a new one and make you pay for it.

Casio gave the list of 3 major parts, in my case the screen was one. AGAIN ask them on the phone if the screen is available assuming that is all that broke. If you send it in, they give you a free estimate, you dont like it, you paid for shipping to and from the repair facility. NOW decide whats best for you.
