Introduction

This guide will teach you how to remove and replace the battery to the TI-30XS Multiview. Be sure to note the orientation of the battery for when a new one is being put in.

  1. If the screw is not turning, do not force it. This can strip the screw.  See the How to Remove a Stripped Screw guide if the screw is already stripped. Using the #00 screwdriver, unscrew the six, 6mm Phillips screws.

    • Use the spudger to pry into the space between the blue back cover and the white body to take off the back cover.

    I didn’t have a spudger but a flat 3/32” jeweler’s screwdriver worked just as well. Also, the battery slides out the side, nothing to undo. I slid it out using a jeweler’s screwdriver. (Don’t touch any electrical components or traces with the metal tip.) If you’re not sure the battery is good, turn the unit over and see if there is anything displaying, or run a test operation like 2 x 2 etc. to check before putting the back into place.

    • Put the new CR2032 battery in. Never insert a different type of battery!

    • Reverse the steps 2 and 1.

    And if the calculator doesn’t turn on if you press “on”,

    press the “reset” button on the back.

Hi, I followed your steps but my battery cover is not in the location that your photo indicates and the cover screws are not visible. There seems to be something covering them?

Why would my battery be situated next to the round black thing and yours is located above it at the top? If the calculator is a TI-XS 30 Multiview why on earth would they vary the orientation of internal components?

(I have had this calculator since 2006 - 12 years - it died this morning and I am disconsolate. Please help me figure out how to take the battery cover off or convince me to dispose of it.) ….I hate throwing away a good machine, even if I need to buy a more up to date graphing machine.

Please note - My battery screws (the ones that were inside the calculator next to battery) were actually glued over. I had to push the old battery out with my screw driver and push it out manually. It worked though. Glad I didn’t have to toss it, one less thing going into the land-field.

Wait a minute. Why does this calculator need a battery if it has a solar cell. It must be a fake solar cell to deceive.

It charges the CR2032.

You can shine a light on the panel and remove the battery and the calculator will still work.

Steve Benitah -

It should be mentioned that you should insert a rechargable ML2032 instead of a common non-rechargable CR2032, since the solar panel will recharge the battery and standard CR2032 batteries are non-rechargable.
