Why will my calculator not
All items are tested at least twice. Yes,
all items work. Make sure that the batteries are in the proper way meaning
the negative and positive are in the correct direction. Also, make sure you
are using new batteries that were just purchased from the store.
Why does the screen not turn
If the calculator is turned on and the
screen is not displaying, the screen is set to the lightest setting. Press
the 2nd button and then hold the “up” arrow to make
the screen darker or 2nd and then the “down” arrow

Does CalcSwap take their own
Yes. All items we sell are with pictures
that we take. There is nothing worse than buying an item based on a photo,
and then having the item arrive to only notice it looks nothing like the
photo online. We state in the description,
We “Take Our Own” Pictures to ensure each
item is described to perfection. We believe a photo is worth a 1000 words.
May we pick up the items
that we buy from CalcSwap?
Unfortunately, all items must be mailed and
updated in PayPal with a tracking number for funds to be released to
How do I make the F5 key on
the TI-89 work?
The F5 key is the input/output key for any
program that you have in the calculator. It will only have a drop down menu
if the calculator has a program installed.
Why was the memory not
CalcSwap does not erase the memory because
students may want the programs that are already on the calculator. It
is very time consuming to download each one and some even cost money.
It is much easier, and preferred by students to let them delete and keep
what they want.
Does CalcSwap offer a
warranty on items I buy?
All items can be returned 7 days after item
is received for a replacement if the item does not work.
Does CalcSwap offer an
extended warranty on items it sells?

square trade to offer extended warranties. Each item will have a square
trade logo at the bottom of each item page for more information on extended
warranties. Square trade will handle all questions and replacements if an
extended warranty needs to be activated.
