TI65 Programs Part I:
Digital Root, Complex Number Multiplication, Dew Point
Recently working with the HP71B and Radio Shack EC4004, I
am feeling the 1980s vibes and staying in the decade for the 1987 classic
calculator Texas Instruments TI65.
Some background information of the TI65 (provided by
Datamath): http://www.datamath.org/Sci/Galaxy/TI65.htm
Did you know the TI65 has a timer? Click here to see a video demonstration!
This is the first part of programs for the TI65 for this
Fourth of July.

TI65 Digital Root
Takes the digital root of an integer. To find the digital root:
1. Add up the number’s
digits.
2. The sum is over
10, add the digits again.
3. Repeat step 2
until you get a single digit.
Or alternatively, use the formula dr(n) = 1 + ((n1) mod 9)
= n – 9 * intger((n1)/9)

TI65 Complex Multiplication
(a + bi)*(c + di) = (r1*r2) * e^(i*(θ1 + θ2))
Where r1 ∠ θ1 is the polar form of a + bi
and r2 ∠
θ2 is the polar form of c + di.

Hi Eddie,
ReplyDeleteHave you got any information about how to repair LCD of this amazing calculator?! I buy one on a Hungarian auction site (the seller said the unit is not working  I know that the battery replacement is little tricky and maybe the seller do not know that and I was right).
So, everything is works but on the LCD some annunciator is not shows. It is possible to fix it?!
Csaba
Another little thing: Maybe this is the slowest calculator on the world?!
ReplyDeleteCsaba
Yes, it‘s very slow. ;)
ReplyDeleteRepairing the LCD depends to the kind of fault. A degraded or delaminated display has to be replaced. Bad connected displays (missing segments) have a good chance to be repaired. If it’s connected via zebrastrips cleaning or replacing the strips helps. If it‘s connected via flatflexfoil heat and pressure sometimes help. It‘s a bit trickier. Search for LCD repair videos on YouTube.
BTW: Useful blog about vintage calculators. Thanks!
