Solution 14800: Replacing the Battery in a TI-1706 SV.

How can I replace the battery in a TI-1706 SV?

The TI-1706 SV is dual powered. It is solar and battery powered to work anywhere. The TI-1706 SV uses one LR54 (1.5V) alkaline button cell battery.

About replacing the cell battery on a TI-1706 SV:
For safety purposes and to prevent ingestion, the button-cell batteries in school and student-owned calculators as well as basic/elementary calculators without battery doors are not designed to be replaced. It is possible to replace the battery by removing the back case of the calculator, but opening the back of the calculator voids the one-year, limited warranty. This must be done carefully, as we cannot be held responsible for any damage caused when you attempt to replace the battery. If your calculator is already out of warranty, you might choose to remove the back case to replace the battery

To replace the button-cell battery:

• Using a small Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that are on the back of the calculator.
• Carefully pry apart the back case and the front case. Be careful not to damage any internal parts.
• Remove the lithium battery carefully and replace it with a new one.

Safety precautions:

• Avoid contact with other calculator components while changing the battery.
• Properly dispose of the used battery immediately.
• Do not leave batteries within the reach of children.
• Do not incinerate batteries.

If your calculator does not power on, please see Warranty Information on Texas Instruments Products Purchased in the United States and contact Texas Instruments by filling out the TI-Cares™ Customer Assistance Form or by calling 1-800-TI-CARES (1-800-842-2737) Monday-Thursday 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM, Friday 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM Central Time to obtain service information.
