How to Replace the Ink in Texas Instruments 5032

by Irene A. Blake; Updated September 26, 2017

Texas Instruments 5032 home and office calculators include models E-5032, TI-5032SV and TI-5032 SVC. These models feature a two-color printing system that uses an IR-40T or compatible ink roller that provides red ink for negative values and black ink for positive values. The roller is secured inside a cavity in the 5032 printer compartment. Replacing this roller simply requires that you remove the old one and insert and secure the new one, which should take only a few minutes.

Step 1

Turn off your Texas Instruments 5032 calculator.

Step 2

Press down on the transparent printer compartment cover. Push it toward the top of the unit to slide it from the compartment. Set the cover aside.

Step 3

Place your fingertip under the “Pull Up” tab. Lift up to pull the old roller from its cavity in the compartment. Set the roller aside for disposal.

Step 4

Remove the new ink roller from its packaging and orient it above the empty roller cavity.

Step 5

Insert it into the cavity and secure it by pushing down gently until you feel it snap-lock to both sides of the cavity.

Step 6

Slide the compartment cover back onto the unit. Turn the calculator back on.

Warnings

  • The Texas Instruments warranty does not cover damage that results from refilling an ink roller or using water to extend the life of an ink roller.
