This is not dancing. This is actually a feature put in by TI so that they could test the LCD for any faults - althought it is pretty cool :-)

The same thing happens if you hold down the 4 buttons in the lower left-hand corner and hit the ON/AC button. It's also a little easier to do it that way. I actually first saw this when a friend of mine dropped her calculator in class and when she picked it up it was dancing.

This works on a TI-36X Solar, too.

Heres a tip. Just smash the calculator with a flat and hard object. It should work. I have a TI36X and I don't see it "Dancing" just switching the LCD panels. But it works!

This also works with many other calculators. Especially scientific calculators.

I just hold the calculator face-down on a table/my leg with every button except On/AC held, and press down on it. The LCD starts alternating test patterns. BTW, a TI-36x Solar (the kind I have) only costs 15 bucks. A TI-83 might be more around 100, but those are way more advanced.
