However I doubt it. This looks more like a made up story to the results of messing with display instructions to me.
I doubt that anyone would make up any stories after messing with display instructions.... I'd reckon I would just tell what happened, also makes fixing problems easier :)
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

Heh, depends entirely on what someone is willing to pay.  Could be anything, really.  Someone wants one, somewhere, though, because at least my sister would: she reads things backwards.  It would be much easier for some people, actually.  Now, if the screen ever reversed the other way, that would be akward.  And I wonder how in the world it did it so cleanly (what did you do, TI?)... At any rate, I wish you well - it is an unfortunate occurence overall!
You should know, I am a Christian.

I waited overnight with all the batteries (including the backup) out, but not sure if it was 9 hours. I'll try again and hopefully it'll work again.

Try the proper reset methods:

Press and hold (in order) [2nd]+[Left]+[Right]+[ON]  (clears RAM)
Remove a AAA battery; replace it while holding [(-)] and [)]  (clears RAM and archive except OS)
Finally, maybe try redownloading the operating system

If these don't help, it must be the LCD that's toast. That's a pretty strange failure mode, though.

Yeah I remember people having this happen many times on newer 84+ calcs a while ago, especially with buggy Axe code. I didn't know it was possible on the 89T.
