Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
My TI-84 Plus was working fine until one night I was doing some homework. I turned it on and it showed up RAM Cleared. Along with that, not all of the buttons would work, and I would have to hold down the button for about a minute before it would register. And the calc would never shut off! It was on for 3 hours before I finally took the batteries out. I fixed that problem, it doesn't do that anymore, but now I press a button, any button, and it shuts off! The batteries are good, I've tested them, I don't know what to do!
What i think is that your calculator has water damage. It is not dead. There still is hope. The slow response is due may be due to a short in your I/O port. Blow really hard in there that might stop the slow response. Other than that let it sit without the batteries to dry. Then put the batteries back in and if that doesn't work its probably what spongeboob said and your going to need to ditch it.

Looks like its finally died,
the problem is probably due to moisture condensing on the processor which in turn moved some conducting material beteen an input, so sounds terminal to me, mine is nearly 20 years old and still going however !
