TI- 83 Plus Silver Edition problem

I have had my calculator since the 8th grade, it is now close to 7 years old but i took very very good care of it and it looks basically brand new. I never dropped it or got it wet or let the batteries erode in it etc. This summer it worked fine for one of my statistics classes. Suddenly, right before an exam, it stopped working. I mean like BAM won't turn on. I changed the triple AAA batteries, still dead. So I assumed it was the smaller battery, I changed it with a brand new one, still didnt turn on, bought another new small battery, still didnt work.
The batteries are fine, i checked them on my roommates TI-83 plus, yet for some reason mine just won't turn on at all.
I love this calculator and I have no money for a new one, is there anyway I can fix this? Is there some sort of shop I can take it to or something I should do to it?
Please someone help me, I'd be eternally great full, as would my long time silver calculating buddy here, who seems to be in a coma.

Many TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on at all. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

There is no such thing as a TI89 Plus Silver Edition.

If you mean the TI-89 or TI-89 Titanium, press diamond / (the diamond key below the 2ND key, then the divide key).

If you mean the TI-83 Plus Silver Edition or the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, press MATH left-arrow 4 .

I have ti-83 plus silver edition when i trun it on all it say is that ti-83 plus silver edition 1.14 RAM cleared so when i click enter it trun off


The most likely cause is that the batteries are depleted, the main ones and the backup battery. Replace with fresh ones. In so doing you may have to readjust contrast.

To adjust the contrast.
Press [2nd] key and release it.
Press and Hold the UPArrow to increase contrast or DownArrow to lighten the screen.

In the message you reported, I notice that your OS is old. The latest version is the 1.19. You might see fit to update the OS. You can use the TIConnect software, downloadable from education.ti.com.

Install the TI Connect on your computer. Connect the calculator to the computer (after you install TI Connect) with th TI USB Silverlink Cable.
Run TI Connect and if you are connected to the Internet, click the Updates button in TI Connect.

Hello,
Well, if screen shows the RAM CLEARED message, that means your calculator is working. Just press the [CLEAR] key, message will be erased and you are ready to crunch numbers.
