I recently lost one of my programs and reloaded it back on to my calculator, ever since then when I turn it off and then press the on button again it takes about 5-10 minutes to turn on. Also when I go into the file manager the same thing happens except it takes alot longer to reach the file manager page.....
I have reset it, i have reloaded the operating system, i have cleared the memory and tried it with no programs on it at all and still the same thing happens....
Any help would be greatly appreciated,

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. 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. Does it?
sounds like your backup battery is dead.. and maybe the clear or del key stuck down as either way it could wipe the program.. The solution i think is to hit the TI website and get the software reload and directions to reload it from there.
My screen was frozen and I needed to do a manual reset. If you take out 1 battery from the back....hold the "del" key down and reinsert the battery while holding it down....it will reload the programming into the calc
Well i suggest calling Texas Instruments The chances of this happening are rare, but the back up battery probably died. This could probably cause data loss and you might lose the program and function data. Call and ask to see what you could do.
Ti helper has a correct answer but you may want to try garbage collecting first. To do this press 2nd catalog and then g and then press enter when you find garbage collect. Then enter again and say yes. This should give you back the mem if not you need to reset the ram.
