Won't work at all

Went to take the SAT and needed my calculator. When I turned it on, nothing happened. Changed the batteries and tried again. Partial number for 1 second and then nothing. Any suggestions?

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.

It just went dead..no display, changed batteries and still nothing. I was using it when this happened.


It is possible that the calculator went dead because the main batteries were depleted. However when you change the main batteries, it is often the case that the display contrast changes, and may become too light for you to see anything. If that is the case, you can increase the contrast of the screen.
Press the [2nd] key and release it.
Press and HOLD the [UpArrow].

The contrast should increase and the screen darkens. Keep pressing the UpArrow until the display is satisfactory to you.

Calculator went dead ... changed the AAA batteries .. still nothing .. changed the CR1616 battery .. still nothing ... worked great last night while doing my homework .. didn't drop it or bang it .....


It is possible that the screen dimmed too much after you changed batteries. One of the two procedures will work.

Press the [2nd] key and release it.
Press the UpArrow and keep it held down for a while. As you hold pressure on UpArrow key the screen should darken. Stop when satisfied.

Alternative.

Press [2nd] key and hold pressure.
Press the UpArrow repeatedly until screen darkens to your liking.

My HP won't turn on anymore


I just fixed two "failure to power on" 49g+'s. For the first one I did a moderate slap of the unit against my thigh and then tried a reset (I thought maybe the reset was jammed with some debris) - it worked! The second one just needed me to scrape off some corrosion (an old toothbrush works) from the battery terminals - AJ
