Graphing calculator got coffee spilled on it

How do I get it to function? I changed batteries and still it doesn't turn on. I know when I had a problem with my cartridge video game system I was told to rub an eraser on the metal contacts. Should I open my calculator and rub it's metal contacts when an eraser? The calculator is a TI-84 Plus Sliver Edition

Thank you.

Your only hope is to open the case and wash out all the coffee with plain water. Don't forget to clean all the keys and switches under them. Dry and reassemble. This is a last chance procedure and may fail.
Don't spill liquids on electronic gadgets as the result is either much work or must replace.

My graphing function doesn't work for trigonometric functions.


The angle unit is not conform to your problem.
If angle unit in your problem is degrees, change angle unit to degrees on calculator.
Then change the Xmin, Xmax values to about -180 and 180

You're probably trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features. Press "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post and give a sample equation that causes this error.

I spilled gatorade on my TI84 graphing calculator..what should i do?!


Do not attempt to turn the calculator on for several days. Remove the batteries. Once the electronics (battery compartment especially) is dry, you can attempt to power it back up and it may or may not work.

How to use graphing calculator?


The casio FX-300Ms calculator cannot do graphs. To tell you how to use a graphing calculator TO DRAW GRAPHS we need to know the exact brand and model number of the calculator.

  1. Most graphing calculators basically function the same way.
  2. You select the graph type (function, polar,parametric, sequence, 3D, wire mesh, slope field, etc.)
  3. You enter the algebraic form of the function you want to draw.
  4. You press a button or menu to GRAPH
  5. The graph is drawn.
  6. If you want to see a particular part of the graph, you use a ZOOM function, or you enter values for the WINDOW dimensions.
  7. Most graphing calculators have a TRACE function that allow you to follow the curve you have drawn to read off values of coordinate points.
  8. You can also use the calculator to find zeros roots) of functions, calculate derivatives at some chosen points or calculate the area "under the curve", find the minimum and maximum of a function.
In addition to its graphing capabilities, a graphing calculator can be used as a scientific calculator. Sometimes it can also do statistical and financial calculations, matrices, list manipulations, operations on complex numbers, text editing,, creating programs etc.
