Question about Texas Instruments TI-89 Calculator
I left alone for one week and i tried to turn it on but it doesn't turn on. how can i trouble shoot it?
I had the same problem. I changed the batteries and it didn't work. I took out the batteries for about 30 minutes, and then put them back in, and it turned on.

I had the same problem with Ti89. I installed new sets of four AAA Energizer batteries but Ti89 didn't turn on. I tried replacing the backup battery "303" which costs $4 BTW. But it didn't do anything and a waste of money. Finally I checked the AAA batteries one by one on my Multimeter and found that one of the AAA batteries had a reversed polarity for some weird reason. I guess in must have been made that way in Energizer factory or something. So I throw that one out and replaced it. NOW IT WORKS!
FYI: I checked to see if Ti89 would work without the backup battery and it totally works! So don't bother replacing those unless you have some data stored in memory you don't want to lose.

Replacing the batteries (including the back up batteries) will fix this problem.
