Dropped the calculator!

My calculator fell out of my backpack by accident. Now it will not turn on at all. I tried new batteries with no success. Can this be repaired or is it time to get a new calculator? Thanks!

If it is under warranty, thats great. Understand that the typical service tech could charge $40-$100/hr. There is some internal damage that needs a tech to see or fix. If you can find a cheap tech in your area, get it looked at, otherwise at a price of around $100, you could get a new one. Good luck.

TI will charge about $45-50 to exchange it with a factory refurb. Or they used to a couple of years ago and I'm sure still do. It is highly UNLIKELY that any tech other than a TI tech equipped with TI replacement parts is going to be able to do anything or even trouble to look at it. Some of these answers here are simply ASTOUNDING.

Ti 84 water damage

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.

Take the batteries out, leave the battery door open, and put the calculator with the battery door facing a running fan. Let it dry for at least 24 hrs. Good luck.

A blue line appeared on the calculator when I changed batteries and now it will not turn on. What is the problem

Sounds like you probably dropped the calculator and it broke. The line that you spoke of is a common problem that is seen when calculator's take a fall. Seems like when it first fell, the screen broke a bit. And then from moving around and stuff, it's completely broken. I would contact Casio and see if they have a store that you can bring it in to get it checked out. Sorry. Hope this helps...

My Itouch is not working Help!!!!

If you would have allowed it to dry up it could have been saved. Now, unfortunately, it's most likely gone.
Remove the batteries and dry it in an hot place (use a hair drier at least  ten minutes for at least 2 days). Buy new batteries and try again. Who knows, you might get lucky.

Lens won't retract

You could try to gently pull the lens straight. If it's leaning to the right then pull the lens to the left. Don't use brute force but it's possible to realign the lens this way. If it works you'll hear a click and the lens will look straight. Switch on and see if it retracts. I'd only use this as a last resort because you can cause additional damage if it's overdone. It has sood success rate also

TI-83 Calculator

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.

Broken calculator....loose piece inside

It sounds like you may have broken an important part of your calculator. You may have chipped the circuit board on the inside, because that is what had happened to my co-workers calculator when he had dropped it. He had to replace his entire calculator. You may have to replace your calculator as well.
