Calculator got wet will it work again? - Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator

    That really depends on how wet it got, and with what. Was it fresh water, salt water, coffee, soft drink, what? And how much of the liquid got inside? Did you remove the batteries as soon as it got wet?

    Remove the batteries if you haven't already done so. Let it air dry at least overnight. Then, when it seems dry, insert batteries and try to turn it on. If it turns on, fine. If it doesn't, remove the batteries again and let it dry for another 12-24 hours.

Maybe. Independent of the drowned device, you should immediately remove the batteries to avoid electrochemical reactions. If you are able to dismantle the device, do it. It may be a good idea to rinse all parts with distilled/deionized water to remove any dirt, soap, sugar or salt contaminations - remember, dirty/salty water is a conductor for electricity.
Do not use alcohol or other chemicals for the cleaning.

Carefully towel away as much liquid as you can using clean tissues. For drying, let it open in the air in a clean (not dusty) environment for a day or two. Alternatively you can use a blow dryer to speed up the process but be careful with the temperature; plastic and glass do not like to get hot.

If you are lucky, the device may work again after dying and assembling.

My ti-84 plus got wet and now wont turn on

the only thing that I can recommend it to stick it in a zip-lock bag full of dry rice for 24hrs. Sometimes there is moisture that you just can't see & rice has a way of attracting liquids from electronic components. Hence, potentially saving your electronic device. If this does work -- if I were you I would suggest always storing your calculator, ritually, in a zip-lock bag so this does not occur again (I do this -- TI-84s are not cheap accessories -- better safe then sorry). Good luck!

Why the right most buttons of my SHARP EL-W506X scientific calculator does not function?

Mmmm... it sounds like the calculator has been dropped or possibly gotten wet - maybe with something wet & sugary, which when it dries leaves behind a sugar deposit that won't allow enough electrical connection for the keys to work.

At this point, you've got very little to lose - if you suspect that it may have gotten wet, you could pull it apart (carefully) and rinse it out inside - very thoroughly - with distilled water, then let it dry for about a week before you put it back together.

If it's been dropped, it's probably not worth repairing; even scientific or statistical calculators are inexpensive compared to the cost of repairs.

My calculator was left outside in the rain and doesn't turn on. I'm not exactly sure what's wrong with it specifically. It just doesn't operate.

The CPU of your calculator most likely got wet and rusted up the parts. If not, the screen may have gotten water damage. Either way, it will no longer work and you will have to buy a new one.

The buttons of my casio cfx-9850GC plus ( buttons f1,f2,f3,f4,f5,f6) dont work. What can I do to solve my problem???

First of all check its warranty, if exists, concern the authorized dealer or representative. If not unscrew your calculator and clean keypad with a wet white cotton cloth by rubbing gently you will see black spots on the cloth. place the keypad at where it was placed previously. You will find it working as usual. INSHALLAH.

Ink rollers

Unless the ink roller that you installed was dried out, usually, the replacement rollers just snap in place and are good to go. Check to make sure there is ink on the roller by either pulling the ink roller out again, and touching it with your finger. If no ink on your finger, you might have received a dried out replacement roller. Also the roller should be somewhat like a sponge. If you push against the sponge and it doesnt spring back and it stays indented, then the roller might also be bad. If you happen to have a bottle of ink for an ink pad, you can try soaking the roller with the ink so the roller is wet, (but not DRIPPING WET) and try it again in the calculator. IF you get some image for a little while, then I would say try a new fresh ink roller.
Hope this helps.
