Question about Texas Instruments TI-89 Calculator
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.
If that doesn't do it, reset the calculator. Press and hold the lef-arrow, right-arrow, and 2ND keys, then press and release the ON key.
If that doesn't do it, remove one of the four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ) and (-) keys while replacing the battery. Continue to hold the two keys down for at least five seconds before releasing them.

Try doing a hard reset (hold simultaneously Left + Right + 2nd + On). If it just isn't wanting to display properly, but does turn on, that might help. I think you can do the same thing by taking the four AAA's out and the spare CR1616/CR1620. Otherwise, the battery acid probably ate one of your components and it's time to repair/replace your handy-dandy.
