The backup battery is intended to retain the contents of memory while you change the main batteries. It's possible to run the calculator without one.

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 this doesn't do it, please append a comment to this post and we'll go on from there.

My1998 explorer just quit it won't start i got new


The 98 explorer is equipped with a power surge system to protect internal vehicle wiring, what this means is that if there is a short in the vehicles wiring the alternator will disengage. A way to tell if it is faulty wiring is to pull all the fuses out of the fuse block and try to start it if the engine turns over the problem is internal wiring. If not then you have to put all the fuses back.

After a year in storage, jeep won't work.


the radio runs off of a seperate battery source, so that wouldn't have any effect on this, i would first of all check the battery and charger with a multimeter and make sure that they are showing the correct voltage, if its a 12v battery make sure that they are showing at least 12 volts, if its a 6v battery make sure that its showing at least 6v

Battery won't charge


So put the old power cord back on since you say it charged the battery normally. Why did you change it if it was charging the battery? It's quite possible that the new power cord is faulty. Just because it is new does not mean it works.

Remove the battery and plug the new power cord in. Does it boot the laptop up? Are you able to function with the new power cord plugged in. If so, then your battery is more than likely dead and needs to be replaced. The battery only has a useful life and once it is completely bad it will not charge.

Batteries won't charge


are the batteries over 4 years old? these particular batteries will lose their ability to hold a charge over time, and charging them will not have any effect. you could also have the charger tested. batteries plus stores can test the charger and the batteries for you.

The battery won't hold charge new battery


You put a new battery, now its acting like very low power again?
Most likely the alternator is bad. Maybe not putting out enough to recharge battery. Could have been the original problem.

Can be checked with a meter. Battery at rest should show 12 - 12.9 volts more or less.
With engine running, should be showing 13.5 - 14.7 volts as alternator is pushing electric back into battery.

If you start engine and (after say 10 seconds) voltage stays same or drops, then the charger needs to be replaced. Thats the alternator. Shop around at different auto parts store. (Phone first)

Cannon Speedlite 270EX doesn't turn on and I put new batteries in


Try cleaning out the contacts where the batteries touch. Make sure the battery door is completely flush with the body and see if you've inserted everything correctly. The type of battery you use also effects the flash recycle time and how it operates too. Have you tried using different types of batteries? Try using NI-MH instead of Alkaline and see if the speedlite will power. There's a test button on the flash and also an off-on switch you can try toggling around. The flash itself is very simple so if it still won't power on after all of that, you should contact customer support.

It seems to have no power the led light doesn't come on. its brand new, but I havent used it in about five years


Are you using battery or AC adapter for power?
Most pedals won't allow you to use both. Check that there is no battery installed if you're going to plug it in. If you are using a battery, Some pedals won't light an LED on battery power.
If problem persists, your pedal may be DOA
