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.

    Thank you for this idea. Unfortunately no luck. I also tried the solution of removing one of the batteries and then removing all the batteries including the backup. This did not work either. Any other ideas I would appreciate. Thanks again.

    Remove all four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ON key for ten seconds. Replace the batteries. Does the calculator turn on now (you may have to adjust the contrast as described originally)?

Hello, Hard to tell with info given, Try new battery to determine if it is battery related or a camera failure, Batteries are cheaper than camera repairs.

I have tooken the battery out for 10 minutes like this thing has said and its still not charging nor turning on? What else do I need to do???


Sometimes you just need a new battery. If you took the battery out and gently put the battery back in and it still won't turn on. Take it to the store you bought it and get them to look at it.

Polaroid A500 digital camera pressed ON button, nothing happened with new AA batteries and SD card


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My student's ti nspire won't turn on. They have the 84 face plate on it.


Hello,

Put in new batteries and try again.

If new batteries did not solve the problem, the next thing to check would be the battery terminal.

If the battery terminal is rusty, the battery power won't contact and the calculator won't turn on. So, use a flat small screw drive to scratch the battery terminal so that there would be contact.

If the above is not the problem, the next to check would be the wire connecting the battery terminal to the the calculator's main board. There is a wire between the battery terminal and the calculator board. When the battery is inserted, the power from the battery goes from the terminal to the board through this wire. There is a possibility that this wire is cut in-between or is loosing contact. In this case, you need to get a small screw driver and carefully disassemble the calculator in order to check the wire.

If the wire is intact, use a light brush to brush the calculator board as there might be dust on the board.

If non of the above helps, then it means the calculator is dead and needs a replacement.

Regards.
