I assume you meant "won't turn on."

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 respond to this post and we'll go on from there.

How to change the clock on tracfone lg440G


To change the time on a Tracfone LG440G, turn the phone "off", then turn it back "on". If that doesn't work, turn it "off", remove the battery, reinstall the battery, turn it "on". Time should display properly. No way to change the time manually.

I haven't used my TI-83 Plus in a few years and now i need it. I changed the batteries and tried to turn it on. It won't turn on. I'm thinking maybe I need to change the back-up battery?


The backup battery is only to retain the contents of memory while you change the main batteries. It does not affect the operation of the calculator in any other way.

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.

The calculator will not turn on a TI 83 plus, batteries changed


You say you changed the batteries. Did you also change the back up battery? It's located in a little door with a screw right above the AAA batteries.

My students have come to me many times and have said that their calculator will not turn on. Most times it is that the contrast on the screen has been turned down and the calculator is turning on but the screen is too dim to see that it's on.

To check your contrast, turn the calculator on, press the 2nd key and the up arrow. This is how you darken the screen. You lighten the screen the same way but you use the down arrow instead.

Wrong batteries settings prevents access to menu


Charge fully the batteries you have, to prevents the camera distinguish the type of batteries (maybe the camera senses the charge), turn on the camera and you will have access to the menu to set up the batteries type correctly, that´s all.

My computer is changing the time back to 31/12/02 every time its turned on


Your motherboard backup battery is gone.
This is a watch type battery mounted on the motherboard that powers the chip (CMOS) that retains basic information (BIOS) about your computer while it is turned off.
The battery is gone and not holding the time and date.
The battery is very easy to change, do you have a tower computer or a laptop and are you OK with looking inside the case for the battery?
